Re: A-Pillar Pods IM BACK!!! - 08Subiewrx / Sheabutter

Little update....

Had a minute to snap a couple crappy cell phone pics ... These pictures show some of the different stages that the pods go through during the "Blending" phase, and also shows the textured coating on the single pod.

These 3 pictures show the steps of the blending phase. Lots of glazing/ sanding done here!! The first sloppy looking one is the first step. I try to use as much glaze as I can to make sure I can sand down to fill all gaps. There are always gaps/ holes after the first try, so the 2nd glaze gets most filled in. a 3rd glaze patches up small air bubble holes and any remaining bad spots. Lastly we apply a textured coating and it will be ready to prime/paint when the texture cures over-night!







Here you can see the black sharpie marks that I use to mark imperfections, and make sure I dont miss anything. Every pod is marked and inspected after the first 2 sanding phases, and the imperfections are glazed over and sanded a 3rd time. Pods are usually texture coated after this step as long as there are no more imperfections found after another inspection.

Re: A-Pillar Pods IM BACK!!! - 08Subiewrx / Sheabutter

It's like seeing a sonogram of my pillar before it arrives! ;D
Haha this is true! I have about 3 that are almost ready to ship... the other 5 are getting there! I guess I technically could start shipping them as the are completed even though my original plan was to ship them all at once lol

Honestly, your's is probably only a week behind the others! So even if I ship the first 3 one week the next 5 will be right behind it!

Re: A-Pillar Pods IM BACK!!! - 08Subiewrx / Sheabutter

Yeah I have two now, one im working on myself and one that i got from another member that lives semi local to me (about an hour away) over the summer. He said it was you guys that made it. He never used it cause he never got two gauges for it. He test fitted it and that was about it. He had a silver 09, i cant remember exactly but i believe his name started with a K, i wanna say Kamil or something close?
