Hi all,
    I'm looking for some input on the effectiveness of those little infrared
heaters that sit on top of a propane tank. My intended use is in one of
those portable tarp garages to keep me warm and also to warm up the small
sports car that I am stripping and hopefully painting this winter. What I
want to be able to do is get the car warm enough (50+ degrees) to shoot the
first layer of primer on it when the temperature outside is 20 to 30
Of course the heater will be off when I am actually shooting paint but the
intentended process is:
Prep surface for painting, which includes prepping it to rust immediately.
Let car sit overnight and get very cold.
Start heating the car the the next morning.
Shoot primer that afternoon.
The good thing is I'm located in Colorado where we have negative humidity in
the winter, but it can get very cold at night. Here is a link to the type of
heater I'm thinking about:
