Re: New member from Utah

We plan on coming out. Won't bring the Squirt but will bring the latest SUP.

Re: Sun shade on a squirt?

Couldn't you build one out of, say 1/2" elect conduit? You can buy the fittings and bend the tubing to any shape you want. I've never done it, but I think I'd try. I may give it a go on our Squirt next spring when we get back form MX.

Re: Zip r/c model

Can't believe I didn't think of this as I race RC Hydros. Just started cutting out the pieces today and will start the build tomorrow after I get some basswood. Thanks for the idea Vupilot..

Re: Varnish over epoxy

I was just wondering what the epoxy looks like when too much UV gets to it and what we should look for? Does the epoxy begin to turn a darker brown or begin to bubble?

Re: New Builder Building a squirt

Squirt's first bath. SUP, Malco, is done so my wood projects are coming to an end. Eyeballing the rampage for next spring.

Re: Buffing out last coat of varnish

Roberta, do you think I can get by with just the 5000 grit or is the 3000 first needed? And I see there are several different Perfect-It rubbing compounds. Do you remember which one you used?

Re: Buffing out last coat of varnish

Thanks Roberta. I remember a thread where you mentioned your process but I can't remember where I saw it. I'll look for the items you mentioned.

Buffing out last coat of varnish

Do any of you buff out the varnish? I still have some specks in the finish and was thinking buffing it out would work, but I've never buffed out varnish before.

Not planning on it Matt, but we'll see how she turns when I get her in the water. And thanks for the kind words

Re: Varnish over epoxy

I'm using Pettit Z Spar Captain's 1015 and I'm really liking it. I did let the epoxy cure for at least 2 weeks. In the heat we're having the 1015 is dry ib a few hours.
