Today I cut the shelves to their final length then I started to spray primer on them.

I used Zinzsser BIN primer.

I had read the European datasheet that called for cleaning with water.

Of course I’m not in the EU.

I added water to the mix and it turned into what looked like cottage cheese. I was pretty certain that it was a write-off.

The cleaning regimen was to use either a 50-50 mix of water and ammonia or to use denatured alcohol. I was plum out of both.

So off to Home Depot I go.

I’m amazed that things didn’t try to a crisp.

But it works. Even the tip.
