  8. 16lb Foam Questions.

    foams can be fickle. I'm pouring another gallon this week. up here in Canada we pre-warm the mold noe. colder temps,improper expansions.
  9. Making progress

    you are on your way into a great adventure lol...
  10. 16lb Foam Questions.

    hi we use smooth on 15lb foam. .mix well in an atmosphere above 72 degrees. .when poured rotate your mold. foams are gassy remember that. we use a good release,wax based in our aluminum molds. ..toachieve a good finish its about your paint process. .yes it holds screws very well. just cover screw threads with a little epoxy and insert. amazing but fickle stuff till you learn the curve. life cycle of open jugs is short. we pour a gallon in 3 days never had issues. watch for the brown resin to go bad . the clear part holds up. moisture is a killer when left in jugs over time..picture below shows a finished body.

    a beauty right there.
  12. Clear Coat for lacquer painted baits

    yes lacqyuer paints. if you use enamel paint you will have a mess. .remember this. you can put enamel paint over lacquer,,,but never lacquer over enamels.
  13. Clear Coat for lacquer painted baits

    first coat dry at least 1 hour. clear cellulose/laquer will eat/bond to paint. the 2nd coat I would wait till next day to avoid,running of clear or having the clear eat into the paint itself and cause an issue.
  14. Clear Coat for lacquer painted baits

    shine is fine. if you dip second coat let bait dry overnite first.
  15. Epoxies for top coat

    automotive 4t1mix. spray. dries in 4 hours uv protected..you need ventilation/blower system.. ultra clear non yellowing.we do all urethane/foams with it.
