Default Kindig-It paint class

Attended the Kindig-It paint seminar over the weekend. I highly recommend this course to anyone who paints or is planning to paint their project. Bryce the body shop manager and Freddy the head painter worked hard to cover every step from prep to sealing to base to clear including how to make repairs. Gun setup and spray technique were also covered. There was a lot of hand on spraying in the two booths. The amount of work that went into preparing this class was amazing. Bryce and Freddy are great guys and were happy to answer everyone’s questions and to share their techniques and tips.

I’m a self taught backyard hack and have always wanted to learn from someone who paints for a living. Taking a class in a high end custom shop was the ultimate for me.

An added bonus was being able to wander around the shop and check out all the projects. Great things going on there. Dave even dropped by Sunday afternoon to say hello.

That's great Don!! Although, for you to be a "self taught, backyard hack," as you say, I've seen your work and it's nothing short of awesome. So, you can only get better and add to a good skill that you already possess. Keep up the good work.
