I'm looking forward to that day alsoI am waiting to see your car completed. Such an awesome build. If you decide to make some of the storage bins please let me know. Take my money!
I feel your pain. I hate water leaks more than anything.This weekend was a prime example of "When Shit Happens"
I had an opening this weekend to get the mold made for the front piece. but it was not to be.
Got the part waxed and sprayed with PVA with no issues, but thats the only thing that went per plan.
Next I got the gelcoat sprayed on, While waiting for that to cure a water line decided to let go. So shutting down the water I started repairs.
Got the water line repaired so I went to check to see if the gelcoat was cured enough so I could start laying glass.
The paint started to lift in spots causing the gelcoat to wrinkle and pull away from the part. Never had that happen.
That made the whole part unacceptable to lay glass on.
Well after removing the gelcoat from the part there were sections (of course) that the paint pealed off. so now the whole part needs to get sanded down and a new coat of paint applied.
Could of got a bad batch of resin or not enough hardener was applied or the MEKP was bad. Or it was just to cold outside.Wow, that sounds particularly frustrating. I hate the moments in a project when you realize you need to redo something substantial. I’ve certainly had it happen. (The one that comes to mind is a batch of resin that never set up and that I had to painstakingly scrape back off. What a total mess. Still don’t know what happened with that batch.)
What paint did you use? I’m asking because a few months ago I had a part that didn’t separate from a mold very well and took some of the paint with it (despite appropriate wax and PVA.). I had used a shaker can of standard grey primer. I subsequently read a few posts in other forums that said that primer from a shaker can shouldn’t be used on a buck. I still don’t know what the reality is. I wonder if I just didn’t let the primer cure long enough. (I think it was overnight…maybe 16 hours or so.
