We need a wireless doorbell with 2 push buttons and two chime/bells whereas either button will ring both chimes/bells.

If possible the ability to download my choice of sound such as a Caxton horn would be nice.
Thanks
Francis

i did this myself right where it sits. i took off the bumpers fenders hood and deck lid off. sanded them down primed it, base coat and clear coated. and this was my first time painting anything and i think it came out pretty good. its not perfect there are a few flaws here and there but over at its good. better than the two tone faded original paint it had. it was over all pretty easy

I have a pair of 110VAC fire alarm klaxons that I was thinking of putting on my Fiero and powering with an inverter.
I think that might get noticed better than the road runner 'beep beep' horns it came with...

I found an epoxy product by JB Weld for plastic body panels, eight tenths of an ounce for six bucks.
I have tried it on a door panel and it is very nice, now I need to see how it works on the hood.
The nice part, I found it at Meijers in the automotive paint section!

Lol I thought I sent that doorbell question elsewhere not to PFF?
BTW, we found what we needed and it works great.

What I wanted to say here was, with dust and bugs being a huge PIA, I'm in the process of making a paint booth that I can take apart and store, pictures to come soon.

Here is my roller job. It's held up well since i did it in 2010, still shiny. I used industrial paint, basically outdoor tractor paint ("safety red") so I imagine it is designed to hold up to the elements pretty well. An added perk is easy touch ups if the paint gets dinged or chipped. The only thing that it's really vulnerable to is chemical damage - it's not very resistant to gasoline or other solvents.

I think roller paint is much more durable than rattle can paint...but it all depends what you are going for. It's NOT a professional paint job, but it looks 1000% better than a flaking and faded paint job. It's not obvious its a roller job and people don't really believe how I did it. Some people don't want to spend $500-1000 to spray their cars with professional paint and/or don't have the location to do so.

So how does that work with the base and clear premixed? I spray the base and then clear over it...

Its premixed, meaning the primer, base color and clear is already reduced and ready to spray out of the can. No mixing involved for a novice. I wish they made a paint that had primer, color and clear mixed in one can. Now if you paint acrylic enamel, yes, the color and clear are mixed together already. You just reduce it and spray.
