Default Greetings from California...

I'm a warranty manager and quality inspector for a large home builder during the week and on the weekends I occasionally help out friends with some home flips or painting projects. I've been in the construction industry for 10 years and I came to the site about a year ago by chance. I've been lurking and reading through the threads but haven't done any posting.

I frequently use the "Talk.com" forums as reference material when I feel our contractors are feeding me a line of BS. Needless to say some of our production painters will tell all kinds of stories to try and cover up for crappy workmanship and this forum has been a valuable resource.

Thanks to this forum I've built up a legitimate stock of painting tools, techniques, and knowledge. I figure if the home building side slows down any more and cuts me loose someone out there would have good newbie for their paint crew...

On the personal side I'm a big 4 wheeling enthusiast (hence the Rubicon reference in my name) and spend a fair amount of time running around the Sierra Nevada's when I'm not working. I also enjoy grinding and welding on metal any chance I get.

Dave

Wheeling on the Rubicon trail in the winter is my favorite...

Welcome, Fwiw, crappy production painting is directly linked to crappy pay rates. Scientific fact.
