I will bet though that PD's fancy state of the art shop has a tool to help with spraying that car upside down. I'd think that it would be easier for a short guy like myself.

Your picture was upside down at first but I straightened it out for you.
These guys were having some fun with it.

Matte or flat finishes are enough of a problem as they are without trying to accomplish it upside down.

Thanks for fixing the pic! I was just thinking that the guys were spraying without a respirator again. Actually, the car will be gloss black. The picture was after the owner sanded it with 320 grit and brought it to me.
