Re: Fiberglass DINOSOUR


Get ready.

Sand the beast with 220 and shoot Sandie epoxy primer. Sand again and use AwlGrip, Imron, Sunfire or Signature.

Scratches will show and you need to be down to at least 600# before final shot.

IMHO, AwlGrip is a PITA and cant be patched. I can shoot the rest and I'm far from a pro. Signature is SW Sunfire premixed for brush or spray application.

I cant really shoot it cause its inside in a stationary place. there will be to much overspray. It will have to be rolled and brushed.

If you know how to roll and tip, you can get a finish that is close to a spray job.

Go ahead God, you can take me, cause now I've heard it all, I just never thought I'd hear an advice request for painting a Dinosaur.
