    A kit will do about 20 ears or a total of 10 deer. Not as cheap as bondo, but switching to earliners years ago gained a lot of new customers for me.

    Added instructions to first post on page one for those that do not have a lot of experience with earliners and two part adhesives.

    Is it like a thick epoxy or a thin pourable material. I had trouble with one thing I tried because it was too thick to spread and by the time I got it spread it was already kicking. I don't remember if it was ear magic or what. I am curious and will try it if it is very thin and easy to pour or spread. By easy to spread, I mean like mayonnaise not like magic smooth.

    Thanks Ron for the thumbs up! Boarhunter67, at room temp it is pretty much a thin pourable material......not a thin as master's blend or water, but very easily spreadable. It is thinner than mayonnaise. You can actually thicken it up like a paste if you need to by keeping it in the fridge.

    I tried it and it works just like he said. The only issues I had were that it was extremely difficult to squeeze out. I ended up taking the lids off. Also, I doubt I'll get nearly as many ears out of the container as mimes. I coated the earliner as thinly as I usually do, but I've done two ear sets and the bottles are already half gone. I really like how they worked though.

    Thanks for the review Boarhunter. If you are having trouble squeezing out the adhesive, simply cut a little more off the tip of the applicator bottle, making a larger opening. Part B remains very flowable in cool temps, where Part A will get like a thick gel in a cool environment. Simply keep your shop at room temp or if Part A does get too thick for your preference, drop container in a cup of warm water and it will return to a flowable liquid shortly. Another important tip is to store the bottles upside down with the tip cover securely fastened. I do recommend that you mix Part A and Part B in the little one ounce clear mixing cups. You can see exactly how much you are mixing and get the amount down to a fine art. Right now I am mixing a total of 3 drams.......just a little less than 1/2 ounce and still getting plenty of coverage and good results on a medium sized whitetail earliner. I have read where some guys are mixing 3/4 of an ounce for a medium whitetail liner.....that is overkill and a waste of product.

    Thanks. I did keep them at room temp., but my shop is in the mid '60's. I will try the warm water in a cup trick. Also I mixed them on a paper plate. I will start to mix in some one oz. cups. There were no directions so I just guessed on the amounts. I didn't have any left over, but I did coat the 2 sets of elk liners liberally.
     
  19. Tried it on two sets of Whitetail earliners and it worked great. I mixed in some " Natural Flesh " paint while I was mixing the 2 parts together, and the results were very nice. No drumming and the ears are a nice light fleshy color. Thanks again!

    Thanks for the product review Rob. Boarhunter........I would say that liberally coating two sets of elk earliners would be the same as 4 sets of medium whitetail liners.
