well lacquer dries by evaporation so it gets harder as it dries there is no hardener which i didnt want to use because of the isocyaniates (sp?), after 36 hours the clear coat can be wet sanded and buffed. honestly it doesnt need it for this application. maybe for a car where you want a high gloss finish but for this application the additioanl benefit of the extra clear coats that would be sacrificed for the high gloss i dont think would be worth it. i am really impressed with this product. this is the 6th vehicle i have painted over the decades and the first with the HVLP, i am considering this product for the vette and being able to "right size" the quanitity and return the extra product you dont need is a benefit.

Did it not have insulation originally or are you upgrading?
i dont know what pipe bunks are and i am not sure what my son ripped originally for insulation but this seemed like a good choice on my sons wallet.

just about no over spray at all, this is when we sprayed the demarcation line we were right on the line where the metal is folded

this is the nice thing about these "modern" HVLP guns, the paint actually goes where it needs to go and not just in the air....

Funny, as the company still exists, and on their web site, most POINTEDLY said they no longer make motor homes and offer nothing for support.....

I thought it funny ....but WTF....40 years.........

I had a 35' Franklin pull behind I lived in while I was in Atlanta, then hauled it to Detroit for a year. Traded it in on a 36' Travel Supreme. That Frnaklin was really not a bad trailer, but it was for sure NOT designed for either living in year round OR cold weather.

there was a guy at work in DC who lived on his boat his family didnt relocate with him...in the winter he stayed at work really late and watched TV in his office. i guess the boat was too damn cold...he showered at work also.
