    Every story and comment gets at least a few up/downvotes. Some up/downvotes are by people to fuzz the votes in order to confuse spammers and cheater, or new active members that post a lot, because the Downvoters join a gang and Downvote new members to keep their statis in place, or you could say this gang of Downvoters are no better than coman Bullies! A gang of online Bullies! This could start a Downvote war, once a list of all the downvoter's is complete, if a determanation is made that the downvotes were cast with personal intent.

    I need a ride.
    Gen 4 epoxy is good if you live somewhere where the temp is usually under 80* but above 65*. Its super thin, which is why it helps with bubble release. Its basically a little thicker than water, maybe canola oil consistency. If it gets too cold where you are wrapping or epoxying, it will make it hard to mix correctly. If its too hot, the epoxy becomes super thin and will drip everywhere, or harden super fast. Its a good product, but the warning about temperature range should be put on the bottle.

    There is Gen4 and Gen4 lite. I've been getting away with one less coat with Gen4 as opposed to Gen4 lite, Flex Coat lite, Envirotex lite, and D2. It's been awhile since I've used other brands so I can't give an accurate up to date comparison. But if these companies want to send me a samples I'd be happy to conduct a full review.
