Mark: Thank you, pleasure to be here.
Bill: How much of your material are we going to need today for our fastback?
Mark: With this particular car, we're going to start with our sound control product first and to completely encapsulate the interior and do the firewall, floor pan, the doors, the rear quarters, the trunk and the ceiling, we're going to use four gallons of product.
Bill: Four gallons total.
Mark: Total. Then we're going to let that sit for twenty-four hours, we're going to come back and then we're going to spray the same amount of ceramic insulation and we're going to stack it right on top.
Bill: What else are we going to need for the installation today?
Mark: We're going to use our Super Pro application gun, we also have a stirring paddle, we have our 90 degree nozzle for the really tight areas and we have our wet middle gage that we'll use to judge those twenty mill coats we're after.
Bill: That's all sold as a kit.
Mark: That's all sold as a kit.
Bill: Can you use your own gun if you have a gun at home?
Mark: You can, make sure you have a half inch pick up tube and a 5/16th nozzle. It is a viscous product, so you need that to spray it properly.
Bill: What else do we need?
Mark: Also you'll want to have a pair of gloves just to, you'll get some product on your hands and makes the clean up better. Have a cordless drill, we do want to stir it up for a few minutes and make sure it's all creamy smooth ready to go. I also like to have a bucket of water with a sponge in case I do get it somewhere I don't want it, it is water-based and you can wipe it right off.
Bill: Excellent, let's get started. We plan on encapsulating our entire interior roof, everywhere into our 5030 but for demonstration purposes today we're going to start with the floor and show you how to spray the material.
Our floor is fairly clean, what else do we need to do to get it ready before we start spraying?
Mark: Actually, it is kind of ready now, there's no bare metal, we primed over some areas that were bare, our seatbelt hole, our seat holes, anywhere we have threads, we want to roll up some foil or some tape, stick them in those holes so we preserve the threads. Any areas like your post up here, we want to wrap those up.
Bill: In spraying the roofs?
Mark: Put some paper out over the hood so any over-spray gets handled, you don't get it on the outside of your car, especially if it's painted and you're working on the inside.
Bill: You said if you do make a mistake and get a little bit on the body, it does come off when it's wet pretty easy with just water.
Mark: Yes, and that's what we use our bucket of water and a sponge for so if we catch it right then you can wipe it right off and it's gone.
Bill: What do you have to do to get the product ready to spray?
Mark: We're going to get our cordless drill and we're going to stir the product up, we want to stir for three or four minutes so it's creamy smooth. We'll take our cordless drill, we'll put it in reverse and stir it that way on low speed.
Bill: Let's get started. I'll get the lid off here for you.
Mark: We're just going to go slow, got it in reverse, work it from the bottom up to the top, give it a few minutes, we're looking for the creamy smooth consistency. I think we're good to go.
First thing we want to do is adjust our nozzle and what we do is we just screw it all the way in till it bottoms out and then just a simple way; two full turns out, lock it down is a really good point to start with and you can fine tune it from there if you want.
You also either want to put a regulator on your gun or have your compressor regulated to 70-75 PCI is fine. What we're going to do now is we're just going to pour the product into our cup and I always like to pour over the lizard skin side because your directions are on the back of it; it will drip so you'll make sure you're not covering up your instructions.
Bill: Good tip.
Mark: You just let it ribbon in, get to the top and start slowing it down. There you go. Prepared up. I always like to get a little piece of cardboard and spray it on just so I can get the product to the end of the nozzle; kind of get an idea of what my pattern's going to look like.
Bill: What pressure are you spraying at?
Mark: I'm spraying at 70 PSI. Ready to go. Get a nice softball size pattern, that's what we're looking for right there. All we've done is we put a little primer down on some bare metal we had, seatbelt holes, we went ahead and put some tape over them so we don't get any product in on the threads. We're going to go ahead and start here.
Bill: That definitely covers a lot of area in a hurry, I mean it comes out fast and half the floor is done in a couple minutes.
Mark: Yes, it's really an easy application, do it yourself, it goes right in. One thing I want to do right quick our wet build gage, we just stick this in to the wet product and where it stops on the teeth will tell us where we're at so we know what our thickness is.
Bill: Where are we at?
Mark: We're right on our 20 mill, so we're perfect right there for that first coat.
Bill: Excellent. Our first coat is just about dry, we'll give it another thirty minutes or so, hit it with a second coat and then wait twenty-four hours and tomorrow we'll add the ceramic insulation.
Here we are on day two of our Lizardskin installation. Yesterday, we sprayed the sound control, let it sit out for twenty-four hours and now we're going to spray the ceramic insulation.
Spraying the ceramic insulation versus sound control; same pressure, same rules, nothing different, same pattern, same idea?
Mark: Yes, everything exactly the same, we're going to mirror what we did yesterday. Still got our nozzle at two turns out, 70 PSI on the gun, we're going to do two 20 mill coats.
Bill: You know it's a thicker material, just lay it down the same way.
Bill: Great. The Lizardskin products were easy to install and did a great job bedding the metal on our '65 Fastback. Mark, thanks again for coming out and giving us a hand with our Project 50/30.
