    I wouldn't ever use it personally, It never goes rock hard and isn't polishable plus you can't overcoat it without problems, 2 pack is so much better and easy to work with.

    Isnt 2 pack nasty for the lungs? Im spraying it on you see. Ive done half me van with a zinc primer already just rubbing down and trying to weld the other bits. Pretty ****ed off though i was supposed to be going to a show. But because money is tight (was made redundant a few months ago)i said id stay at home and try and have a good go on my van. Then last night the wire feed on my mig just stops working grrrrrrrrrrr gutted . Looks like its my dads old arc welder so could scrap the van instead

    Sorry Bry was just trying to explain why.
    I've had people tell me that synthetic is as good as 2 pack, if it was why does everybody use 2 pack ???

    Yea im told that synthetic nowadays is virtually a budget 2k,ie can be flat n polished, but has poor hold out qualities,i think what were trying to do justifies the few more quid investment long term
