    Didja heat it up? Curious, I've heard it flows better and "steams" into the critical places like door edge folds and the like. Thought about putting linseed through an old pneumatic undercoat gun my Pops owned from years back. Seeing what PA DOT and some the Jersey road salt victims look like after a couple seasons makes linseed a wise move.

    You're not planning to run two fuses/breakers on the fuse block, are you? I assume not & if not I would HIGHLY advise against having it all the way across the engine bay from the batter. You want your fused link as close to the battery as possible. Having a hot wire running across your entire engine bay unfused is a recipe for disaster.

    Indeed. Just learning to use it. And to think I went all these years doing it by hand. I'm officially out of the Stone Age.

    When I finally kill my Porter-Cable 7424, that Flex is the likely replacement.

    Move that high current breaker over to the battery.
    You don't need a 2nd one at the panel.
    Also, the sum total of the fuse values of the branch circuits need to be less than the value of the breaker.

    Lol, it would look good on your truck.

    $5 can of Krylon Fusion, some masking tape, and about 30 minutes of time is all it would take you to do it. I was worried it would be hard to mask the lettering, but I just masked over it and trimmed the tape around the lettering with a razor blade. It was pretty easy.

    I didn't heat it - I sprayed it with a cheap Wagner sprayer. It pretty much mists the linseed oil. The label suggests heating for coating wood. I'm sure it would flow better and probably drip more off the frame work. Please let me know your experience with your Pops old pneumatic undercoat gun.

    Thanks, yellowtop is almost 3 years old. I'm on the coats in florida, which is a recipe for short battery life, and it's still going strong. it runs a lot of extra stuff, sometimes without the motor running, and shows no signs of slowing down thus far. yellow for sure over a red.
