Corner treatments

What is the best way to prep a flox or micro outside corner. I had to really work at it to get all the foam off of the cured glass on the seatback.

What are others doing on this?

i use a large long neck dermal like tool with a tear drop shape course bit.

i go fast untill i hit white micro then i slow way down and cut away at it a little bit at a time. i have other air tools that work, but this is the best for me.

Just talking about the 1/4" or so for the flox corner. :P

Oh! OK - then I agree with the previous responder - I used a cone-shaped Dremel bit. You just have to be careful not to cut all the way through the glass. :o

I just trimmed out the triangular piece with an exacto knife (the large type) then trimmed off any excess that remained on the backside of the glass I was bonding to. Finish it up with a little sanding (I used a Fein for that) and you're good to go.

I'm confused, but thats nothing new. What foam were you taking OFF of the seatback? Maybe OUT of but not OFF of? Why are you removing foam off of something there?

Also, the flox fillets are used when you are stripping the seatback [and bulkheads] to the fuse sides with the 2" BID tapes.

Now think about it...wouldn't you rather LIVE your life, rather than watch someone else's, on Reality T.V.?

Get up off that couch!!! =)

any where you need the glass to bond to glass and you cant or don't have a 1" over lap to work with. and the seat back had such a joint at the bottom(?)

and you(we) carved out the foam and replaced it with flox (but you know that:p ).

So thats what was referred to. Check. Flox not micro.
