I did forget how long it was. BUT it is way shorter than the $50 paint job or was it $20 one I did read it before, as a on going process, but what the hay I read the "health care bill" too.

use lizardskin once and you'll know it is not paint . i will never understand some of this. i have yet to hear any results because none of the cars are finished . i have used lizardskin for over 7 years and done many cars with it. it works way better than dynamat or jute. fills all the voids which by the way is where the heat comes from . on the corvettes is works really great. gives the car a solid sound and keeps the cabin cool.

Micro Spheres

If you're interested in the home-brew version of the shin as discussed here, go to aircraftspruce.com and look at item 01-14600 for the one pound supply of micro spheres or item 01-14700 for the five pounder.

Be careful! These glass spheres are tiny and very light. Wear a mask, gloves and goggles when handling them. They will drift on a weak breeze and be everywhere if you dump some. A pound goes a long way - depending on how much you mix in. It's like mixing nitro (before the 90% rule) If some is good, more is better and too much is just right.

I've been buying from Aircraft Spruce since the early '70's. I even remember their old place in Fullerton. Great company. If you're near Corona, CA stop in and they'll even pick you up at the gen-av airport nearby..... I don't know if they'll take you back, if you don't buy anything.

Has anyone ever mixed the glass bubbles from Aircraft Spruce with an oil based paint? I scored two gallons of oil based paint from Home Depot that was returned by a customer for $5.00 ea. Was hoping to use them with the glass bubbles on my interior,before upholstery. Please comment soon as I will be doing this real soon.

Yes, they can be mixed into oil based paints just like any other paint.
