Question about Garden

Alternative to spraybooth. I don't know where to rent use of a spraybooth and surely can't afford one but I need to spraypaint radiators and cupboard doors. I tried without one and the finish was excellent, except everywhere the dust settled. The best idea I came up with was to buy a cheap 2-man tent, wash it all down and do the spraying in there but it means huffing the fumes or using my only gas cartridge filter and I'm sure there's better ways. How should I do it?

    This is about the same as what I was thinking, though I found someone with a spraybooth now too

For my quick and dirty paint needs, I draped painters plastic over a quick and dirty wooden form, left it hanging loose and and secured the bottom edges with strips of wood laid on top. It works, but won't hold up to anything greater than a light breeze.

Ventilation was supplied by a box fan that had a couple of furnace filters (new filters, btw) taped to the front, the loose plastic was then taped to the fan. Turn the fan on, tent was pressurized, and allowed to vent through gaps around the strips of wood. Worked very well. Perhaps this will give you some ideas to use.

When you rent a dumpster, for how long do you keep it?

As long as you "need" it should be the first answer. Most dumpster companies charge a set delivery fee,,, EX: $385, and then they can either charge a daily fee or weekly, monthly, yearly.
If you are renting it for home/residence refuse removal it may only be that you need it for a week or less. If you're renting it for a business that will use it often and indefinitely, you may have to go through the process of a contract?
I usually rent for a week for my jobs. If I can't dispose of all the refuse in a weeks time, I often don't take the job in the first place after assessing the job. You will get more information in here about roll off dumpster rentals.

1992 mercury grand marquis is over heating, whats the problem

There are many things that can cause your engine to overheat. It could be caused by a bad thermostat, a faulty fan clutch, a defective electric fan motor (if your vehicle is equipped with one), torn/broken hoses, or a bad water pump. It could also be something much more serious like a blown head gasket, intake manifold gasket, or a cracked cylinder head or engine block. It could also be something as simple and easy as an inaccurate temperature sending unit making you "think" the engine is overheating when it actually is not.

In any event, proper diagnostics need to be performed immediately. An overheating engine is nothing to mess around with unless you are very wealthy and can afford to replace an entire engine.

My 2003 olds alero reservoir leaks

Your cooling system needs to be pressure checked to see where the leak is. certain auto parts stores rent out a pressure checker. make sure you have the cooling system full before doing the pressure test. check to see if you have a radiator cap and fill the system that way instead of using the resevoir

Overheating 94 cutlass supreme

after replacing the thermostat and when you refilled th radiator did you make sure you got all the air out of the cooling system? if so my guess would be you got a head gasket problem.In the long run take it to a shop ,have them check it out and giveyou a estimate.

Blown Head gasket/Affordable repair?

The average sale price for a 91 Lexus in the US, is $3900.00. Used radiator would be around $200.00. Machine shop to machine the head (highly recommended) $500.00 to $1000.00. Gaskets and hoses another $200.00. I don’t know how much you have into it, but I hope this helps your decision.
