    From another forum I am on, the guys helping me learn body work....

    NOHOME said:
    Coarse makes flat, fine makes shine,

    150 till you are flat.

    I repeated this in my head a couple times, and grabbed the 150 after posting that. It definitely cuts it flat quicker. This stuff is sanding out pretty nicely.




    Started the rounded soft sanders on the curves. They work pretty nicely. Blew through tto bare metal again though. Think I should hit them wiht the pink stuff or just epoxy over?







    Curves on the hood ridges looking goo. Need a bit more blocking on the flats.







    Initial scuff going most of the way down.

    Man a 30" block is a quick reminder how NOt flat it really is.... It really does turn gray when its sanded flat. It just really does not show up in the pics.

    The hood and this fender are not too bad.



    You can kinda see the highs and lows here.



    But the hood blocked out pretty well!



    Front of this fender, not great.



    Adn door made me immediately sad. I quit for the night. The pink really washes the pics out.... Its not great.





    This was all 220, I amy call SPI and see what they think about the epoxy sticking well to 220. Its not very toothy. I may drop to 180.

    Nothing like a 30" sanding block to remind you it's not flat.....

    That's perfect!

    They should call this spray able filler. Not high build primer. I started off with literally breaking a stir stick off trying to stir it. A drill mixer on low would have been real nice.

    I sprayed 7 quarts. 2 coats everywhere. A 3rd light one on doors/fenders/hood/quarters.

    You really need a 2.4 or bigger tip. It was HARD to get it on wet. 3-4" away moving slow and 50% overlap at least. My shoulders hurt.

    I need to figure out how to do this roof. Even with a step ladder I can't really reach the middle well.


    t's pretty decent. I can see a couple spots, but you have to know where I had trouble.

    Except the wheel wells. They are still bad....



    Lots of pin holes. Lots of runs.









    Did I mention orange peel?


    EDIT: the big ass copper thing was not any warmer than ambient from my hand feeling it, after 2 hours of continuous running basically.

    High build day! It's been baking in the garage for a couple days. Nice and warm and dry.

    I'd love to have some copper cooling to get rid of some water (my water separators only seem to work so well), and I don't have room on a wall anywhere to run a "wall of copper pipes" up and down up and down.

    Would love to know how well that works.
    It's not actually for air cooling..... It's a drain heat recovery pipe. It's a power pipe brand

    I would think you would get better flow by pulling it out and using a shutoff and a tee with one side going to the QD and one to the reel.
    If thats going to be used for aint, I would probbaly also throw in a drop leg just to see if you get anything.

    Probably would flow better wo/ it.... Always had one there so I put one back... And paint is a bigger hose off the reg/filter. That's just for tires, tools etc
