    Yeah, as you know couldn't really shrink at all. But the reality of it is most of the damage didn't stretch the metal. It dented rather than stretched it. And as I worked the metal when it got to the point where I thought I was going to over stretch....I would stop.

    Metal Re-working...Saving the Patina and Og paint!

    Thank you very much!! You're right, a lot of time is just standing there staring and planning. That job is one that I'm most proud of. And to be clear I've had some people message me thinking I faux-tina painted some areas of the panels. I have not painted or touched anything up with paint.;)

    Epoxy in the sun

    I know Barry has said leaving epoxy out in the sun for at least 4 hours trumps all other drying methods. My question, do we still need to keep heat on it for 24 hours? Also if sun drying speeds everything up, does this also cut down the number of days in the 7 day window?

    Clearcoat Problem: Iso Clumping or Air Entrapment or Solvent Pop?

    I had a similar experience with single stage black. I had an old can of hardener (a couple years old) that was less than half empty. The first coat looked very much like your black parts, it was like I threw sand on the parts. When I cracked open a new can of hardener and shot the remaining...

    sanding off paint

    Yep ☝️. And to add to that, I use a variable speed Makita 4 1/2" grinder. It's nice to have speed control cause certain paints come off better at a lower speed. Here is where I buy mine... http://www.empireabrasives.com/4-1-2-easy-strip-paint-removal-disc/
