    I used to work with a guy at RAL nr Didcot about 30 years ago who he reminds me of - he was a cantankerous Scottish guy with a penchant for special brew, and he had ME.
    He was a miserable buggar a large part of the time, often coz he felt unwell. But after a few runs in we got on very well. Not before calling me a stupid fucking cunt - I did deserve it having accidentally wiped out the seals on a vacuum pump, contaminated the prototype gas chamber we were working on (back to the clean room for 2 weeks), and created a massive stink (literally) that required H&S to seal up the lab for a week. 'Experience is proportional to equipment broken' as he told me later once he'd calmed down.

    Would you give a quote on a primmered car that turns up.

    The real product is called Dolphin Glaze, use the proper stuff.

    He isn't mixing dolphin glaze with filler, he is mixing polyester spray filler with filler to make it thinner, poly spray filler is not dolphin glaze.
    Each item does a different job in the process.

    I wouldn't suggest you watch and copy this or you are going to get into a plie of shit unless you are extremely experienced and know what you are doing.
    The old boy Pete, and I have watched his vids for entertainment, cause that's all they are worth, for a while. Us old bstds know a lot of tricks and tips to get a job done quickly and cheaply, if that's what you want.
    Unless you have a vast knowledge then stick to propriety well know products if you are doing it yourself.

    Just trying to point you in the right direction that's all.

    Well using my previous bad experiences as a warning I would have a damn good poke around and write a quote laying out the extent of my liability in regard to not having done the prep and primering, get things in writing and signed copies for both parties, it makes sense and avoids future problems
