The thing is if you do the work and get all surfaces 100% perfect, then you certainly feel the difference as soon as you start to pick up speed, silky smooth all the way up to the wings maximum speed, and using a speed watch shows this very well
what would you advise for the whole mast with pinholes? moses 111Foil wrote: ↑Fri Nov 08, 2019 8:46 amyes, the red pin hole filler is not durable and if used for scratches is quite rubbish, great for pin holes though.deniska wrote: ↑Fri Nov 08, 2019 2:32 amGood info,
thanks Foil and others...
I tried the red glazing compound in Delta's videos - it works, but a bit messy, for my taste..
For small scratches I would love to get something that I can spray on and then polish..
Also lacquer seemed like more solid finish, comparing to the red acrylic stuff that you can scratch with a finger, literally.. and being clear and not bright red is also a big plus in my book.. The delta guy never mentioned coating the "red" with something else...just curious if anyone has some other recipes...
fine scratches, sand scuffs, can be covered easily using the acrylic matt paint above, that works just great, this stuff is so good for that.
for deeper shell and stone scratches, then using one of the many fast setting epoxy fillers work well, again using a old store card to smear a very fine layer over the scratch and finish with hard sponge and wet paper, any air holes in the epoxy need a re visit.
the pin holes in the carbon do not cover well at all using paint or 2 part epoxy, don't know why, maybe epoxy just will not sink into the tiny little holes and the air inside them little holes warms up and blows out through the epoxy, i have found only the glass finishing putty works for this, and as recommended above hiding the red dots with felt tip marker works a treat.
JB marine epoxy works great but takes well over 18hrs to cure in a warm room, a right pain if you need the wing the same day. like when on holiday.
Steve recently found this fast setting epoxy for our holidays starting tomorrow, hope we don't need it
