- Using a primer gun having a nozzle diameter of 2-3 mm, distribute the substance over the entire surface of the bumper model. Better to keep the gun at a distance of approximately 50 cm. Due to the fact that the gravgrass quickly hardens, it is usually applied in several layers. Next, you need to wait two hours. After this time, the surface will be convenient for further processing.
