          Agreed! Nice track in a smaller area too, what size is your layout, Carrera track or?

              SlotCat, thanks so much for watching and posting! The track is fifty-five feet in length and is Carrera track that has been painted. I'm so pleased that you like it!

              JerzeyGuy, thanks so much for watching and posting, if you want to see how I do panel lines, here is a video where I illustrate the method I use:



              I hope this helps!

                  Hi John - great video tips for the Future floor finish......I have always been curious about that product. I had a few dumb questions:
                  - you showed a product under the "Pledge" brand name. Is that the same as the Future product?
                  - do you find that the Future finish yellows over time?
                  - how long does it usually take to dry, and how many coats do you typically apply to a slot car?
                  - what do you use to clean the brush you use? Is it water based?

                  I have been spray clear coating some cars, and that can be a pain, so I am keen to try the Future clear finish! Thanks RvE

                    RvE, Thanks so much for watching and for posting!

                    No such thing as a dumb question! Allow me to do my best to answer your questions:

                    As far as I know, yes, in Canada, the Future floor polish product is marketed under the 'Pledge' brand.

                    I have used this product on a lot of my cars and, as of yet, has not shown any discolouration on any of the cars coated.

                    The drying time is between twenty to thirty minutes depending upon temperature and humidity, the higher the ambient temperature and lower the humidity the shorter the drying time.

                    I usually apply two coats.

                    The Future product is water based, brush cleaning is done with warm water.

                    I encourage you to give this product a try, choose some parts and or bodies to practice on, light coats and patience give the best results!

                    It would be great to see some of your 'tests' when you decide to give it a try!

                    I hope this helps!

                    Thanks again
                    😀
