That's some good polyester primer. You should have recieved 4 small tubes of hardener with it when purchased.

One tube was for the quart of resin and the other for the quart of featherfill.

If you get a gallon a featherfill, they will give you 4 tubes of activator.

I believe the small tubes are .75 oz? 11cc for a quart and 40cc for a gallon.

The correct ratio is 2% of volume.

Not sure about the metric measure.
It's 1 small tube (.75 fl. oz.) per quart.

Recommends a 1.7-2.2 nozzle.

One tip to remember.

Once this is activated it will HARDEN!!!!!

So, BE SURE TO CLEAN YOUR GUN PROMPTLY AFTER SPRAYING!!!!

Or, You'll have a solid chunk of what's left in the gun shortly. With the hot weather,that could be as little as 15 min.

While we are on this product.
Is there an issue using this over epoxy? I have with good results but reading their tech sheet it say's to use a metal etching primer on bare metal.
No mention of epoxy.

I was wondering that too. It says refinish urethanes,bare metal and factory finish. I think epoxy would be fine. I think im going to go with a coat of PPG etch first.

just finished restoring the body on a 67 firebird. epoxied the bare metal, waited 24 hours then shot the g2 on the epoxy. its bonds to the epoxy great. just the same as a body filler would.

even though it says its ok to spray over acid etch primer i would probably try to stay away from that combo. we all know that polyesters over acid etch is a no no. evercoat might have overcome this with the g2 but i'm sure over epoxy will be a much more durable and glitch free way to go.

Yes but epoxy isn't going to take care of trace rust. Im in Louisiana and the humidity is so high that with in 20 minutes of sanding my bare metal im getting flash rust. There was a post on here with an Email from Evercoat saying G2 can be used over etch. And it says it in the label and tech sheets.

i know, its the same here, 95% humidity all the time in the summer. i'm sure if they say it will work then it will but if in any way you can go with epoxy then do it. when i did the bird just before i epoxied took a red scotchbrite over the whole car and wiped with wax and grease remover. took me and another guy 1/2 hour. see if you can get a friend to help.

also another tip is latex gloves. dont touch the metal. the flash rust will occur first wherever you touch it with your hands
