Also, it doesn't kill you if you breathe it.
Iíve watched his past few posts as well as a few others. Some of his techniques I like . But I go a separate way then him on his using a DA for almost everything. I understand his point about speed but sometimes things just take time.
At this point what I have come up with is a combination of my older skills and the use of some of the newer types of materials.
I think that in this one Iím going to be skim coating the entire car( which is a first for me) but doing a lot more block sanding the Chad does.
Iím also going to be using the 2 part primer vs my old stand by lacquer based stuff.
Of course I have to get to that point first.😜
