Just awesome Pete! Would you be so kind as to show us how you begin before applying feathers? That is, if you haven't already.

Tuffleye Kit from Bear's Den? Phil

Penguin 03-30-2011 12:09 PM

NO regrets and NO going back...
 
IMHO... The Tuffleye Kit would be a solid investment...
the plug-in light [batteries optional] is high quality and ergonomically easy to use...
the accompanying original Core and Finish... good stuff [slightly brittle like epoxy]...
but... an alternative would be the NEW light [mid-30'$], the FLEX, and TOP COAT...
that would have you up and running and readytogo...
or
Bug-Bond Kit with Original Formula, UV Light, and Pro Tips
The Bear's Den has 'em both...
Tell Scott I said G'day!

Thanks Pete. Being impatient, I made a few very slowly using Plasti Dip for our club meeting tonight. Not bad for a start. I'm going to give Scott a call today.
