    Thanks for that!

    After your do a bit of grinding, do apply more epoxy or do you just rinse the dust out with water and leave it?

    I'm using a NIOSH epoxy rated cartridge filter when epoxying, and either a N95 or a regular cartridge filter mask when sanding. I also tend to sand outside. I'm very aware of keeping my lungs safe, being a firefighter and all :nod

    So vacuum it and you're done... good to know.

    I'm in the home stretch of finishing 2 top boxes, just have to sand the inside, install the back catch and latch on one. The other needs more work, but it's coming along.

    Thanks again.

    Hi Erling,

    I am about to get the 4 M8 x 5.5 cm bolts to install the top rack that I made and I have a question regarding the bolt head and what would be better.

    I was thinking that a counter sunk flat head may break through over time and that I should be looking at a shouldered bolt maybe with a washer to distribute any loading.

    Do I have the right length for the bolts and any suggestions would be welcome!

    Yes, I finally drank from the blue and white koolaid fountain :clap

    I`m with you on the flat head..... I used an allen head.... But anything flat is better that conical..... Which distributes the force a bit outward as well.... imho. Length wise... I don`t recall what length I used..... But as long as it it fully engages...... you will be ok..... I`m in Ohio.....plopping south to the gulf....on vacation.... so it will be a few weeks before I get home to measure.......:thumb:thumb

    Yeppers.... As the title proclaims..... Hog hunt. We were scouting a canyon north of Timberon,NM where the hogs are thriving.... NM has declared war on them as they don't want a repeat of what happened in Texas.... So they simply declared them livestock..... Shoot at day....night.... illuminate them.... No hunting license required. Several ranchers are letting people harvest them on their land..... So we were trying to get into the canyon from the south... But as the vid indicates.... Fails. There are several more vid's from that trip on my you tube channel.:thumb:thumb
