Glad it worked out for you but it was really stupid. Lost a 1/2 brother to a garage fire when I was a kid. (he didn't live at home or anything like that) He had 2nd and 3rd degree burns on 100% of his body. Lived for 3 painful days. Bad thing is that a person can burn from the inside out as they have alraedy inhaled the fumes. Yes, the solids are flammable. The fumes are even more so. BTW, car looks nice!!! Great stainless work!!!!! ohhhh, I almost forgot. Heat lamps work great!!!!

how is turning on the heater after the fumes clear out stupid? if the stuff was that explosive there would be a lot more burned up people.
i know a guy that paints with an oped kerosene flame all the time, he's done it for probably 30 years. small bay in his garage with poor ventilation and he never had a fire.

anyway if everyone would read my post i sat the heater outside the paint booth to heat the air going in. not even close to the fumes so i really dont see the problem.

i post a question asking the effects of propane fumes on paint and everyone automatically figures i am some idiot going to blow my self up. and few want to answer the actual question. just like normal on here.




I hear you, Anytime you mention open flame and paint everyone freaks out.

I've got two overhead gas open flame heaters that have been left on by accident many times with the air full of paint fog and luckly nothing has ever happened except my paint dried.
Usally the naysayers are the ones who have never painted. IMO

Paint job looks good, nice work.

propane heat makes bare metal sweat. your paint job may look great but after some time little blisters will show up where the metat sweated

The way this is stated is BULLSH!T

Actually, a byproduct of propane combustion is water ... humidity So just like moisture forms on a cold beer on a hot day, anything "cooler" than the heated air temperature will cause moisture to form on it. ANYTHING - not just "bare metal". So heating any closed space with a propane heater that doesn't have a heat exchanger and combustion exhaust to the outside is a bad idea.

I posted this question in 2008. I thought it was deleted but I found it again. Everyone told me I was going to blow up. But here I am 14 years later and the paint still looks good on my car. I only run the heater to dry the paint. Not when I am actually spraying paint.

So you actively searched for a 14-year old thread, just so you could tell a bunch of random people (most of which don't even read this site anymore):

"See, I didn't die. I told you so."

I had a neighbor years ago that would heat aerosol paint can's on a kerosene heater in the winter as he said it made the paint flow better. One day he forgot one was warming up and it fricken BLEW BIG TIME!!! It felt like a 4.0 quake in my garage.
The launch pad (heater was destroyed), it blew a hole through the ceiling and roof (never did find the can) Black paint everywhere, and he's walking around with his glasses all crooked and a load in his pants (I think). he became known as ROCKET MAN after that day. Broke 7 windows, 3 mirrors in the house and blew nails out of the sheetrock is a few nearby rooms. Took 3 days for his hearing to return.
A week or so later another buddy stopped by. Rocket man happened to be there. he said hey I heard about the paint deal. RM's like hey dude I've been ridiculed enough. My buddy says no man, I'm with you and do the same thing. RM's like really? the buddy says yeah but you're going about it all wrong. RM asks how's that?
Chuck says you need to use the dryer man, put it on medium heat and fluff for about 5-10 minutes, it'll heat and mix the paint at the same time. In addition if it gets to hot you 'll have secondary containment. LMAO TRUE STORY beer

Well, talking about things blowing-up real good, you ain't seen nothing until you toss a can of R-12 into a fire. Then stand WAAAAAY back. We were cleaning out our shop one afternoon back in the mid-80's & one of the guys lobs a can of R-12 into the dumpster fire we had going. Says on the can it's flammable, so we all stood back, then stood back a little more. After about 20 seconds BOOOOOM! There was a concussion that hit all of us & a small mushroom cloud above the dumpster. There was debris showering down a good 10 seconds after the 'sblosion. The guy who tossed the can in the fire was rolling on the ground laughing so hard, he could not stand. It was IMPRESSIVE to say the least!

I always heat my spray bombs and I always do it in a bucket of hot water. Zero risk.

My garage has a forced air natural gas furnace.
I have a drill press about 15' from, and directly in front of the duct work outlet. I often put spray bombs on top of the drill press to warm up. it I forgot and a can sat there all day, it wouldn't get much higher temp then the surrounding air. That is probably not any higher temp then that spray bomb would see sitting on a shelf in the summer. I don't have a spray booth, painting gets done outside when the temp is between about 50, and 80.
