Thanks. Could BH throw a comment to the compatibility & plan?

1. Surfex 10-20% wash + 24h drying time
2. S50 to underbody + 24h drying time
3. autobalm to the metal sides
3. UB to underbody on top of S50 + second coat after 24h
4. UC to the beam

S50 is for cavities - anything that will be exposed, I'd suggest UB or UC.

Auto Balm will do a job on the sides, I don't know how long it would last vs UC, I'm sure BH will be able to advise.

Thanks. I know S50 is mainly for cavities, but I could use it as a superb primer for UB, if there is no problem to layer these products.

BH themselves will know best, but I have the impression that the best primer for UB is another coat of UB

Er, no, don't put UB on over S50, it's a variation of the same thing, just use UB when you need it.

A bit mixed information, just found this one from the archives:

You can Layer the products, either UB over UB, S50 over S50 or UB over S50.

Yes, notice the specific ordering there.

They are the same product, but with a hardening film on the UB, it just doesn't help to lay down S50 and then UB on top.

You *can* do that, but it would be because you realised you should have put UB there in the first place.
