    TODAY :
    They still leave out the fine print footnote
    29 gallons of high build 2k primer
    NO BODY FILLER

    I’ll tell you though,, I really like a few coats of Eastwood contour before primer starts.

    Has anyone seen a TV show one week build two years after the build? Just wondering how the paint & bodywork looks.

    apparently some do not hold up well
    Im not painting an allover the same week I prime it. Science and chemistry does not change or operate within the time frame we want or tell it to.
    google Overhauling and you will find out

    yep
    the purpose of surface enhancement materials are the same
    lead, plastic, polly, urethane, lacquer, enamel, sheet rock mud, bubble gum, or ramen noodles
    Its purpose is to create an illusion of undamaged or straightness
     
  5. What do you think or suspect it would look like

    I've never used or seen someone else use a booth with an oven, so maybe things are drastically different than I think they would be. Bob

    baking speeds up production
    chemistry is still chemistry
    stacking up products with out proper gas out time will reduce overall quality
    I can spray a new fender or bumper for a new car and install it and deliver it the same say. and not have issues
    its a sealer, color and clear
    high build products and fillers need to gas out
    a slow curing epoxy with a fast curing poly sprayed too soon is a recipe for disaster
