So i scuffed, painted with OHW, and dipped. It turned out good other then the square area where client modified and installed wood. The wood is like the stuff you mount to a wall and it has holes for mounting your tools on (peg board). So after sitting for a day I goto clear coat and the area around the edge of the peg board starts cracking and lifting. Do I need to seal with Helmsman or some kind of AP?




Scuffed down again to show wood

    I would seal the wood for sure with multiple layers.

    AP is ONLY for plastic. It does ABSOLUTELY NOTHING for wood, metal or glass. And yes, you should have sealed it.

    You're absolutely right. Yeah I will bring this up with customer. A lot more work then anticipated, but I will make sure it is done right. Thanks guys.

    Merry Christmas.

    So basically customer said do what ya can, I won't be held accountable if it de-laminates because he made the modification and might be changing in future. So since I re-sanded part, I thought I would try some sealer but could only find this. Think it will work as well as Helmsman?


    I'm going to try on test peice first.

    Its always fun to experiment, just keep VERY good notes on what you are doing. And test, test, test when you are done... and then post up the results here.
