Default SIG Coverall

Who has used SIG coverall?

How well does it go around curves?

How much does it weigh with two coats of dope?

Does the dope bleed through?

How much does it shrink ( I plan to build a Big Lazy Bee )

Thanks
Francis

Francis,

There are a number of threads that will answer all your questions concerning Koverall, the application thereof, and the finishing. As to the weight, it depends on you application process, as to the bleed through question, again it depends on your application process. Koverall goes around corners nicely, and I have used it for years, with great success.

Have a look in the question and answer forum, or in the Vintage and Antique forum under Waco YMF.

I am old school when it comes to cover. Not to say I do not use plastic iron on, because I do and have for many years. Still hate it. The Koverall is a great covering material and alot more work than plastic or pre-finished fabric. But Koverall is worth all of the work. You could cover a pencil with one piece. Read up with all the threads that are available on using this and you will have a wealth of knowlege. I will use Koverall whenever possible and only use plastic when I absolutly have to.
