everything steelflex

Express, If you are just going to mix one cup at a time, your drill mounted paint mixer will be overkill. I used some cheap paint measuring cups, I think a quart size from Walmart, and mixed 20-24 ounces at a time.

everything steelflex

Express, I know you probably want to see the color before you BUY it, but if you just want to check before you APPLY it, you can do that. You mix in the color with one part BEFORE you mix in the clear hardener, so you don't have to be in a hurry while adding tint. You could just add a little tint at...

Does this stuff set up that fast or is it that hard to mix? (viscosity) 2.What's the most recommended amount to mix? I...

(go figure) I have a Ruger SP101 stainless with a bobbed hammer in .357, and you won't want to fire a whole box at the rang...

How to - fish pics

If you really want your fish to look bigger.... BaitCaster's photo with the arm straight out does make the fish look larger, but it is obvious that he is trying to make it look larger, so people automatically figure the fish isn't that big. The secret is perspective, right? You want the fish closer ...

My New 1448 Flat Bottom Project.

Heavier grit cannot hurt, since the steelflex is so thick, but I think 80 grit is plenty rough. Then again, I'm not an expert, just a one-boat user.

Soft water season is about over, now what?

Another season just about over. Time to do the boat repairs, mods, upgrades I decided on while out fishing this year. Time to get the motor in tip top shape. Time to learn more about my GPS, Fishfinder, and research log books, etc. What are your plans to get ready for next season? Season?! Quit fis...

everything steelflex

So are there any tricks to applying it around the ribs, top rail, etc? It's like spreading honey. For the tight spots, I used cheap paintbrushes. You want stiff, short bristles. I kept tweezers handy for the occasional hair that comes out of the brush and sticks in the steelflex. Apply it too thick...

Thanks for the info Troutman and Henry. I definately plan to steelflex the outside of the hull after going over the reivets and seams to make sure there aren't any issues. Just about every bit of the interior will be covered by either flooring, decking, or some sort of storage compartments. In my s...
