    They say 7 days for cure, but it keeps curing for several weeks, but after 7 days its not likely to be chemically open enough to accept paint without sanding it. The 7 day open window for top coat is based on the items being stored inside at 70 degrees, temperature and sun will change that. How long after spraying the epoxy before you sprayed the rhino liner?

    The epoxy cured for just over a week indoors... Then I sanded it with 80 grit before applying the bedliner.. it was actually Raptor liner now that I think about it, very pleased with it.. I only sprayed the faces of the drawers with liner, I left the insides just in SPI.

    I'm finally off the road until February!! I've picked up a lot of extra work this year so I haven't had much time to work on the Safari... In addition to the extra workload theres a possibility that I might be moving to Colorado in the late spring if a prospective job opportunity pans out I've been spending any extra time between gigs finishing up projects around the house.... I doubt I'll get much done this winter, my goal is to get the floor pan welded in and have the body mounted on the frame before I move (if it happens).

    I had a couple of free hours to spend in the shop tonight so I started mounting the floor pan onto the frame with the polyurethane body mount kit... I just wanted to make sure everything fits well before its time to weld it all together... I thought this would be a quick and easy project, but I ended up spending about 2 hours chasing my tail before I figured it all out... lesson learned

    I placed all of the upper poly mounts in first, then put the floorpan on the frame... I worked my way from the back of the frame to the front sliding in the washers and bolting in the lower poly mounts...i I figured if I left everything loose it would give me plenty of wiggle room to shift the floor around and center it up.....It turns out the nut on the passenger side rear body mount was welded about 1/4" further back than it should have been. stubborned me figured it out the hard way.

    Bought myself a Christmas present this week. I've been looking for a good drill press for a few years now to replace my cheap-o drill press, I just didn't want to spend $800-$1000 on one. Found this Powermatic 1150 VS on craigslist for $450... It was advertised in good shape with no runout... I drove an hour to pick it up, and that's when he told me it vibrates a lot when its running... The quill operated smoothly with no runout at the chuck so I took a chance on it. I put a new belt on it and figured out the vibration was a result of the set screw on the rear sheave being completely loose. Runs smooth now, just needs a good cleanup.
