Re: Surface Pit Repair - WA State recommendations?

Re: Star leg not filled

And yes, there is a very good chance that curing will take place when you lift the towel off the bridge. You sai...

I prefer using a mini torch going in a circular motion starting around 4 inches in diameter and working inward toward the break. The aluminum heat exchanger tool I touch the break for about 3 sec...

Re: 6.5 months down amazing customers

Would you explain how you manage 5000 repairs in 6.5 months. If you are working 6 days a week, that's 32 repairs per day!?

Re: Difficult Vehicle

Have you tried opening the door nearest the break and standing on the floor board? If you can reach the break cover the door frame with towel or blanket.

Why are you thinking about changing resins after all these years?
