Hi Michael,

These are very popular and timeless projects. You did a good job with this one.

By the way I have to ask what are nano-pearls? I googled it and I understand the fullerenes reference but couldn’t find a reference for finishing applications.

Thanks for the post.

Thanks for the comments and
sorry guys, I should better have sad nano fluid (the pearls are just in the fluid). my english is pretty rusty, I hope this is the place to get the rust off a little….
I will take the bottle from my shop tomorrow and post some further details. by the way I was a bit disapointed with the nano stuff. It woks fine for just a couple weeks, the uv light is killing it, but not completely. when you try to spray it on again, it won’t stik to itself without sanding.

Very nice Mike. I’d appreciate hearing more regarding the “Nano Fluid”.
