    Re: Carmody's Carrera Build thread Trans-laminated (PIC HEAVY)

    It's water based finish by Target Coatings (online only) http://targetcoatings.com/products/i...em8000-series/ it was really great to work with but you need a pretty fine tip for the gun. It dries really fast and has very little fumes (just a faint smell and the over spray). Super easy to work with. I spray 3-4 coats and blocked sanded and buffed out to gloss finish. Used all 3m products (rubbing compound, glaze, etc)

      Those are amazing! Nice job. I think on my next build I am going to give the trans lam a shot on the baffles...

        They look great Mike! I don't think I have the patience to all that sanding though😁

          Definitely try it, it's pretty easy to do and it machines very nicely with the router. I actually loved the way it machined versus mdf!

          I definitely won't do a full trans-lam again it was too time consuming. I would do baffles again though.

            I like how they darkened up a bit. What else is there to say. They look freaking sweet!
            Isn't it about time we started answering rhetorical questions?
