That is a rather comprehensive ask...

It sounds like you need to hire someone like me for a few months. Unfortunately I am not currently available.

That is basically a complete shop rebuild from the ground up. Changing culture in a spray room environment can be very difficult, where "that's the way we've always done it" prevails.

I've built up a few shops (working on one now) and starting from scratch is easier than trying to change. But, it can be done. It really depends on your operators more than anything else. They have to want to change. If they don't, it's a long hard road.

Available for consultation services- please send a PM
