Never silicone, dow u-428 on ebay. Industry standard taught to me by netherlands companies. I have ryobi cordless caulk gun, love it. You can fix zillion things around house with the u-428.

Rotozip if not but few layers of carbon. Small diamond dremel cut off wheel, die-grinder (harbor freight) with 4&1/2” cut off wheel.

The composite world is easier on tools that metal, i blow them off with air after each use.

Don’t be home without these two also: this belt sander works great from harbor freight, stuff i do with it is gentle. It will last long and belts too. The flex german buffer is money well spent.

I’ll tell ya my invention here saves (“your fingers to the bone sanding”) ya on contours or dimple areas.



Harbor Freight tool and implements:
1) the lil blk cutter that comes with tool with hole drilled in it.
2) the lil yellow velcro thing next isle over. Just bolt it on.
3) choose high quality sand paper/pads from auto body shop warehouse supplier
