I think this will be my first and only gallon of slick sand, however. It's just insane how hard this stuff sands. If I have to do it again I might try featherfill if it sands better. I think it might be cheaper as well, just doesn't build as much.
Featherfill sands nice. I don't see a problem with how it sands. I see a possible problem with rock chips cause it doesn't have an element of flex like your 2k's. Haven't seen any issues but can imagine it maybe being an issue. So, on my Mustang the front end will get one app of poly and one or two rounds of 2k , just to make me feel better about it.

with that said, we always see our cars 6 months later when we do a free buff job on the car and I haven't once seen a rock chip on any hood. Some are drivers and some are diva cars.
