and have problems, I see you are not in that category. A little bit of MEK can really help flow too, but I wouldn't reduce at all for coating a water tank. I'm sure it'll work out great for you.
Agreed. I was once involved in an electric race
, at a local highschool. We took out the rear window and replaced it with a light wood fairing and a piece of lexan
. I did the epoxy
work and sculpting. That shop was brutally cold for some reason, so that the epoxy
wouldn't kick in less than a couple of days. We ended up pinching the coffee pot from the staff lounge and I kept my gallon can in there with it set on low. Worked a treat.
This winter I'm going to be grinding and epoxy coating the insides of Sabre
Dance. Given its going to be dead winter and she is steel
I'm thinking about putting an electric
blanket hung on lines from the toe rail against the outside skin where I'm going to put the epoxy.
