ok, so far I got six layers of paint on. What was I thinking spray painting in this cold weather. Sometimes thinking hurts but no gain without a little pain. It proved not a good idea to warm the chassis in a oven just before spray painting it outside ) Oh well, there's always a sandpaper...

Been there before.... sanding bad finish, repaint only to get a drip or orange peeling. More sanding till your arm drops off : )

I've been painting a chassis this week, 2mm thick ali, I warm the various parts in front of the fire, not too warm though and put my spray can in the same place to warm giving it a shake every 5 minutes or so.

Andy.

I took 3 days to repaint a bicycle. I spent more time and money on stripper, paint, and sandpaper than it would have cost to have the thing powder coated.

hey, it's the satisfaction of own labor that counts My compressor is in a frosty shed and thinning paint only works to a limited degree as the case starts dipping when drying inside the house. Almost got the blisters out, perhaps another three or four layers to go.

Waitin' for the paint to stop dripping I did some more modelling, with Micro Cap this time. Output impedance is confirmed to be non-existant (flat from DC to 20KHz). Although the LTspice result is confirmed both programs might use the same dodgy underlaying core-SW. Opinions are welcome because I have a hard time to accept the not of this world outcome.
