Evercoat for Center Foot Shell

Time to do a first pass of Evercoat for the center foot shell.

Pretty much where every edge meets, there is filling to be done.

Evercoat cures very quickly, which means I glob it on quickly, which means I don't do a very neat and tidy job.

After the Evercoat had completely dried, I went over it with 150 grit sand paper.

Next, I repeated the process with 220 grit sand paper. This did a good job of removing the excess Evercoat, and leaving only what was necessary. It also showed me where I need to make a second pass to fill in some remaining small gaps and pinholes.

Unfortunately, I've had very little time to work on droid #2 recently, and it looks like that will continue to be the situation for most of the month.

Would that work well om styrene? I was going to use bondo, to do the same on my legs and ankles.

Yes, it seems to be holding very well indeed. No problems there.


Dave said...

Cool. Where do you get it?

I bout it locally:

Fountain Valley Paints
11271 Slater Avenue
Fountain Valley, CA

I have been told that auto body shops stock it.

It was around $26.00 per can. Quite pricey, but it sands to a very smooth finish.

I know it's sold online as well. I see Amazon has it at an even more outrageous price of $68.70 per can:

I would have to think/hope you could find it somewhere for much less than that.

I think that's for two tubs, still expensive, but not so bad.

Here's a search on Google that does it available for closer to $25

Oh. Oops, you're right Chris, that Amazon price was for a 2 count, I missed that.

Cool! Thanks guys!
