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.

John long 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.

MARTINSR 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.

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!

inkfreak1976 this is a great find, I hate useing rattle can for guide coat. recently instead of paint if been useing rattle can primer. because its easy sand doesnt clog up the paper. and ive been trying to figure something out that would work like the powder coat. thanks for the tips, and the coffee grinder thing is brilliant the old lady has been wanting a new one any how.

I guess when I think about it, I was actually shown to just use a different color primer (not black paint)
