deleated, sorry no comment...
Hey you deleted your last post.
You were just taking me down memory lane. What was it "lay up on a 135 twin tip".
Let me see if I remember the formula with out looking at my notes.
Core to exterior skin order.
5/8" corecell hand shaped with tapered thickness at the tips.
Fin inserts routed out and filled with 2 part casting polyurethane resin.
seal foam with epoxy bog.
5 oz carbon strips over fin footprint.
12 oz. double bias biax.
4 oz. warp.
poly bating breather.
bagged on rocker table.
Capped snowboard inserts inside star shaped routed holes.
Seal foam with epoxy bog, start layup while tacky.
5oz. carbon strips over fin inserts.
5 oz. carbon heel stomps.
5oz. kevlar flex patch under and between the feet.
6 oz. S.
Bag on rocker table.
wrap board in black nylon mesh and bake in full sun for 4 hours.
Sand, epoxy bog float, sand, pin hole sealer, sand, epoxy primer, 2 pac death spray.
dril out fin inserts.
counter sink all holes.
Whew! so much work for a tiny curved dinner tray.
busterbaby is completely full of himself and knows nothing about making surfboards; while GL is the originator of the modern single to double concave so popular today, as well as, the preeminent producer of epoxy resins for 30 years. Greg please stop arguing with this barn, he is not worth it.

First intelligent statement from the ghetto!
Right now we know that CE and KK will turn. We haven't yet tried 2000 or 2020. Their a little different so results could be different.
Is it possible there is a pronounced "clash" between acetone and UV stabilizers in modern epoxies...
Would a non- UV stabilized test panel turn color???
I used to wipe down cured epoxy laminated boards with acetone prior to painting with 2 part polyurethane paints,, I would have never seen any color changes..
Wipe down an 8 hour cured test panel of each R.R. resin system, and I'll bet none of them turn color.... Add acetone to "wet" uncured epoxy and I think you'll get changes every time...
Howzit kiterider, I have been watching this thread since it started and things are getting a little out of hand and am surprized it hasn't been locked down yet so I will just say Acetone is for cleaning up poly resin and not supposed to be used for thinning and is actually useless when it comes to epoxy. Aloha,Kokua
I.m not the bad guy here,
but I'm willing to keep my mouth shut in the future...
Howzit kiterider, No intention that you were the bad guy, just replied to your post since it mentioned Acetone as a thinner and that I have beenwaiting for a mod to lock this thread but if it gets away from others getting a little out of hand I can see it continue. When I saw the post about lawsuits ( not you) that was when I thought " here we go with a lockdown" Aloha,Kokua
