Hi all,
I've finally finished making a chest of drawers I've been on for months and it is ready for spraying. I don't have a spray booth, so I use HVLP outside. Can anyone tell me what sort of minimum temperature I need to spray pre-cat successfully, I've only ever sprayed in the summer!

Cheers
Steve

Steve,
I have had all sorts of misery below about 12 degrees and prefer to stay above 15, also one has to watch the high humidity in damp conditions - perfect for unwanted bloom.

That was quick, Chris! :)
15 deg, eh? Well it's not sitting in the workshop til May, it'll have to live upstairs unfinished for a while. :(

Thanks very much indeed,
Steve
