Don't think I need 80 grit. It's smooth as a babies butt. I was more concerned with excessive layer build up. I'm going to scuff seal and paint.

Thx Don

I see guys painting cars with Plast-dip now. I can't wrap my mind around that. I'll bet it covers well, though.... I just sprayed some Commercial Performance Coating ALK and that stuff is thick as molasses and seems to cover very well. Not sure what it would be like painting an entire truck with it though. It's a Urethane paint. I use it for trim items.

CASO, are you talking about 80 grit on a DA sander? Because that is a much more uniform finish than hand sanding metal with 80 grit...

Laos curious why the sealer coat epoxy is reduced instead of just shooting it straight- is that to get it to cure faster, or to simply make the epoxy go a little bit further?

The sealer coat of reduced epoxy will lie down and off gas quicker than straight epoxy.
Epoxy will act like double sided scotch tape for your paint.
Sticks to both better!

On a side note I needed a 17mm wrench and popped onto O'Reillys yesterday.
They had 1on the shelf.
Ran my thumb across the box end and felt a bit of a bump.
The *Chrome plastic dip started coming off in strips.
FYI

Actually this post was ment for all.
Well I purchased my paint from one of the online classic groups. No reducer or hardener was offered. Went to Napa and they matched me up perfectly.

Two and a half days of prep and masking and it's done. Bye bye orange dash. Hello stock color Champagne.

This has been a great learning experience and I'm finding out, I may like body work after all.

Thanks for all the advise

Don

Don,

Some members might appreciate seeing a link to a few photos of your interior. Also, some members might appreciate the seller's name and part number (and a link to the item, if on-line).

Congratulations, and, thanks.
