I would love to sit and watch you work for a few days. Just sit in the corner of your shop and observe. What an education that would be.

Getting back to the ducktail today. I have coated the outside and inside of the tail with three coats of resin making sure that I have fully coated the grooved stress lines. After getting the frame back from media blasting, two coats of POR-15 on the backside will make sure rust stays away for good. Three layers of fiberglass cloth over the missing edge. Take note that the resin must be blocks with 80 grit. The blocking assures the panel stays flat. Resin has a tendency to drip and leave high spots. BTW fiberglass is a real pain in the rear to work with..

Once the frame is completely dry, I start fitting the metal frame back on the ducktail. Before setting the frame, this is a good chance to hammer any dings or dents. You want to make sure that the frame fits snug to the ducktail. It's important to sink the metal edges of the metal frame down into the tail 1/4 grove edge that I left when cutting out the frame. I added shortstrand fiberglass to the backside of the frame so it glues tightly to the ducktail. Once the backside is dry, two layers of cloth fiberglass pieces were placed on top of the 1/4 inch edge and sides of metal frame. The cloth assures there is no loose spots and adds reinforcement. I grinded the fiberglass cloth down and then added a coat over the top of shortstrand fiberglass. Once the shortstrand glass is dry, grind down until you start to see the original fiberglass edge of the ducktail. If you go to far down you will start biting into the ducktail. To repair the missing chunk of the tail lower edge, I simply added three coats of fiberglass cloth to the backside and then added shortstrand fiberglass to the front side and sanded with 80 grit. I just probably confused you all. This tail will look cherry! Tomorrow I will finish up the backside and get all the details!

Glad to announce the RS Ducktail is ready for final sanding and Lime Green next week. I blocked the entire tail with 150 grit and then 180 making sure all the edges and rolls are even. Final primer will be sanded with 320 sealed and then top coated...

So, at this point your what 2.5 - 2.75 hours into the 4 hours? It wasn't so much a question of the tail's condition, he just had the highest admiration for your ability and efficiency of restoration. It was kind of a back handed compliment

Fasteddie- I start at 8 and close at 5 or when I get tired. Call before you come by. Looking forward to meeting you.

Luke, you have great epignosis. It's a Greek work meaning "great insight" : )

In your 101 series, you block with 220, prime, block with 400 then top coat. Is the difference because you are working on fiber glass instead of steel or ??????

Hey Glen, in my 101 series I was working with two stage paint process which calls for finer grit paper before top coat. The ducktail will be going single stage which is more forgiving when it comes to sand scratches. I still use a sealer with all my single stages so there are zero sand scratches.

Cool!! Then by following your 101 series for the blocking will be more than enough for the Glasurit 22 line I'll be shooting. Thanks for the additional education.
