	The acrylic form doesn't need any coating prior to winding the 
secondary on it.  I simply wound mine on the form directly and then put 
two coats of "Behr Super Build 50" on it, which is a material originally 
formulated for giving bar tops a thick clear coating.  It works great if 
you can keep the form rotating while it cures, about 24 hours.  Good
