    Try a surgeon's glove to spread that goop next time. The same for seam sealers/drip check. And a little bit of lacquer thinner on the finger tip will smooth it down. Yeah, it eats da gloves but tit-for-tat, rat-ta-tat-tat like the cat in the hat you 'b smooth.....
     
  2. That shtuff sands fairly easy.. I will try that lacquer thinner tip next time, Yes indeedy!

  5. Thanks, I thought it was hilarious.. had to do it! I mentioned it to Bill, and he got a good laugh out of it. So thought I would share

    Working on the 57 of Bills.. (our 57 chevy)

    And thank you, kind sir!
     
  6. This made me laugh.. the steel shows through the edge of the steering wheel - on both sides! Great quality control..

    [​IMG]

    Sanding to match the steering wheel to the horn button.. one sides good, the other still needs work!

  9. I hope to have it finished up, today.. sanding wise anyway!
     
  10. That was great. Gave me something to listen to, while I did my 'do' on photobucket!

    Taped off the areas, where I didn't need the everglass attached to.

    I love PC 7, I even love its horrible smell, it works way better than JB Weld.

    I'm actually back on mine, Jay, sanding the driver's quarter panel, I'm close to heavy build primer, I'll spray it tomorrow when the sun's out.

    It feels good to make progress, slacking doesn't do anything.
     
  15. No, Sir.. I'm hoping to stumble upon one, myself! They're out there, they just ain't cheap. Especially on Epay
     
  16. I had the best luck slinging/molding the PC7 at the hour mark, when it was 'starting' to harden. Sands easy enough..

    Glad you're back at it, progress makes me happy!
     
  17. Happy Halloween.. be safe!

    Any progress? - i need a fix of your excellent work
     
  24. Thank you, for that! It's been raining, here. But today was really nice out, so I got the TIG cart 98% finished. Tomorrow, I'm going to help Jim Kitchen, (Stan Back) get ready to run ElMir, this wknd. Track's dry, so that's cool with me!

    Pic is from the May meet, this year..
