I use this Plastic weld on the Roper's dash with very good results.

Major sanding with 100 grit. Went through 4 pads on the mouse. I need to wire brush the underneath, then switch to 220 on the top. After that wet sand with 400. May have to go back over some spots as the wet sanding makes the imperfections show up.

Final JB touch-ups are done, needs to harden for the final sanding. Nice surprise today, the Mandrills came in +1. I went back and checked where I ordered them off ebay. One primary, and two Secondary's. Not sure why I received an additional primary. All is good.

I'm going to try what is leftover from my fiberglass kit

Had a really HOT and busy weekend. Hulk II got his first waxing, and I am going to try and get the first coat of paint on his deck tonight.

After a brutal day at work I was able to get a couple coats of paint on the deck outside. The deck has been moved into the shop with Grandson's kelp and I'll apply one more coat before shutting down the shop for the evening. He has the best seat in the shop.

New mandrills are a little different, but should work fine.
Pulleys now have a bolt, and the body is longer.

 

Logan has one of the better seats in the shop.

Note to self, Don't paint the deck outside in 100* heat, then bring it in to the Shop A/C before drying! First issue was the paint turned a grey in a couple areas, so I tried touching those up. The touchup crinkled :( . I took the deck back outside this evening and sanded the crinkles and re painted.
