Duh, that's easy. Whatever color paint you already own. If you have to buy paint, get your own color. Red, white, blue and yellow are already taken. Go green or black. Primer gray is an optional substitute.

I have to remove the plasma unit, and then remove all the hoses, and then either get on my hands and knees to make adjustments to the wire roll or polarity, or I have to pull the entire machine out in the floor. Then I have to put it all back before continuing, or just trip over the welder sitting in the floor until I get whatever task completed.
Dub, fess up and tell me the truth, you worked for GM in the mid to late 80's didn't cha!.....You personally designed the door locks and latches didn't cha!! Come on.....tell the truth!!!!!!
God, if you would grant me one request through Prayer, please help me be the Man my Dog thinks I am. Please.

Quoting "The Hunt". "A man will walk into hell with both eyes and arms wide open. His dog will know better."

I never thought I'd live long enough to become a grumpy old bastard. Here I am, killing it!

Ouch, your response is a little harsh don't you think? People usually have to get to know me better before they talk to me like that! I'll have you know, I have no curtains in my garage. Well, there is a mini-blind on the one window but that is in the garage attached to the house. I don't even have any windows down in the shop so curtains are not an issue.

Just in case some people missed my admittedly poor attempt at humor in the original post, I was kidding. I assure you I am a manly man, although I do have a tender side I admit. Never-the-less, I will damn well weld, cut, bend, or beat metal with whatever brand or color (NOT "colour") of equipment I feel like, or whatever I can actually lay hands on that is not broke or would take to much time to find/fix at the time. glurg is onto something about matching colors though, my cart material is currently battleship grey, it should match the cinder block walls of the shop!
