I am preparing to paint my Bearcat's cowl.. and thought about a way I could do the outside with an even coat. I made a dowel fixture that I could "chuck" in my VSR drill held by a vise.. and lock the trigger on very slow speed. My drill will get down to 10-12 rpm's which will be perfect.

Another method for painting "around" a part.. is to pick up a cheap "Lazy-Susan" and lay a square of wax paper on, to keep it clean. When you have a small make-shift booth set up, it's easier to turn the part being sprayed, than to try to change your spraying angle or move a board; which can be a P.I.A.

Good thinking Roddie.
Regarding the lazy susan, you can pickup the bearing assembly at a
hardware store or the depot for 6 to 8 bucks. With it, you can custom-build
your turntable to suit your needs.
An old kids phonograph might fit the bill too.
