X2 on that Mike...as some of you may know I recently tried SPI for the first time and abused it to no end on my test panels. It's been several months now and on one of the overly abused panels I took a ball peen hammer to the epoxy side and the un- primed side....I beat the crap out of the panel, I couldn't get the primer to let go until I used the flat side of the hammer and hit the primer the flat side of the hammer at an angle. What let go didn't go down to bare metal...so, as Mike said, just because it's epoxy doesn't mean that it's going to give you the protection that the manufacturer claims, chose an Epoxy with a proven record and if SPI can withstand the abuse it took during application and stood up to more abuse than any rocks on the road could give it, guess what I'm using

Ray.
