I looked at your subforum. Thanks so much for the pictures! They speak a thousand words. You really had your work cut out for you! I've got a table saw, so I'll use your method. Did you purchase the tape at HD, or did you get it with the Prodex from Insulation4less?

Your job looks great!

Well, the wedding is over, so I started puttering on the underside of the AS today again. I finished wirebrushing all the metal in the middle of the frame. I'm saving the outriggers for later, when my son can weld them. Then I cleaned & POR-15'd them. So my question is this.....how long does POR-15 stay on your body???? I have it all over me from rolling around in the stuff!!! I had long sleeves & pants on with gloves and a baseball hat. I have it in my hair, on my legs (came thru my pants) on my lower back (jeans were sagged I guess) and even on my ankles!! I wouldn't care, except my husband & I are going to Mexico next week & I don't want to don my bathing suit with black spots all over me!!! I would rather polish any day of the week. I really hate this job!

you're supposed to wear protective clothes with that and a respirator.

It will come off your skin in a few weeks

Hi, Becky. You will need to post pictures [in bikini] so we can evaluate the situation before we can make proper solutions for you.

Well, unless I wore a rubber suit, I think that long sleeves, gloves, socks, shoes, jeans & a baseball hat are protective clothes!!! I was rolling around in paint on a plastic drop cloth (I guess I'm a messy painter) As far as a respirator, I was outside & I'm clausterphobic!! I hope it's less that a FEW weeks!!!!

That will only happen over my dead and rotting body!!!! However, if I were my sister, who just had her entire body reworked, I might do it! I haven't donned a bikini since b/f childbirth....it ain't a pretty sight anymore

No fashion expert here but I thought black went with everything?

Couldn't help myself...Sorry Becky

Actually I don't know of anything that will safely take it off once it dries on the skin. Just some serious scrubbing and time.

Regards,

Kevin

A black & white polka dot bikini would help it blend in - humm... maybe leopard skin..

The consensus on auto restoration sites seems to be Acetone (nail polish remover) and a kitchen scrubby pad....

Acetone on the skin is not all that safe.

Well, that's bad news for all us women who do our nails! I'm going to have to take the scrubby pad in the shower today & see what I can do! Actually, black does go with a couple of my bathing suits. It's a good thing I don't wear a bikini, because there's a really big splotch right where my pants meets my shirt. Not too attractive and not too easy to reach! This is what my hat looked like after one coat. I wore a knit cap with my hair tucked in it for the second coat! Guess I'll get a new one on vacation!

Sorry for not getting back to answer your question. I got the aluminum tape at Home Depot. They sell two different widths and I chose the 2 inch stuff.

As for your dilemma, they really ought to sell POR 15 in a flesh tone color!

I need this trip so badly, nothing will stop me (unless someone dies, of course!). In the last week I've had out of town company for a dinner party, picked up my dad from the hospital twice, helped my sister who had surgery take a shower of all things!, moved my son, who lived with my daughter, back in the house, had Thanksgiving dinner, then had my daughter's wedding rehersal Friday, wedding Saturday, hubby left for hunting Sunday, brought the newlyweds to the airport Monday, cleaned up the wedding aftermath at my house, and relaxed on Tuesday by crawling under the trailer to paint. My stress related twitch in my left eye is gone, but I just need some water & sun and a nice, tall mojito to top me off! I'm going outside to do some wire brushing on the rear side of the trailer, but I'm keeping away from the POR-15 until I get back. It'll probably be too cold to do it then, so I'll have to wait till spring. Ordered my prodex today, so maybe I'll do that in the dead of winter!
