Just to make sure of what it is, what are you UK or Europeans talking about when you talk about using PVA?

And what thinner are you using when you say, "thinned 50/50"?

Thank y'all in ad-vance, boys.

G'day Mate,
PVA is Poly Vinyl Acetate, or white wood working glue, I thin it with water, because it is water soluable.

PVA is ALSO a type of mold release that will release a fiberglass part from a mold by soaking the mold and the part in water.

Ahh yes;

Another fine example of how we may all be speaking English,
BUT;
We are NOT speaking the same language.

I always remember a quote attributed to Bernard Shaw: "The British and Americans are two peoples separated by a common language."

getting pi$$ed--drunk in England, angry in USA

and "getting stuffed" too much to eat in the USA, Down Under , well,......

Hood and bonnet, trunk and boot.

But I still don't see how you get "Wooster" out of Wor-chest-er

During a useless lunchtime conversation about the Revolutionary War, a co-worker of mine declared, "If we didn't win that war, we'd all be speaking British!"

They don't have anybody who sounds like John Wayne???? But they could have cast the gecko without problem. And not needed to put him in a gecko outfit.

Could it be they don't know who "Elmer" is?

"Bordens" - A company famous for dairy products has a mascot called Elsie the cow. When they started making white glue, they wanted to capitalize on Elsie's fame, but they also wanted something more "macho" than a cow. So they invented "Elmer the Bull".
