You must have the heater on over there, too cold to get anything to cure in my garage.

Looks good though.

Pinholes, Bondo, and all; that's a nice clean fuse. You do nice work.

I thought that is why you were supose to paint the mold first so the paint will span over the pin holes left from the glass layup?

Would pre-wetting the mold surface before the glass goes in result in less air pockets?

I'd never used bondo before and I had so many pin holes on this fuse I figured I'd just frost the whole thing. What was I thinking . It took about 2+ hours to sand it out.

And I guess a custom painter like yourself would know that kind of stuff?!

I'm lazy. It pays to have a buddy (Dbox) nearby who can hog on some high fill, high end automotive primer to fill in those pesky pinholes.
