Yeah. I found a channel with a woman. Sounds silly, but as a woman in trades I like to see other women. I kid you not lots of the crews I work with are 90+% males. Which is cool; they’re hilarious and I grew up with brothers. Lol but sometimes Estrogen is good. Haha.

Hi, great video. I’m planning to restore and repaint my car, and I saw a couple of small air compressors for sale at Walmart, I’m not sure which one is the right one to buy. What is the minimal requirement of an air compressor and spray gun for painting a car? Thanks!
