    Right after 9/11, i was watching the clean-up crews

    on the grounds, wearing only paper masks for protection, and i mentioned on this board that they should be wearing dual-cartridge respirators. Those paper masks fall far short of protecting your lungs. i worked in a 55-57 T-Bird restoration shop, along with the painter and the owner. All the work was body-off frame restorations and i did all the mud work and it was 9 months in Purgatory. i also worked in other street rod shops and never did mud or paint work without a dual-cartridge respirator on. my lungs were worth much more than any car i worked on. Now you see guys on television sanding away and sometimes breathing that dust in without any protection. Apparently, they were not fortunate enough to have a Respiratory Therapist/RN for a wife. Some of those workers on 9/11 are now having lung problems and it could easily have been avoided with a 25 dollar respirator....
