    I just got an Izuzu Amigo and I plan on painting it myself. The problem I've run into is I have to paint it outside because I don't have a garage. how can I keep the dust off it?

    I've got a shop now, but I have painted a few at home when I didn't have the shop. Usually just did it in the early morning hours before the wind kicks up and wet down the floor. You can figure on having to do some color sanding and rubbing to get any specs out of the final finish. Also have to watch out for humidity if you live in a cold damp area. If doing it inside a garage, make sure everything else is covered so that over-spray doesn't ruin anything.

    Most important: wet down floor. Do not sweep it!
     

     

    Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car. Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall. Torque is how far you take the wall with you.
