  2. Paint and Fiberglass Repair
    I am about ready to glass in one of my new stringers in my 21' daycruiser. The stringers are just over 16 ft. I am using 635 thin epoxy from us composites along with two layers of 1708 w/ no mat. I'm using LVL lumber (they will be covered by a floor) planed to about 1.5" - I have since rounded...

    I want to remove my bent v-drive strut. I used marine tech when I installed it this spring. (it was'nt bent then) Is there a preferred method to help release the bond? I am worried about damage to the hull. Thanks
  5. Paint and Fiberglass Repair
    So im spending some much needed time on the 58 Mandella. The original plan was to just refinish the deck. Which I sanded to bare wood and varnished with interlux Gold Spar clear. After doing that the flaws in the gelcoat on the hull started to more apparent. So on goes the work.:54: I am new...

  8. Paint and Fiberglass Repair
    I have a question about epoxy and Gel coat. I am going to be building a Stand up paddle board and want to build it out of epoxy, but am worried about gel coating over epoxy. Some have said to use Duratec Primer, but that is a poyester based material? I am sure it works but just want to make...

I have used epoxy and still no luck, it seals until i make a run and it blows right off. Does anyone have a solution ? This is the part of the actual jet where it meets...
  10. GN7 On the Dyno
    What epoxy or other product are you guys using for aluminum head or intake repairs? I have an Edelbrock tunnel ram that needs all the runners filled about .060" or less x about 2" on 1-3 sides depending on the runner to match up with some AFR 305s. I'm afraid that much welding will warp the heck...

    picked up a 4 bolt main block that was a give away awhile back, the block is o-ringed, 60 over right now and in need of a bore. It is currently being used to mock up my rail mount setup. I have not paid that much attention to it till now. When I looked inside the water jackets tonight I saw...

  13. Paint and Fiberglass Repair
    So before i install the new jet and motor i wanted to finish up the bilge area... Im being told bilge coat is an epoxy based paint. With it being $50 a quart i had an idea... What about the epoxy based paint used on garage floors?? Its much cheaper and im guessing possibly close to the same...
  14. Jet Boats

  15. Paint and Fiberglass Repair
    I was wondering if you guys could tell me the difference (if any) between Marine Tex and Sea Goin Epoxy? If there is a difference which one would you use to fill a void on the bottom of the boat?
  16. Jet Boats
    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.
  17. PB Open Water
    Anyone here have their garage floors done. Which brand did you use? Easy? hard? any experiences... So many brands out there...Looking to do mine myself.
  18. PB Open Water
    Couple questions: 1. Anyone know anyone who installs these in SFV/SCV? 2. Has anyone done it themselves? Hard? Easy? 3. Anyone seen the metallic flakes they use now? I had it in my old garage and loved it. Got a smokin' deal on a floor that turned out great, but I lost the guys card.
  19. PB Open Water
    Not sure which tech section to post this in so I will put it here. Is there a specific type of epoxy I can use to bond a stainless neck to a polypropolene tank that will stand up to gasoline?
  20. PB Open Water
    I have always wanted to do it but have seen too many failed applications. Quikrete is a pretty big name in concrete products so I was thinking maybe I'd try it. has anyone here used this particular product and what kind of results, ease of doing etc. ??? Thanks. NSF
