    One more thing. Am I supposed to let this stuff dry before sizing?

    With Aqualube and mixtures, they are a dry film lube. Maximum effects are when the stuff is dry. If you have wipe off, you used too much and is wasted.
    Lubing requires just enough applied, to cause a barely visible ghostly film.
    About 1 gram of dry lube (when adequately diluted) should cover an area of about 40 square metres of surface.
