Hi,
   I finally got to spray the EPP on my fuselage.  I followed the procedures to a T, and was rewarded with a perfect coat of paint.  Great gloss, no orange peel and no runs.
   What I didn't bargain for was particles appearing in the finish.  They look like thin curly strands in varying lengths up to 3/8".  I suspect that the fiberglass furnace filters I have on two box fans to supply clean air shed.
   Has anyone else run into this?  I painted a stabilizer half after the fuselage with the fan speed lowered and it came out perfect.  I am replacing the filters with pleated paper ones and going to sand the fuselage and try again.
   I wiped down the fuselage with IPA after using a tack rag.  On the stab, I used the tack rag after the IPA.  I doubt if the wipers I used left lint, but can use some input.
Thanks,
Al
