I've seen lacquer guys grow old and gray and all that happened to 
them was they just got a little bit batty sometimes... hard to 
determine if it was just their personality or the results of 
clearcoated brain cells.

...As I've mentioned a time or three, I've also come aware of several 
paint guys here in town who are gone now, cancer, before they ever 
got a chance to go gray, all with liver issues.    It's enough to 
make a guy go out and buy a space suit.

Urethanes are a lot more treacherous than acrylic lacquers...  so far 
so good, nothing wront wiff me yit... but I still try to remain 
upwind when I spray anything, lacquer included, and I wear those 
silly masks that don't do much except keep paint dust off the nose 
hairs.    Frankly, I'd be a bit nervous about shooting urethanes, 
even if outside with a mask.

I'll remain a lacquer holdout for as long as practical.
