Having good lighting will make a ton of difference. I thought my last project was looking pretty good until I pulled it out into the sunshine :cry:
I painted it.....that made it apparent lol. I actually feel like I should have painted way before I did would have highlighted problem areas

So put some epoxy graphite on......and well it's done. It's an interesting material to work with. I think I didn't mix enough or I had some of the mess Cracker Larry talks about. There is a good bit of little clumps in it. But nothing I can't put a sticker over :). Flipping Wednesday making the cradle between now and then

What kind of lights did you install in your garage? That hull looks good sitting in there. .

I would rather it be on a trailor, but soon enough. I got the lights through Amazon link below. They are hooked into a lamp cord with an on/off switch plugged into an Alexa outlet. The switch is fixed on and the alexa outlet is voice controlled. Saved me from having to get someone to install for me.

80W LED Garage Lights, Deformable Garage Light with 3 Adjustable Wings, 8000LM, E26 LED Shop Light, Barn Light, High Bay Light, Ceiling Lighting
$24.99
Amazon.com

My garage is electrically challenged, builder built to spec but everything is on a single 20 amp breaker and they really have way to much on that circuit. Really wish they wouldn't have cut that corner...

Hopefully we'll get all the glass on the inside Saturday. In the mean time I have developed a bit of an epoxy problem.....no that isn't all of it.....not even half.....let alone my marine epoxy.....

Nice looking cradle. That is the way to make sure they fit right.

Congratulations on the flip. It is always nice to have that in back of you :D
