    Re: My First Scratch build

    Here's a little tip for you guys that use Rattle Cans. How often do you find the pressure dying down before the can is even empty.(usually its still half full) but then it starts to spit and spatter and sprays a very grainy finish. Well No More! lol

    Just attach a line to the nozzle and fill with your air compressor. I take it up to 100psi (to afraid to go any higher )

    Another tip is submerge the can(new or used) in hot water for 10 min. You won't believe how well the spray atomizes and how smooth the paint lays down . Don't use Boiling water !!!

    Wow, I never thought about re pressurizing the can before! I've always done the hot water trick though.
    Good tip man

    Re: My First Scratch build

    Just a little update guys.. I'm sorry I haven't been posting much lately. Family comes first, and my inlaws are moving in. This means my entire work shop in the basement has been moved into my workshop in the garage(yes I had two shops ) I need to work hard at finding places for everything and getting it all organized cause at the moment I can barely move sideways around everything. After that I think I will be putting my flying on hold and concentrating on the WetJet full time. I REALLY want to maiden a plane this winter!! and I want to have kits available soon after.

    To those who are waiting for kit...thanks for your patience and understanding!

    Trevor

    Ohh BTW... if your interested in buying a solid oak bar.. send me a pm. its 140" long 51" deep and 44" high. Comes with a dual sink and the mirror.

    Re: My First Scratch build

    So I'm seeing a pattern... I pick up part to work on... Mother in Law walks in because she needs something fixed Repeat! over and over

    So I didn't like the way the foam was working out on the elevator tip so I cut it off and used Balsa this time. Much better! Now a couple coats of epoxy and I don't have to worry if I sand threw. Easier to fix than foam.
