OK, I am into this now with the Jasco and it's proving to be much slower and more difficult than I was hoping...(wait, that pretty much describes this whole project!
Please share any tips you have or point out things I might be missing.
The directions to paint in on, I find I need to slather/glob it on to get any results and I have to apply it where gravity will let it pool, vs. run and dry.
I wait ~15 minutes, some spots will be "lifted" and some seem barely affected. Did you guys find it was better to let it sit for more or less time?
I shook it up pretty good but it's still fairly jelly-like with some lumps that don't break down. Is this normal? I am almost through a quart and I think I'll need a gallon to finish the one end cap...sound right?
Even in the best cases a gluey residue is left behind. I tested using some scotch-brite with mineral spirits and it cleaned it pretty good but clouded up the finish...I think and hope it will polish back to a shine but I don't want to cloud up the whole thing or I will be polishing forever.
Again, this is Zolatone..the ballistic oatmeal colored paint they used in the early 60's before they went to vinyl.
Estmayum, I assumed you used a plastic bondo knife for scraping, but did the steel wool not thrash your finish? How hard was it to polish back to mirror?
