Tom, How big is your shop?
Could we get group sessions together or maybe several folks meet at my place and Tom you can come and give instructions / pointers.
Then we can spring for the Pizza & Beer

Hey Tom,
What about Tank Repair?
I have a small dent in tank I'd like to repair also. Can this be done at your shop or would I need to look into getting a new tank?

All weather affects how bodywork and paint products perform. Best thing is to have a controlled environment but, there are additives for weather conditions. I personally can not comment on how well the additives work though. Was told to avoid them and therefore I have.

Well, it sounds real close to "beer and bondage party"...

I know that paint is very picky about the temp. Reducers are made for different ranges (usually about 10-15 degree range for each). I've never done the bondo/fiberglass repair thing so I have no clue about that.

I also paint indoors with the thermostat controlling the temp, so I'm lucky.

Not sure if the beer and bondage party would be gay either... scary maybe but gay? Eh... anyways, common mistake in the cold with bondo and fiberglass is over using the hardener. It works to get the stuff to cure quicker but ends up cracking on you as it warms up outside. Controlled environment is the only way to go.

The 17th sounds good to me.
I would like to have Tom give us a head count on how many people he can accomidate.
From there we can get a tally on how much material we'll need.
Price this material out + money for food / beer + tip to Tom
And Divide this amount by the number of people interested.

Whatcha thionk
