I have just started using etex also. For the drying wheel I left the baits (bass size) on for about 5 hours and then just hung them up to cure completely. I did not have any problems with the stuff running but it may be different for bigger baits. On coats I am not sure but it sounds like a lot of the guys use two or three for a top coat.

I believe this was a recent discussion somewhere. I think some use the Dick nites dip method on some of the prefab baits. I would think a thin coat or 2 would work well enough. Depends what your fishing for maybe though. I am new myself but maybe someone else could chime in on this.

In my experience repainting cranks, one coat of Etex is fine for plastic lures, because they are so hard.
For wood lures, I'd do at least two coats.

I tried the E-tex after using D2t for a long time. I went back to the D2T because it was so much more managable. I am using some Dick Nite now and I will give it a chance to beat the D2T. I have a pint of DN and some Bloxygen. Hopefully I don't lose it suddenly.:mad:
