You guys are toooo funny.
Tim,
See, we knew that if you put your mind to it, that you would do just fine. Now you just need to post the pics so we can see.
Have a great day all,
Frank

Okay, so if you walk into Terry's bathroom in the toy hauler,,,,, there wouldn't be a sign that says "This shower is Honda Red". or nut'in like that. It would just be a really pretty red that everyone would love..... just say'in...

So perhaps the showe for the Tot'er needs this color?

Of course it isn't over once this is agreed,,,,, cause I own 5 different Honda's that are Honda's reds, each one different. So lots of selection!!!!

Terry, I think you should appease everyone and just paint the rear end of the Tot'r Honda Red, you know, something like this

Carl - that looks more like Mysterious Red than Honda Red. It would look good on the Tot'r and tie in with the shower surround in the Tot'r and the TH. LOL - just sayin'.

It appears Terry is taking the adult approach to this and taking the high road. If he ignores us long enough we will forget what we were talking abou - huh - look a butterfly.

This is getting better and better... you'll really see that axel... looks nice

Well I must of mixed it right because its hard as a rock.
Can I use just regular window screening for cracks instead of the Fiberglass material? I really had no luck with the Dab Dab application it seemed too pull the fiberglass mesh off. I think your correct about removing the taillight assembly, I tried using my angle grinder too smooth out the OP's mess and think it would be best to start that part over.
Thanks for helping me with this mess. Its already starting to look better too me anyways.

Tim

Tim,
I'm not sure how well the window screen will work. With the cloth, you have to hold the top with a finger (latex gloved of course) while you dab with the brush. Once you get the hang of it, it will be easy going. Glad to hear that you are going to take the tail light assembly out to repair. You are doing a good job, just take your time and don't give up. You will be fine.
Frank

Tim I agree with Frank. Go slow and take it in small steps. Just like Terry did in his video. I know you can do it with a bit of practice. Don't forget Terry is a professional and has years of practice.


HD - I notice Terry is wisely ignoring us, saying nothing and doing exactly what he wants. If we come up with a meaningful suggestion he will implement it with his usual skill and efficiency. Meanwhile I vote for Mysterious Red. If you type it six or seven times it is not too bad to enter!

Good Evening, Sorry Tim, I would continue with the regular matting/cloth, because it soaks up the resin and becomes one solid piece, try brushing a good base on then with DRY fingers lay the material in the resin you brushed on, that will hold the material and put the resin on by getting your brush loaded and dab it DON'T brush like painting, do small areas your doing fine. I buy what they call "chip" brushes cheap brushes we used to brush away steel chips when drilling ect. use once and chuck'em. Mark, it's just beginning LOL. Frank good advise . Gordon, I would never ignore you guys , as you say I might pick and choose the suggestions LOL. I would never call myself a pro, I have put together several Corvettes and fiberglass bodies on jeeps, used to love the jeep guys, put the jeep all together on Monday they would go boggin and I would have to fix it all over again. Took a break from the PU today have to give the ole hands a rest, so I fixed lawn equipment, replaced weedeater fuel lines, primer bulb on a chainsaw, and tore apart another weedeater and ordered parts. This stuff never ends

Terry,
Looks like you are into the fun stuff, lol. There is always something that is broken around here, I probably spend an hour everyday repairing something, just part of the job.

Thanks for the direction Terry, I think I'll have it looking better than the OP's Job, not sure what he used to apply but didn't turn out very well. I will use latex gloves next time I apply the matting.
By the way I have approximately 6 dead weed whips in the garage. I'll stick to the fiber-glassing...
Tim
