Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

Well what I thought was gonna be high build day turned into another day of epoxy...once I got it all back in the shop and got a light close to it, the epoxy had a leathery look to it...I tried red scotchbrite and 180g and it wouldnt cut it..so it hit it with 80g again...so I sprayed 2 more coats of epoxy on it...supposed to storm tonite and sun...maybe mon I can get the high build on it....
I dont know why I'm getting that leather look in the epoxy...its done that before but I dont know what I'm doing wrong...I made sure everthing was tight...the net said it happens from air getting in the fluid chamber thru loose fittings..

Got front and rear fenders in high build today...no pics cause they look just like the epoxy color...more sanding coming...hopefully I wont need to shoot them again with primer...fingers crossed..
