I had to let it book for a full 10 minutes after pasting to let it fully wet-out. If not, it would've bubbled on the wall. Waiting that long, watching the material get softer and weaker always makes me nervous. Also need to use a soft brush with these, or you could easily scratch the finish. I always bring a large assortment of markers and chalk with me when hanging any type or mural.

Rich, if I knew your zipcode, I could probably hook you up with at least 3 good hangers in your area. And when on site for the first time with a new client, I always wear fresh, clean whites, for painting or hanging. Impressions are everything. They see the dirty ones after awhile.

Arrived on site at 9am,

Late night Thursday?:blink:
Nope:

we installed Friday morning.

Oh, gotcha. My brain wasn't working at full capacity yet. The job was in a newly built building, and the code inspector was to be there at 7am to do inspections. The sprinkler controls were directly above the mural wall in the ceiling, so I didn't want to stand around waiting for him to finish, or get in each other's way. So I opted to show up when he would be done and gone. Plus, I knew it would only take a couple hours so it didn't matter to me. I get paid for a full day and then some for these jobs anyways.

Though I know your bustin...

There are four important lessons we can learn here

#1)
Although other painters/hangers may think it's cool to have whites loaded up with ****, one might want to consider one's job is not to impress other painters/hangers
It's to impress the client
#2)
Tim knows his $hit...that's an awesome little install
#3)
Tim has no a$$
#4)
Damn those steaks look good

haha...no a$$ (don't fret...me too!)

at least PWG is a skilled craftsman and knows how to operate his business and how to make it work to his benefit

as far as starting at 9am..That was my starting time pretty much everyday I was in business-
I liked the time, HO's liked the time and I usually packed it up for 4pm
that is one of the best things about the biz...you make it work for you

Hey John..no golfing today?
lol, j/k...crazy weather
