Quick question. Is it ok to see the paper through the mud? I know the drywall is paper also and you paint that but is it ok with the tape? Reason is even after using a setting tool to install the no coat 325 I still see paper in place and after sanding will def hit paper on the corners.

If it is a "no coat" corner, you will see some paper.
Ok cool. I just couldn't see it possible to even install it how they say without seeing paper.

The idea with No-Coat is to hit the edge and feather away from the corner. No compound/spackle/mud on the paper towards the corner.

I quit using No-Coat when I got the BTE corner taping set.

yup your doing fine, with no coat you should see the paper but no dimpled paper
tack a nail on each side of the bottom ..So chords and hoses won't pop her loose. :thumbsup:



If you ever get a job close to Lynchburg BC ..call me. It would be cool to meet you. I may have a few homes coming up in New London this winter . I live in Buckingham county ,,but Appomattox /Campbell keep me pretty busy . crazy busy right now !!!
Off topic, but when you said New London, is that the one in Pennsylvania?

Edit: after looking at a map, I assume it's not. Carry on, gents.

I don't normally get out that far. Normally only 10 miles out at most from home normally. If I do ever get that way I will give you a shout though.
