i blame me mate no probs.
in answer to the screw debate see the link.
coach screws are wood screws they have an un-threaded shank which on your job will be small which will be hid in the console and sika flex area.
they are only tapered to start the screw then they are parallel i guess you would need 40 mm long screws for 25 mm ply 3 mm sika, 5 mm console and 8 mm through so the taper is past the wood giving full width of the screw in the wood.
as for tightening use a battery drill with a torque setting and hex bit if you dont want to over tighten practise on a spare bit of wood.wood self tappers are ok but you need the thread to be deep not shallow to bite well into the wood as ply is relatively soft dont forget its a laminate not solid hard wood. i coated my screws with sika if i were to do it again i would use gorilla glue just because it swells and will reinforce the wood in the screw area, all in my opinion of course

Just did a small flat area with 600grit wet & dry...... needs 400g for sure or maybe 320g/240g for first run over. Corners will prob be done by hand.


Must be honest here - it looks real shite right now and would not use the gel/flowcoat stuff again. But this is a learning curve I have to make pay as I invested into the coatings.


I wonder how much it would cost to have sprayed in say 2 pack?


That's it for tonight, tis brewski o'clock

Well,
Using gel/flowcoat turned out to be a total waste of my time, effort and resources. Impossible to sand flat without the original colour coming through....okay would be possible if I had the patience of a saint. Time to cut my losses here.


Took it to car sprayer to get it back to flat and apply 2 pack - 200.

Hi there BB,

TBH, he looked at it and was not keen to do it, but as I push a bit of work through his friend then maybe he felt obliged.

In man hours I reckon on 60 mins prep time, then undercoat & top coat spraying time + material costs. So maybe 2 hrs max? I dunno.
What would 2 pack paint costs be for the job 30?

yes about 30 but don't forget activator primer and activator thinners abrasives masking materials and downtime where he isn't making his usual money and the general awkwardness of working on a boat rather than a car .he is doing you a big favour. when he could probably be making 300 for painting a scuffed bumper on a panel stand
