welcome, hope you can be comfortable here in a place where (most) everyone is involved with architectural coatings. I don't think we have any automotive, marine, or aviation painters here.

I just follow the rules or whatever, but I am interested in anything you have to share. Sounds like you have skills.
The curse of the painter is like this, I was flying a month ago and looking out of the window I noticed the failing paint on the wing!
Some people here do their work with pride I guess you noticed also.

Welcome.

Usually, windmill parts are painted on the ground, in a huge paintbooth that spins it around. They use a system that includes a sacrificial zinc coating and other harsh chems. Gotta use full air supplied mask, etc.

OH, well that just makes it easy

How about repaints? Do they tie a bunch of sixty foot ladders together?

Yep , thats one section of one .... spun on a huge rotisserie , full suit , supplied air , peel-away lenses peeling every minute or so and a helper pulling your hoses tight through the center. I remember the fumes being so volatil that exiting your soaked suit the wrong way would make you ill. I can see the zinc coating only on the inside of that one......
-im not being emaild responses , is ther an easy way to change that in the user menu or something .?

Welcome @woi2ld!

If you want to subscribe to a thread there's an option to do so under "Additional Options" when you post. That's how I usually follow along.

Welcome World!

I think it's ace that there are a wealth of different painters on this forum.

It sounds like you've done some amazing work; especially the guitar stuff.
