    Billie, it is good to see you use "my GPR" in a sentence consecutively. You better atleast keep a GPR hull in your stable.

    so you take that stuff lay it on whatever your going to paint spray horizontally one direction then spray horizontally the other direction(going back over what you already sprayed)? Is this correct?

    I wanna do this to my glovebox..

    also... any tips on what type of airbrush kit?
