I use reducer to get the clear coat to flash quicker if needed. I found that fog intercoats only produced rough bubbly layers of clear. I will try again with less reducer as the clear dries practically on contact. I actually sprayed the clear in heavy and had no problems. There are slight imperfections but nothing major. The part is comparable to a new Opus. Once I start cutting on it that may change.

Very slick Joe, I'm anxious to see the next one go together, I want to see what's inside and the process. Actually it doesn't have to be the next one but I hope you'll share at some point.

Just curious, what happened with the "Golf" thing? I figured it was like that first girlfriend you get after a divorce..so you went out and did a whole bunch of grudge golfing?

Really glad to see the commitment is back with DS.

Was it a par 3 or 4 hole? I got one once on a par 3 when I was about 9 years old.

if it was a par 4 or better, maybe you should go in some of those driving contest?

I can carry 350yds. (on the fly) with my driver. A 400yd drive is within my range. I have made the green in one on short par 4's many times.
