John is usually pretty responsive. You've tried PMing him directly, I assume?

Need to build a paint booth, count me in.



I am planning on using foam board, and mirrored acrylic, for the sides and back. Just wrapped the mirrored parts in plastic wrap and pull it off, when they get dirty.

If youve lost the will to build what you love, the thing that always works for me is to do something youve not done before. Build an aircraft, or a ship, or something Sci-fi or whatever youre unfamiliar with. Doing a little looking around on different venues gets my mind back in gear for a bizarre or one off project. Thats how I started building armor since Id built aircraft most of my life. I never expected to build more than 1-2 armor pieces but it was almost 5 years before I built another plane...

Seems like there is always just a select few of us that take past in the tool campaigns. Oh well, I guess the rest don't know what they are missing. Not sure what I will build yet. I have a list of ideas, nothing as fancy as the rest of you, but still.....


Thanks,
Randy

Im hoping there will be a little more interest than just a us few... The last build a tool campaign suggestion didnt go off due to lack of participation.
