More music reviews, and interview with j.f.a., spot checks at
some new so cal parks, product
reviews, road sodas, some sick
art, and anything else we had
lying around. Hesh Jon hit me up
a call this lady had some pool and
we could skate it. When we went
to ride it there was a sign up that said
the skatepark was closed. The owners
said that the pool was going to be demoed the next day and no more session was
going to be had. Well we rolled by again just to
it out and nobody seemed to be around when we
the door. We basically looked at each other and you could
just tell that we were
both thinking of the same thing “BARGE” Fifteen minutes turned into an hour so we made the
mad dash and split. This same situation repeated itself several more times until the pool was
actually demoed. I wonder if the people who lived there even had a clue that the second they
left for the day, their pool was like a mini pala in the suburbs of Laguna niguel. Well hope you
enjoy your read, issue three will be out before you know it. – NG

12 PACK OF FURY – During my freshman year
rotting away in my San Quentin designed dorm
rooms, a glimmer of light appeared down at the
Safeway one day. There was this white box with
red lettering, the word Wiedermans seemed to
stand for beer of royalty. The best part of these
beverages was that they cost $3.99 for a 12
pack and on each box there was a mail
in rebate for 2 dollars. One the checks
made it to my dorm mail box, I had discovered 12 packs for only $1.99.
The Schlitz Ice tall cans were close in value, but just don’t come close to
the full stomach you can achieve from a full 12 pack. Wiedermans beers
haven’t seen them in Southern California, but if you find them, expect a
similar beer experience as a 12 pack of Olympia’s, Pabst, or Hamms will
DEAD GUY ALE
ROGUE BREWING CO. – Man, one day we were skating
the Santa Rosa skate park, back before they
added all the flat ground and it was only half
tagged up or so. It was hot and I was in the
process of moving. We had the rented uhaul
truck, but when we went to rent the truck
we reserved, it had be rented accidentally
and so uhaul hooked us up with the largest rig they had. Well we stopped by the
liquor store and I saw the dead guy ale.
Bought up a few with a standard 12er of
Olympia’s or something. The dead guy ale
was not watered down brew. When its ice
cold on a hot day at a skatepark you can flow
around in, it is like drinking from the fountain
of youth. It is refreshing and gives you the bonus courage you need to get that last grind. The bottles are
pretty cool to check out while you quench your thirst.

“Nice” I told him.
So I’ve been working in a city in North County San
Diego now for around 6 years. For at least four and
a half of those years I have been watching an empty
pool at a house. On numerous occasions just sitting
in my truck debating in my head whether or not I
should rush it. I have knocked several times and
even talked to the owner. He told me no way due
to insurance reasons and also mentioned that he
Around a month ago our local UPS guy
comes in and notices a picture of an empty
pool that he is familiar with. He tells me that
it’s his buddies dads house and that the son
has held plenty of parties in that pool with jaalso tells me that the son had moved out of the house.
That afternoon I went knocking. No one was around. My heart starts beating pretty hard because I am realizing
that this may be my opportunity. I knock again. Nothing. There is a construction crew just out in front of the
house. They are drilling on the street. Lots of noise. Oh man, I gotta do it! So I go back to the truck and grab my
skate and broom. Lots of broken tiles and caked dirt in the deep end. There is only time for a quick clean up. My
heart is beating hard as I am pushing that broom as quietly as possible. The broken tiles are pretty loud but so is
the construction noise.
Ok, so I have swept the tile and dirt into a circular pile in the deep end. Leaving just enough space to skate around.
I get on my board and roll around the pile. It felt real good. The pools surface was very crunchy, but it still felt so
good. I start pushing a little harder with a nice carve around the deep. Make the light. Start working a line that
puts me into the pocket and throws me back into the deep. It is such a rush! Well, my time has expired. It has
been at least 10 minutes. A construction guy yells from the street “You should be swimming in that pool man, not
skateboarding”. He was kidding around, but that was it. I was out of there!
Man, I was so stoked. All these years drooling over this pool and I finally got it!! The best feeling in the world,
until....Until, I started thinking about more lines that are to be had in there. I need to go back. So I do. For 4 days
I am hitting this pool, 10 minutes at a time, sometimes going 3 times a day!! The more I go, the easier it gets to
nut up and go for it!
Well, the weekend finally hit. My buddy came over and I told him that we need to get in there. So we roll up on the
house. Lots of neighbors around. We see a light on in the house. I talk my friend into going up
and knocking. He goes. Maybe we can turn it into a permission!!
20 minutes later my bro comes back to the car. I guess he got an ear load. He tells me that people have been
breaking into his yard and that the cops rolled up just minutes too late. The neighbors were onto the perpitrator.
He again tells my friend that he will press charges to the full extent of the law.
Missed it by a couple of minutes. This pool will never be sessioned on a permission basis unfortunately. I sure
count my blessing. Got 7 sessions in a 4 day period. This works for me. Yes it was a really fun
pool. Now it’s time to let the dust settle in that neighborhood........for a while.

1. Best pool you ever rode?
The best pool that I have ever ridden
was Skate City’s clover pool. It was
probably only 8 feet deep but it was
so easy to skate and it had an endless
amount of lines that you could put together. The clover had many hips and
even a shallow end escalator. The most
memorable local shredders in Skate
City’s clover was Blender, Terence Yoshizawa, Lucero, Richard Armijo, Nash,
Grosso and Mountain just to name a few.
2. Where do you like to skate now
I skate Etnies most of the time with Celaya, Burns, Daniel, Andrew, Scottie, Paco, Spada,
Hawkins, Mahoney, Darren, and my cousin Derrick. In general, there is such a cool vibe at
Etnies. I also like skating that perfect kidney at the Encinitas skatepark.
3. Favorite music to skate to?
I like to skate to old punk, reggae or whatever is blasting at Etnies.
4. How many pools have you ridden in the last week?
Etnies Skull Bowl, Etnies Skull Bowl, Etnies Skull Bowl and Etnies Skull Bowl.
5. Current set up?
Scum Skates board (S-ONE, Hurley, Khiro and ATTIC stickers on the bottom), Tracker
149’s, Bones Swiss bearings, 60mm Bones SPF and I do use Powell rails (I’m still old
6. Future plans? I see ya rocking scum boards all the time.
Well, I repair computers for work right now but I’ll do whatever it takes to skate as much
as possible. I missed over a decade of skating when I quit during the 90’s and I just
recently realized all the fun I was missing when I started up again. I’m coming out with a
Scum Skates Model and I would like to enter some of the Masters contests too. Eventually, I would like to go back to CSULB and finish up my Bachelors Degree.
7. Best avoiding the law story
I’m good, I never have to avoid the law. One of my best friends is a police officer and he
skates too. If you skate at Etnies, he may be skating or standing right next to you.
8. Number of countries you have skated in.
It’s hard to say. Just off the top of my head 15. Italy was the best because of the good
9. If you could change any one event in skate history, what would it be?
It was during one of the 80’s Upland skatepark contests in the Combi pool. Chris Miller
locked up doing an air around the corner and fell all the way to the bottom directly onto
his head. One of the worst falls that I have ever seen, he could have died. To make
things worst, the fall was captured in the “Rage in the Badlands” skate video for everyone to see. I would like to change history and have Miller making that air instead of
10. Any advice for future pool skaters?
My only advice to future pool skaters is to wear all your pads and especially a helmet.
I’m 39 years old and if you want to skate at my age, you should wear your safety equipment now. Look at Salba. Probably one the best pool skaters of all time and he is
always padded up wherever he skates. Just be smart and pad up. It’s no big deal.
ARIES-(March 21 to April 20)For you, this month is all about investment. We’re not talking Google stock on E-Trade. Instead, focus on price/performance ratio. Your
$2.95 investment in a Spanish phrase book at your local used bookstore yields twofold dividends: (1) You become privvy to “insider
information” on the “safe” meat choice at your local burrito truck, and (2) You magically gain access to your own private apartment
bowl. Bueno... Your day of greatest pooltential is Sunday.
TAURUS-(April 21 to May 21)A lesson in tolerance is in store for you this month. You know that annoying 12-year old neighbor, the one who keeps coming over in
his Tony Hawk T-shirt and asking if you want to skate his X-Games launch ramp with him? You’ve been thinking about telling him to
get lost, but don’t do it! You are about to stumble on the finest kidney you’ve ever seen. Wanting to impress you, he is easily convinced
to remove the $350 in allowance money from his piggybank, enabling you to quickly drain the 3ft. of water in the hole. Everybody is
happy. Your day of greatest pooltential is Thursday.
GEMINI-(May 22 to June 21)Mercury is perfectly aligned with Jupiter this month. That’s good news for you, as you find yourself pulling the hugest frontside lines
ever over the ladder. Bring a camera, you’ll want proof!
CANCER-(June 22 to July 22)This month, your key to happiness is Milk-Bone dog biscuits. Dont ask why. Just keep a box handy in your car. Your day of greatest
pooltential is Monday.
LEO-(July 23 to August 23)Mum’s the word. Choose your words carefully this month, or a seemingly harmless phone call to your girlfriend could make you inadvertantly responsible for one of the biggest blow-outs in history.
Your day of greatest pooltential is Saturday.
VIRGO-(August 24 to September 22)Have you ever made a bong out of a milk jug? Let’s put it this way, “Necessity is the mother of invention.” You’ll want to kick yourself
when you come across a surprise find and realize you forgot to put the buckets and towels back in your car the last time you cleaned it.
But before you drive away, ask yourself, “What Would MacGyver Do?” With a little creative genius, and only the materials at hand,
you’ll find a way to empty that foot of scumwater, and get in a solid session before the pool is permanently filled the next day. Your day
of greatest pooltential is Wednesday.
LIBRA-(September 23 to October 23)Empaque Su Basura, my friend! You’re not the litterbug type, but this month, you go the extra mile, and your cleanup efforts thwart an
early shutdown by the owners. This keeps the pool going for another week... just long enough for you to bag that box on the left side.
Your day of greatest pooltential is Friday.
SCORPIO-(October 24 to November 22)Sorry, this is just not your month. It’s probably best that you avoid skating altogether. If you’re desperate, you might consider limiting
your skating activity to practicing rail slides on curbs... you know, the painted ones in the parking lot down by the hospital emergency
room. Your day of greatest pooltential is Saturday.
SAGITTARIUS-(November 23 to December 21)Jupiter will make an important move into your 4th House from your 3rd House on October 26th. Also, your next door neighbors will
move out of their house. The ameoba is all yours! Your day of greatest pooltential is Monday.
CAPRICORN-(December 22 to January 20)A little quiet time is good for everyone, and you are no exception. At a stoplight on your way to work this week, you take a moment to
savor the “sounds of silence” by turning down the Slayer and rolling down the windows. Amid the background noise, the faint sound
of barking wheels guides you to a well-kept secret. Enter on the side of the house and pretend like you belong there. They’ll just think
you’re another one of “Big Ernie’s” friends.Your day of greatest pooltential is Thursday.
AQUARIUS-(January 21 to February 19)Even though you’re an outdoor person, you might make an effort this month to engage in some indoor activity. Consider joining the local “Y”. They have a weight room, basketball courts, and yoga classes. Oh, yeah, and at the end of the hall is an empty pool that they’ve
drained for repairs. Your day of greatest pooltential is Saturday.
PISCES-(February 20 to March 20)Which came first? The chicken, or the egg? The planets can’t answer that question, Libra, but they do tell us this: If you’re chicken, that
egg’s never gonna happen. This is your month to overcome fears and take chances. If you want it, go out and get it. Your day of greatest
pooltential is Tuesday.

How many pools have you skated this month?
Don - Would have been one, but I had some surgery. Killer pool in Vegas (Brian
tore it up).
Brian — I think about four. The Wagon Wheel, Corey’s, the Combi at the Block and the
Skull Bowl at Etnies.
Best skate jam your band has played at?
Don — Any show back in the day with the Big Boys (Texas,
Brian — I’d have to agree with Don, but then also the time we
played Skatopia in Ohio. That place is anarchy paradise. Bowls,
beers and bros (with some skate sistas thrown in for good
measure). Not to mention the gunnery practice, setting cars
on fire, potato guns and howling at the moon. Also, we had a
good time playing at the Nude Bowl one night with a bunch
of other bands till the wee hours of the morning. Basically any
skate jam is a good skate jam...
Where do you want to see skateboarding go?
Don — Back to the streets/underground and away from the
soccer mom trip
Brian — I pretty much take it as it comes. Underground is nice
because it siphons off all the kooks and gets rid of all the corporate sell-out mularkey, but then I’m pretty much enjoying all the new skateparks they’re
building too. I try to look at the positives and not focus on the negatives, otherwise I’d be
one really pissed off dude. Of course, there’s
pretty much nothing that a few grinds on some
215s can’t cure...
Worst run in with the man?
Don — Flower Street ditch. Got a nice trespassing ticket (failing to yield to no peds sign or
something). Had to drive downtown and pay
$$ on that one. People were walking their dogs
past us (no ticket), but because we were skat-
Brian — Curiously enough it was for littering. Basically I tossed a plastic cup into someone’s yard after the cops busted this party and they put the cuffs on me and took me
downtown and put me in with all the drunks, muggers and thieves until 3 a.m. Then I had
to walk home about 10 miles because I couldn’t get a ride at that time.
What are your influences musically?
— Anything with a BIG Guitar. Early on Clash,
Damned, Pistols etc.
Brian — Early LA/OC punk. The Germs, The
Chiefs, Adolescents, Weirdos, TSOL, pre-Rollins Black Flag.
What type of fundraising efforts have you done
to help out the cause?
Don — We played several benefits to build the first sk8park in PHX (I consider it my park so stay outta my way when
I come there to skate it). We’re also going to play the Etnies park in
Augustto help keep it free.
Brian — We try to do whatever we can.
Brian — The Brigg in Huntington Beach on Sept. 4 with
Frontside Five. August 19th at Etnies Skatepark in Lake Forest. The Wasted Festival on Oct. 8-9 in San Bernardino.
If you could skate any one spot, past, present, future,
where would it be and why?
Don — The Florence pipes in AZ (circa 83). BIG pipe, super
smooth and best tranny to flatwall I have ever skated.
Brian — Yeah I’d probably have to second that. Besides all
that, they were downhill so you could really get cooking if
you carved it. Basically if you held your line, you couldn’t
help but go way over vert. That was the pipe that we had
on the cover of our Untitled record with our silhouettes.
Last book read?
Don — The Da Vinci Code (finally got
around to it)
Brian — Philosophy and Contemporary
Last trick you learned skating?
Don — Kind of a Jay Adams hand drag
pop out of the bowl and slam grind a
block at Etnies.
Brian — I’ve been pretty much trying to
get backside disasters on bigger and bigger stuff.
OJ 3 58mm
I got some OJ threes the other day and they couldn’t have come at a more perfect time since
my wheels I was riding wear annihilated. To make things even better these wheels were
58mm(my size) and a great shape(not to thin). I have tested these things out in pools, parks,
ramps, and your grammas house and they are the shit. These things are very fast and grip
when you need it on those sharp lines in slippery pools. On www.strangenotes.com there is
even a video that shows you how to dye them different colors so you can have tuff guy black
or poke it in the butt pink if you don’t like the color that they come in which is white. These
bad boys come in 58mm, 60mm and 63mm ,demand these at you local shop and get some

Nixon Watch - Fidelity
A couple of months ago a received a box from Nixon watches. I stopped wearing
a watch a few years ago because I always destroy them at a rapid pace. Well when
I opened the box I figured that there would be some bling-bling, yo-yo, Rob Dyrek
wrist wear but to my pleasant surprise the contents were all Black. This watch was
plain, simple and very comfortable to wear. It sucks if you have to take a watch off
ever time you skate because it’s uncomfortable. If this happens usually the watch
slowly gets fazed out of daily wear. Well it’s been a while now and the watch is still
on my wrist and not destroyed yet. If you need a watch check out www.nixonnow.
com there is something for everyone from bling bling to flat black Nixon has it all.Review Master General
Ogio - Ty Video Back Pack
Needing a new bag to house some gear might lead you to an overpriced photo shop for
a bag that doesn’t measure up to the cost. Ogio is not one of these bags. The backpack
that was sent over for review is the Ogio Ty Video Backpack. If you’re into videography
or photography, this is the bag for you. It can hold 2 vx 2100s of Canon GL 2s, plus lens,
batteries, your digital camera, clips for a tripod, and to boot a spot for your laptop, all in
a light weight back pack. If you skate and film, this is what ya need for any of your missions. The bag has a light system so if you’re a night owl, you can find what you need
with no hassle. Another tight feature is the inside cover of the back pack has four sleeves
for mini dvs which also are clear. You can read and find the tape you’re looking for in a
quick glance instead of digging through the pool dust in the bottom of your bag. Don’t
waste your money on one of the photo shop bags when you can rock this pack for a
reasonable price if you search around online.

out the details. I use two of these pumps and they have yet to let me down no matter what I was draining.
Once, one of them froze up while drainging the sludge. I took it apart and found a gopher head inside clogging
it up. That’s how the gphoer head received it’s name. These pumps are quiet, pump fairly quickly, and are easily
fixed or repaired. Definitley worth checking out if your in the market to add a pump to your gear.

This guy is the one you want to leave in a pool over night with no real worries if you lose it. You can use a
garden hose which youll find at your target and then dump it into the main drain hole usually found on the
outside wall by the kitchen sink. If you know your neighbors are gone for a few days, you could drain it with
this, skate it a few hours and toss the hose back in. They might trip to find the hose in the pool, but hopefully by
then its pretty full. Good Luck
Navigator trucks sent a set of trucks over awhile ago and it
little time to
get these things under a board since I usually don’t ride a 7.75 wide board
came along so it was time to try out these trucks. To begin we all know what
trucks we like
and most have a sworn alliagance to what ever trucks they ride . That being said these trucks turn really good,
grind really good and over all were great trucks. There are some pins that go thru the hanger and into the axle
to prevent slippage that happens with some other trucks that are out there. The Navigators seemed to be a
tad bit heavier than some other trucks but made up for that with the no slip axle pins. The only real down fall
for these trucks would be how they look.Some people told me that they couldn’t stand the bent hanger look
that these trucks have but when the same people rode the trucks they couldn’t tell the difference when they
grinded. If your tired of the trucks you’ve been riding or just want to try something different than check out a
pair of Navigators. Eventually they are rumored to be making bigger trucks as well as the smaller sizes. www.

Where you guys from exactly?
J: I live just on the outside of Venice, by Beethoven
and Venice blvd, that’s where we practice. Our
drummer Ashton and bassist Magic live in Venice and Harley our singer lives in Santa Monica;
home of the skate park Nazi’s.
How many pools are hit by Rabies
J: I hit probably like 4 new ones a month. I think
it was last January, I skated 8 new ones, what
Everyone in the band skates?
J: Ya, everyone does. Our bassist rides around
as a main source of transportation and I make
him skate on occasion. Our drummer hasn’t
skated in a few months but we’ve gone pool
hunting before and came up good, he used to
ride the skate park and a pool here and there.
Our singer is hardcore and rides a long board to
get around when he can’t take his parents car.
I’m the only one that’s really militant about going
out and finding ‘em and draining them. I found
really quickly how much people remember who
has given them a pool when they find a good one
of their own. One thing I was stoked on though
was summer of 2004 when I was really getting
into it and me and my buddy found this big blue
roman with sick tranny and air-able corners,
and the word got around like crazy, but it was
fucking cool because I was meeting all these
people that fucking ripped, and it was like oh
that’s how you do that and blah blah blah. That
pool is the one on the cover of Juice’s last issue
with fingers’ gnarly fsg. One thing I’m big on is
giving credit where its due.
You guys are pretty sick, why you
J: No reason really besides its looks funny and
catches peoples attention. I got it at the liquor
store down the street for like 99 cents over a
year ago now, I’m bummed out cause it’s getting
too small and ripping.
so sick looking.
I don’t think your bass player changed his clothes since the
last time you played at the park either?
J: No he definitely didn’t. He doesn’t really have the need
to change his clothes. He lives in a house with only burned
cd’s and canned food.
What are the influences behind your music? American hardcore
punk: Black Flag, Bad Brains, the Minutemen, Fear, JFA,
Misfits, Suicidal Tendencies, Cro Mags, Minor Threat, and
that’s really just an over generalization I could keep going
for days. There’s also some Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry, and
Robert Johnson in there.
J: Ooooooo, perfect tranny, perfect coping, you could get going so fast with the middle end pocket and would
never have to step off your board. It was insane; almost the whole pool was grind-able. Words can’t describe
Where can people find your music, schedule, shows, etc. at?
J: All and anything you’ll ever need can be found on www.rabiesband.com or www.myspace.com/rabiesarmy
We’ve got 5 mp3’s to download, several picture galleries including a pool skating gallery which is always getting updated, and a look at our insanely sick t-shirts drawn by Bart Saric which people can get for 8 bux white
and 10 bux red or yellow, support the cause, and we’ve got a lot more shit coming.
Future plans? You should make a syringe shaped skate board, then make it into a guitar and rock it.
J: Ha, that’d be sick. We’re doing a west coast tour in april but not every show is comfirmed yet. We’re working out offers we’ve gotten to be on several different compilations, and were gonna continue to give away
as much free shit as possible like our demo’s, stickers, and hopefully soon we’ll have buttons to give away,
because nobody likes to pay for stuff. I actually burnt out the motor on my cd drive because I’ve burned so
many demos, around 1000 in the last year or so. Now the cd drive can barely pull it self in and out on its own,
ha. Also a 7” will very soon be here!
What is you music about? Why?
J: Most of it is about the people I see everyday, the really shitty people everywhere. We’ve got songs about
how shitty all these wiggers that skate are. One thing that really pisses me off is the wanna be gangster skaters
that have skate ads in magazines where they’re just standing there looking cool, no skating at all, just lame.
Our songs range from things like suckers that get pussywhipped to people who think they’re smart and can
pull things off but they’re just a joke. Really just about all the people I don’t ever want to be like or be associated with. Also one of our new songs is about the current status of dogtown and how many stupid little kids
carry around little banana boards and they’ve got their dogtown shirt and jacket their low cut vans and long
blond hair, and they can’t ride their board for dogshit, just full on posers.
If you could open up for any band, who?
J: That’s tough, most of the bands we listen to and are influence by aren’t even together anymore but for
bands that are still playing today, it would be like Circle Jerks, JFA (which already happened at Etnies and was
fucking sick) Dr. Know, Fear plays every now and then, same with MDC, and there’s D.I., TSOL, The Adolescents, plenty more and also there is a good amount of young bands coming up that put on a good energetic
show, if band’s aren’t visually entertaining live then they only belong on a cd or album. That’s something we
believe pretty firmly in and therefore give every show all we got. It’s sick to see a band roll in, knock off the
pool dust, and rock the house down. Check out their music on these websites – www.rabiesband.com and
you can find us on www.mohawkradio.com and www.myspace.com/rabiesarmy and thank you Nick for having us at etnies these 4 times now we love playing the park, you got a lot of good shit going.

Fuck! Now here’s something worth listening too, I even check out their web page at www.
fingerrecords.com. From the looks, they’re a bunch of boracho’s! being with living sunny Santa
Ana, California where every house comes with bars over the windows and wonderful spray
paint art everywhere!
A living paradise! The music has a mid-80’s orange county hard-core sound to it with a twist of
manic Hispanic. I’ve seen these guys live, every member in the band yells their fucken brains

It is rad today when you go to a show, expect the typical bands to play the same old
crap, and when you least expect it you get blown away by overall sickness. Fast, tight,
loud, quality vocals, just good stuff. The audience was throwing down applause after
every song where the previous bands had earned no more than background noise
status. Bring your ears plugs if ya hate feedback inbetween songs because the guitar
amps howl awaiting the next plague of destruction. A must have 7 inch for your

Build and Repair
This month we are going to demonstrate how to patch small holes at your local
park as well as keep that skate park pool coping grinding epic. Sometimes the
city doesn’t see that chunk that’s ruining your entire line. The best product for
small scale holes is called Fast Steele and is available at home depot for 3 bucks
Basically start by cleaning out the hole or chunk that needs repair. Mix together
like putty a piece of the epoxy large enough to fill the hole in. Use your hands
and work the putty into the hole until it is as smooth as you can with your bare
hands. It sets quickly so you can sand it flush with the concrete surface in about
20 minutes. This epoxy is good for chunks under metal coping, holes, cracks, or
any imperfection you find. It lasts for a year or so unless there is a lot of moisture
in the environment where it may need more frequent replacing.
Pool coping in your local spot is best left untouched and raw to grind. If
you’re local park has a pool with pool coping, or ledges with exposed cement
that gets grinded, applying some sauce may make it last years longer than
expected. Curbs, quarter pipes with no coping, any spot that gets grinded
down can last and grind much better with a coat of sauce.
This is the good stuff. Hit up the spot you want to sauce with some sand paper and sand it fairly smooth. Make sure to wear down the paint or crap that is
already on there before you paint on this 1 part epoxy clear coat. Use a brush
and paint it on kind of thick. Let it dry about 20 minutes and wallah, you got
your self a kick ass grind area that’s going to last like it is supposed to.
Next issue we are going to go over how get rid of that pesky
light in favor of perfectly smooth cement. Stay tuned…………
