And more sanding and filling and…

Did a second pass with the finishing glaze and sanded again. Filled the smaller stuff and scratches with spot putty.

Tomorrow I’ll sand it all smooth and primer it. The rest of the day will be spent preening and making the sharp saucer edge even.

Next? Let build the bridge.

More tomorrow,

Still more sanding and filling and sanding and…

How about some more filling and sanding? Well you’re going to see plenty and I look like I’ve been in a sand storm. But the bottom of the saucer is coming along nicely. Got the raw fiber glass sanded down and those thick rubber sanding blocks are a must! They give you the power to sand it down quickly without a visit to the hospital. They are flat on one side and round on the other. Life saving.

Got a nice coat of Evercoat on the surface and rough sanded it down. That powered stuff you see is the dust I have blasted off yet. But you can see it’s shaping up. I’ve used 33 dollars of Evercoat on this side but if I had used Bondo my arm would be falling off by now.

I’m hoping to get it nearly all pointed up tonight.

We’ll see…

Steve
