    Why would you not spray inside the door? That is where rust is at as well! I don't get it.

    If I used the contour sct with 80grit stopping drum and got my panel to bare metal can I spray this on right away to seal it or do I need to go over the panel with the finishing drum or even 120 grit then 180 grit

    safety question: I read product does not have isocyanates lead or chromate, but there is still a safety warning of respirator, eye and skin protection however the demo does not respect the safety recommendation with bare skin and exposed eyes. Is it that safe or what?

    Can you spray it right away? No need to thin down the solution? Is it not too viscous?
