Priming sub floor and sub firewall components

Well, today I finally got around to priming the miscellaneous parts for the sub floor and firewall sub panel components. I had been procrastinating on this task since priming is a bad enough job in the summer, but the cold weather makes it that much worse. I cleaned the parts in the basement with MEK while the garage heated up, then got them setup for priming.

It actually went fairly well. I probably had the garage up to the mid 80's before I turned the propane heater off. The infrared lamp did a good job of keeping the parts warm and that allowed me to spray multiple coats in fairly quick succession. All in all, not bad and I didn't even blow the garage up. Look at the spray hanging in the air compared to the previous image. :-o
