Search on the NETT for its TDS.

As for cables I'm going with MOGAMI® - Bulk Cables

The Bumper Texture is, or was, made by K&H, which have been taken over by 3M, it is very hard to find any data on the product & it doesn't show up in the 3M K&H Product list, I had some info on in but now I cannot find it. The info I had indicated you couldn't use 2K finishes over it hence the Acrylic Lacquer.

I'm a bit lost by what you mean with "Search on the NETT for its TDS."

At about 11:45pm while I was trying to get to sleep the words "Technical Data sheet" popped into my head

This is the product, your previous advice would still stand with this product as well.

I don't think it's ever going to end!

I had just finished spraying the texture coat on the base boxes when I found a blob of something on one of the sides that was still wet, and of course it wasn't on the bottom. Initially I managed to get get most of it off, but when I tried to get that last little bit off, it turned into the disaster you see in the photo. There's always tomorrow I guess, I was hoping to spray the topcoat tomorrow.

Its a prick when something like that happens .What was it a peice of unmixed product in the paint .

What you really need to do is strain it through a filter into another container then pour it back into the can to remove contaminants .

I roll masking tape back on itself to make it double sided and press lightly on the foreign particle to remove it . But you need to do this while the paints wet .


Looking really nice David .

Cheers

I'm not sure what it was, it was too large to have come out of the gun & it wasn't wriggling so it wasn't a bug, it was just a piece of bad luck

I did the respray today & am happy to report all went well.



Originally I was going to spray the colour coat on all surfaces but have decided to only coat the outside of the large boxes as that is all you will see once the grill covers go on.


Getting a good coat inside the boxes is a real challenge.

Default Denibbing

While I was at the auto shop buying the paint I saw this De-nibbing tool & sanding pads 3M? Perfect-It? Denibbing System - YouTube, great idea but a bit expensive so I made my own which I will use in my Dremel.

I used an old dremel bit, Araldited on a Western Red Cedar disc, which was cut using a sharpened piece of SS curtain rod, I then sanded the disc so it was perfectly round, coated the end of the in Araldite, stuck on a piece of self adhesive hook & loop, cut a disc of P1500 grit hook & loop paper & $350.00 was saved, the $350.00 doesn't include the pad larger disc sander in the clip.

Cool , how about the foam between the sand paper and the arb .Have you used it yet ,make sure it doesn't run off across the job with something hard like the red cedar as a cushion.

Theres some great little tools out there .

Hmm, maybe there is a design change in the offing, I probably have a bit of foam somewhere.
The Velcro does add a little bit of give, I have tested it but not on the actual finish, I was thinking of making an even smaller one, there is a couple of minor dirt flecks that I could sand out before the finish coats.
