    For those of you who read about my imitation gold / One Shot dillema last week, i had applied gerber 220 to the not so dry sign panel and installed it end of last week under much duress. I went by there today and was pleased to find the paint had finally dried and looked acceptable. EXCEPT - two half dollar size areas where the paint skinned over too quickly and tightened up leaving a little alligator in the finish. Should expect that these spots will crack and fall off in short order?

    no sarcasm this winter my Friend did a church sign with 1 shot brown and it dint dry for 2 weeks.

    last year I did a dark blue sign and lettered it to soon to get orange peel.

    so I felt your pain.

    Sounds like I should pick up a couple of cans of their gold size before they mess that up too.

    Computers or Paint.....doesn't much matter, any time there's a problem it's almost always "User Error".
