i tried to convince the customer to go that route. He was worried about potential changes down the road which powdercoating really rules out. Let me tell you it was a marathon shoot. almost 6 hours to shoot the whole thing.

Makes sense I guess.

While I have you on the line, I figure you might have insight on a product that would, on the surface, appeal to us home painters. I am a fan of Evercoat's Featherfill, but hate that it can't be applied to bare metal. Do you have any experience with their new product that CAN be applied DTM?

In reply to NOHOME : that's exactly what we used. Pounded on really nice. Only thing we would have done different is use a different tip on our hvlp gun. It sanded almost exactly like feather fill.

We let it sit for almost two weeks to let it cure

another primer laid down. This round will be 220 and 320 grit sand before the final prime and 400. Two little spots I'm unhappy with. It's coming.
