Please say that this has firmed up into an actual plan. :lol:

Hi George,

It's an ISO-Free 2 pack, it's about 85% as hard and glossy as standard 2 pack, without the nasty side effects. Seems to work ok.

How big is your car David?
Not a problem. Just tie it on the roof racks.

Just beautiful David. Have really enjoyed the time and effort you have put into this bird and thank you for documenting the whole process.
