    Guys, this has been brought up before but with all the new shops we have in the last 6 months and the fact that December and January should be slow and we have been swamped as well as the Tech line is sometimes 1 to 4 calls behind from being returned.

    Problem with clear getting hard

    I have never used the production or 5000 except for testing when we make a batch, my test is one coat so don't know. Usually these two clears in a production shops are never applied more than 2 coats so they are getting hard fast. Only thing I can say is a shop did used production on a show...

    Using Kitty or Tiger Hair to Fill/Bridge Cancered Area ??????

    Problem with clear getting hard

    Rule of thumb for each coat of clear you can leave a thumb nail mark for just less than a month. (not true with production clears or low solids) Six coats on a black driven a weekend a month I could finger nail about 5.5 months, the nine coat one was right at 9 months. It means nothing as can...

    Fiberglass pockets

    I have with rare exceptions always used it over the epoxy, if repairing a 62 vette damaged panel I usually apply direct. When I grind out bonding strips I use 2 or 3 coats epoxy first, then VPA.

    Fiberglass pockets

    Wow all the vettes I have done over the years, that looks bad. Personally after heat gun and sanding I would do 2 coats epoxy and next day VPA due to strength. Other option is VPA without epoxy but just not sure with matting showing as never tried that before.

    Rod Radiators

    All the work we do in engine compartments, the last thing I would want is a radiator to have a name on top. Would not think that I'm the only idiot to think this way.

    The last time i was in the shop, I'm guessing 10 years ago, maybe longer and looked at one of the boats being built it was amazing the perfection and detail. The paint work itself is only perfection and nothing less.

    Packing peanuts ban 2019

    All the laws seem to have or most of them a 6 month forgiveness to get rid of what you have in stock, as much as we ship we will be converted in about two weeks easily with the peanuts and not sure how many pre-cut bottom pads we have left but they won't last long.

    Regular Build 2k temps

    60 I would say now "very good idea" for polar to be used, 65 or above only if you need to rush something with the 2K primers. Just watch your pot life if polar is added.
