This two-hour video, hosted by Ray Stits himself,(OOPS..that video has been replaced by the EAA with an easier to understand version) shows every step of the Poly-Fiber system covering a full scale Cub.

No, they all cost about the same! Although dope costs less per can than Poly-Fiber, you use twice as much dope as Poly-Fiber. Price them out for yourself. You'll find they pretty much even out. Epoxies on the other hand are much more expensive.

Surprising little. It depends on your painting abilities but, Warren Cross, President of QSAA, painted a 1/3 scale Extra 300 and only added 16 ounces to the airframe.
We really strongly discourage that idea. Over the years, automotive paints, even the ones with flex agents, crack when used over fabric. We sell two paint systems: Poly-Tone, a repairable semi-gloss paint that can be buffed to a nice satin sheen (we offer a high gloss clear coat in Poly Tone); and Aero-Thane, a high-gloss "wet-look" polyurethane. Both are specially formulated to flex with the fabric and resist cracking for years. Your automotive paint may look great when you first put it on, but you'll hate yourself later when it starts falling off.
