Thanks again guys! My flight to L.A. is on tuesday and the Electrolyte plug will be finished just in time
. Today I was able to sneak up to the roof of my apartment building and paint the plug with some krylon red. I figured the roof was the best option for minimizing dust on the wet paint but it was still a compromise. The painted finish still needs a little wet sanding but hopefully the final glossy finish will improve the quality of the mold. In addition the color red was chosen to contrast the black epoxy gel coat when it becomes time to make the mold.
