Re: Restoration of old Pepsi Cooler

Most paint suppliers have the most recent Pepsi color codes but I doubt they would have the one from that vintage. I do know that the current Pepsi blue is darker than the earlier ones.

Re: Water hose reel

I have 3 hose carts like this one that I bought from Lowes. Solid, stable and easily repairable. Powder-coated to minimize rust. Normally about $90 but frequently on sale. Nice units...:thumbup:

Re: Paint, powdercoat or Line-X?

Which coating would provide the best UV protection? I know Line-X has an optional second coating that is specifically made for UV protection but I don't know how effective it is.

Re: Floor Color

Opinion on air hose?

I need to replace some of my old (like really old) 3/8" air hoses. I need something that is durable and won't coil back. What is the best choice available? :dunno:

Re: Lighter or Darker floor?

I think a lighter color floor reflects light much better, shows dust and dirt a little less and makes finding dropped small parts much easier to find. Mine is white and I love it.

Re: Ceiling fan in the garage??

I have one in my shop that runs 24/7. Seems to reduce the time the furnace or AC runs. Having the air moving all the time also keeps everything dryer to reduce rust on tools and "projects".
