Old Fool, I bought my wife a nice new Mr Coffee grinder and heisted the one we've had for years, looks just like the Krups in your photo. 4.50 worth of artists charcoal ground up really nice and works great in my 3M guidecoat kit, beats the 50.00 for the 3M refill kit.

Thanks for the tip!

On this subject, I will never go back to spraying guide coat, the dry powder is so much better it isn't even a discussion.

I think rattle can is far superior for bodylines, but like the dust stuff for quick apps. If I'm working on a stubborn wheel crown I'll reach for the powder cause it's gonna need to be guide coated a few times in a localized area. If it's a troublesome bodyline then I reach for a cheap flat black can. If I blocked the top of a quarter already and am doing the face of the quarter I'll do the powder cause I don't want the overspray on the quarter tops. Both are good in my opinion.

There is a lot of oil in coffee beans. I would think twice before I did this with a USED coffee grinder. It would be terrible to contaminate a paint job to save a couple of dollars.

Henry, you bring up a very good point and I totally agree with you. On those sharp lines like that the good old aerosol would be a good way to go. I have abandoned them but yes, that is a good choice.

I still havent used a dry guide coat....When I got some and they told me the price I told them to kiss my donkey and left everything on the counter and havent been back since....
thats just one more product were getting raped on ...
Someone show us how to make our own paint and primer and we'll put the BIG boys out of buisness...
90.00 a pint is totally insane for an 08 factory color.I'm mad as hell.
