    radius compound

    hello all, here is alittle story and some more education to all that are unaware of this stuff. this compound has a lot uses, it is like a body filler but it is a lot strong and will bond with the fibergalss better seeing how it was desgined for it. i will be including a few pics on how to apply it as i was instructed by a great friend and mentor in the fiberglass world. i am not here to start any bickering and i am not going to give up any names. its not who i am. but i recently started to clean up an old diablo roadster body i had aquired. i started with the front clip and to my surprise the work was just as bad in the front as it was in the back. if the builder had used a product like this alot of work could have been avoided and his work would have been much much much better and nicer looking. i do not want to bring the whole body deal to the front center again. but i will say a few days ago i was quite upset and ready to. i hope all of you builders will read this and give this stuff a try. it truely is awesome and will save a ton of time when laying up parts. in the pics you will see how i was taught to use the stuff and also how i was able to use it like a body filler. the product was made by a fl company called NidaCore.

    here is how it is used. as you can see or not with the stupid picture size restiction. but you can see how i stuffed the corners with the stuff so when i lay the glass out it will have a smooth transition. inother words i wont fight it to fit in corners tightly

    and finally, the cool thing you guys in fl can just go buy the stuff, for us other we have to pay shipping and i am here to say that it is exspensive to ship hazardous materials. but it is well worth it when your parts are done and they are very solid. any question class ;D lol

    Thanx for the update. Could you take a step back on the pictures? Can't tell if you're taking pictures of Greenland or body work.

    Here's the website for those interested: http://nida-core.com/english/
