How many quart bottles total (of each compound) did you use on the boat?

Nice job.

I use this thing for everything I would not think of otherwise. Even baking layer cakes (decorated for events), marking lines for construction, level marks for cut and fill, placement for wall hangings, drywall alignment, etc... It is very compact, as the photo shows it fully extended. Uses one 9V battery.

Well, now I can justify buying a self-leveling laser level.

1 quart of each will go a long way. If you use more than that...you're makin a big mess.

ah yes...the trailer. I hate to tell you what refinishing those fenders cost me. Yikes! I forgot that a quart of red basecoat alone cost approx $150.00. They sure turned out nice though. I had a paint guy snapshot the boat to match color, it's called GM festival red. Now I'm afraid to step on them!

Fantastic job. I had an 84 that was almost that nice and was still all original. The trailer was the only thing that needed work, so I'm impressed at the work on the trailer.
