    Question Shoe Goo Explained?

    OK, so what's the scoop with all the shoe goo advice I'm seeing in different posts? I understand it has something to do with improving the durability of the bodies, but let me make sure I've got this straight...

    One applies a layer of shoe goo on the inside of the body, and then puts dry wall tape over the shoe goo to form a stronger body after it dries? And this is applied to the entire interior of the body? How thick a layer of shoe goo does it need?

    And is it dry wall tape or dry wall repair patch material (the screen-like mesh)?

    Does anyone have a picture they could share of their shoe goo'd Stampede body interior?

    I'm planning on painting a new body soon, and installing LED lights, and am definitely interested in anything I could do to extend its life and durability!

    Thanks!

    I just did the flats and around the post holes. I also find putting the tape down first then spreading the goo over it easier.
