Drat, I was enjoying the whole joke, even though Preston is a Spoiler! 
Then I discovered that I had an actual question regarding Cementex 
L-200. Robert, have you done any measurements to see what the ratio of 
shrinkage is? I have always been told that Neoprene is 10-15%, though I 
haven't actually measured it myself. Flexible latex is quite a bit 
less, maybe 5%. Where does your L-200 and Filler Combo fit in?
