Wear a GOOD respirator and cover ALL your skin. I mean it. Some nasty shit in that paint and I woke up in the emergency room a few times because I didn't respect it.
I sold the refinishing business as the last time I woke up in the emergency room the doc told me the next time I'd be waking up in the morgue.
Glad you mentioned the respirator. Don't, just to emphasize grifscoots point, did I say don't, paint, primer, clear coat or not, or sand (well use a particulate mask for sanding) without a good respirator.
