The dry coats take a couple minutes to go again, as the film thickness builds it takes longer. I took me an hr to do all of this.

The only thing I did to the gun was turn up the fluid for the last coat

Taking the tape off is tricky, the paint cant be wet but not too dry unless you let it dry all the way I wait 10-15 minutes then carfully start to peel the paper, that tells me if the paint will string out or come away clean

So, there's a window between removing the masking tape while it's not too dry, or waiting until the paint completely dry?

Yep if the paint is too wet it will come off with "strings". if you take it off half dry it will leave leave edges that come off the tape then you have to wait till its dry to flick them off

Its the reason I tape a border around the trim. I can pull that stuff off as a test without messing up the trim proper

Assembly is progressing on the Peterson. but there has been a slight delay while Dad and I build a shed in the back yard. I like having dad around but we come to odds in making stuff, he is90 and is of the opinion that everything should be done like it was during the depression. I have to put my foot down and tell him that 2 boards nailed to a stick doesn't make a shed and he tells me Im spending too much for the shed. My money We do this my way

Nice shed by the way! A few years ago I built a new 10X10 shed to store all the Christmas decorations, etc. we had in the attic to make it easier to get to it. I then started using the attic to store kits and other projects. I took the cowards way out and caught one of those precut shed kits on sale. I then added two additional 2X4s to the deck frame and threw the nails away and used decking screws to build it. I also added a roof vent that runs the length of the roof ridge along with a few other improvements. My last shed lasted over 25 years this one should do the same.
