Block sanded the poly primer today.
Guide coat and then 150 grit on 12" block for straight sections and a round Durablock for the rounded areas.

Went well for the most part. You can see some black epoxy primer showing through and a couple of small areas of metal exposed.

Cleaned it up and shot 3 coats of 2k build primer on it. Using my new AirGunsa 2.0 AZ3HP primer gun resulted in runs in my primer. It really puts out the material compared to my old EVO4018 1.8 tip.

Yes, I do like it. Works fantastic for poly and high build primers.
I recently upgraded to a metal cup as the plastic one it comes with is a bear to keep clean.

Yeah, looks like it would be a good match for Tamco's high build epoxy and also some special effects we would like to do with thinned down bedliner. Where did you find decent pricing on it?

I believe I purchased it from jbtools. However I did a quick search and didn't see the exact same model in stock. The new version is twice the price of $135 that I paid.
There was one for sale Made in Italy for $140 on ebay.
