It was kind of weird to see in a UK house that is why I asked. Its better for bass for sure. Slate or marble floors on concrete pillars are the norm in Mediterranean houses. And they are cold on bare feet during winter even here.

This will be the single greatest video you will see all year.

After I'd finished editing this together and attempting to sync it with the sound I realised "Wow, I really am one sad b*&"$d!" I think its pretty cool though

Video of me spraying(click to download 15.6Mb)

Its fairly big but the cheese factor makes it all worthwhile.

This is a divx movie file so you'll need the divx codec if you don't already have it. You'll need to drag and drop this onto your media player most likely, you can try double clicking but it does nothing for me.

Enjoy.

Very nice.

What is the music?

Next time, you should pretend to be a robot spraying and then it will be complete!

*LOL* Ant, you have far too much time on your hands.

What surprises me is how many passes you make. Having moved from that turbine to compressed air, I've found the improved atomisation means you make more passes, laying down finer, but much more even, coats. Is that what's happening in your vid (i.e. those new guns you've got lay down a really thin coat)? I'm pretty certain I'd get some running of the paint if I did the same.

BTW One useful thing I've found - a pair of safety goggles don't half reduce the amount of paint that ends up on your glasses!

I really have very little to say in my defense. Me a mate did nothing but laugh for 35 minutes whilst we edited it together. My stomach still hurts.

Thats the Iwata you see in action there and its spraying clearcoat. As you can see the atomisation is excellent and it lays paint down wet but not so thick as you'd risk runs. Again that's the another difference between the really nice guns and the budget ones. Each pass builds up a thin film. If you look in the reflection in the top of the baffle you can clearly see the film going down and the overlap I use. In total I normally do 7 coats, the video shows just one, and there's a 15 minute flash time between each.

I agree and that why the specs were an old pair. I remember when I first started doing this, got a load of overspray on my best pair of glasses and then washed them in harsh gun wash thinner. They had plastic lenses and it attacked them... ended up having to fit new lenses!

Wow, this really brings a whole new element to DIY speakers. I think I speak for everyone here when I say that pictures are probably my favorite part about DIY audio. Videos bring a whole different element to the experience of viewing someone else's project. I don't think it's a half bad idea for people to take walk-around videos of their project at various stages and then at completion. It makes the whole thing seem more real and I think gives you a better idea about proportion and real shape.

Here's the photo's.

The colour is pearl white over a white basecoat. Gives off a soft and warm glow in domestic lighting whilst being erm... pearl like in sunlight.

Nice classy colour that the camera finds impossible to capture correctly. Looks better up close and personal than it does in these shots.
