I have read previously of this method. This thread though really has me thinking that I may in the near future try this method. I like the idea of using Red Plaster’s tape as the second tape on a double tape.
good stuff - thanks! im going to have to try this....
And this is why I love Swaylocks!!!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL!

Well thanks for sharing that!
All my local shapers do there best not to do epoxy cutlaps and ive tried several methods so far! Will defo be trying this on the next one
Now if someone would share the secret to non cloudy epoxy glass ons!
What resin do you use?
Rr bio. Allways warmed on the heater for a few hours and never stirred hard
Is it the CE and the resin has a blue tint?
That's a zipper cut. You wait until the lap is nearly cured....like 80-90% then you bend it up at tape line and get a 90 degree angle, then slide the blade right at the bend. I am not sure that Josh's lap is fully cured. It seems a tad pliable. But maybe not. Anyway.....yeah, much easier to do wiht poly since it cures much fast but with the quick kixk epoxies, they can come close to poly cure times if you get the epoxy really warm prior to mixing in the hardener.
The zipper cut is tricky at first. Cut too soon and it;s mess and you never get a clean trim. Wait to long and then you will ahve truble bending it up...but I guess that is where the grinding of it can come in handy.
What oz and type cloth are you guys using for your epoxy tints?
