Audio, now it looks like you are getting somewhere, right?
Are you still doing it in Spies like you said? If so I want to know
the product and process your relative which is the rep is re-
commending for my own knowledge beings I am not greatly
firmilar with Spies as I am with other brands. AQlso let me know if you are getting hooked up on price. If not maybe I can help.
If you can stay at it, it won't be long now. Good luck

Jon,

A person certainly has to have VISION when it comes to these long horendous boat projects! I admire your persistance. Sounds like you're able to see light at the end of the tunnel.

GEO I am going with Gel Coat against a lot of others recommendations. The reason for my decision is this:

1: The booth I thought I was going to be able to use may have been a problem.

2: Cost

3: Prep work before with Spies or Awlgrip would have been more but the Gell is worse afterwords.

Mostly the booth was the issue. So I am going to go with Gel and use a new product with it called Duratech. It is sapposed to make it spray out better and also make it harder when it dries.

Kaama: This project has been a strugle and we did some things that I had no idea I was going to do when I started, but I am glad that I did now. For example filling in the windows.

Jon
