Stronger and less sticky...
I started re-working the tarantula tonight, and it's slow-going (but going well). A couple of the legs had some small stress-fractures, and having it back in my care allowed me to repair them (before they worsened).
Once the cement has set (overnight) I can remove more of the tacky clear-coat.
The mineral spirits I have to use to remove the old clear-coat (that I shouldn't have used in the first place; hindsight, don't ya know!) is some nasty stuff, and I have to take frequent breaks.
Anyway, when it's (re)done, it's going to look (and last) better than ever!
