    My first time using Acraglas, I used the release agent the way the instructions said to. When dry, I thought it was an unnecessarily thick coating and it came off the steel real easy. When I was in the military, we used automotive paste wax on the parts we didn't want to get stuck when doing fiberglass repairs. Just like waxing a car, paste goes on, let dry, buff it to a shine. It's very thin and the Acraglas will even have the texture of the steel surface in it, which is a very close fit. Can't get much tighter a fit than that. I've had a couple that didn't want to come loose at first, but some judicious tapping with a plastic mallet popped them out. If they're more stubborn, put them in the deep freeze overnight. They'll come loose. Just make sure all the correct parts are, in fact, coated.
