  1. Thanks for the tips. I am a novice and have been to Home Depot and Lowes and they have NO idea how to paint aluminum. Good video, very thorough and most helpful. Thanks for taking the time to make it !

  2. Well, good question.  However, if you heard me in the video I said it was very cool and about 50 degrees. Therefore I was not worried about fallout and the post came out very very smooth and the customer was very happy. In those cool temps you do not have the problem as the coating stays wet and the fallout stays wet for quite some time.

  3. Chris why do you spray starting low doing the posts and then go up to the beam, meaning the spray falling down creating “rough spots”

  4. Good question. I told the customer I would not warranty the top.  To much risk due to the extreme weather here and you will never see the top. Customer said they did not want the top done.
