    Default Epoxy

    So i'm trying to clean up my intake, getting off the old epoxy is a bitch... any of you guys have any tricks? So far whats been working best for me is a air hammer and then hitting the small stuff with wire wheel.

    add a little heat to it with a propane torch. I prefer the 2 inch 36 grit sanding disk on a right angle die grinder.

    Check these out!, Work bitchen...Warm it up a little with a heat gun or Turbo torch (propane) and hit it with one of these (clean in about 20 min.)

    I use a 4 inch angle grinder with an 80 grit disc on it. Takes a few minutes and as long as you are careful you wont have any trouble

    Oh, that one wasn't going in the WindWalker ... that one was for a different project ... I think I've done 3-4 of these like this?

    It's not that bad when you do most of the prep work yourself.

    And yes, the new MPD intake is bad ass

    I got it all cleaned up, was a bitch tool probably 30-40 minutes, that epoxy was really on there and was thick all the way around and chunky where it broke loose from the hull. I used a angle gringer with a 2-3" sanding disc.

    One thing that sucks, when moving the intake i dropped the thing and chipped off a small chunk of the front left corner, the bolt hole is still there is just has a small opening now.. Errr... maybe when jack is welding up my fins he can fill that back in.
