No wait, i think i see a Clarke compressor in the reflection.

Quick tip, warm the paint before doing the topcoat as it will spray smoother.

Is that a GSI ? ( Glad you took my advice ) - the reason I ask is that wheels look like they are from the Sport....

yeah you get condensation from the pressure drop too. Shouldnt you spray in a warm room too for the same reason?

Yup, you got it.

He has a small fan heater so i'm guessing he's using it to warm the garage.
