sanding primer ?


the puke green ultralight came out when the ultralight drywall came out. i guess its suppose to be a new and improved finishing compound. i havent personally used it, i've picked up a bucket at the store and it is lighter but i havent heard that its much better and for $5 a buck i was told not to waste my time/money. i always use lafarge rapid coat much better then any sheetrock product but use what you know works for you.

sanding primer ?


i put on almost half the bucket yesterday. i had to wet it down a good bit. perhaps i had a dry batch, idk. but the water helped a lot. i am going to be sanding it today.

lol- everyone's' favorite job. I use a hand sander hooked to a shop vac- at least it makes it way less messy.
Sounds like you're getting it though. keep it up!

sanding primer ?


man. my freak'n body is hurting me. and my house is a mess, kinda. but i got it mostly cleaned up. and i have the whole room primed. i do still have some fix'n to do. but i should be able to paint next weekend.

i did learn my lesson on putting up drywall = no more butt joints, ever. full sized sheets, no cutting of the tapered sides, 16" oc throughout , cut out for windows and doors = nothing but tapered joints = easy tap'n and sand'n.
