cactuspwr, thats how they do it here with one exception, after the pant is dry they run a street sweeper over to clean up any excess glass beads. I know this because when they repaved a road near me I was one of the first to use the new surfus. I came around a corner from a stop sign and my scooter slid from side to side and went down. I broke my leg and when the rescue responders came to get me they were sliding around trying to walk. One of the construction men told him the painters forgot to send the street sweeper to clean up the glass beads. The painters insurance company reimbursed my insurance company and sent me a check to cover my deductible. When they sent my check to cover my deductible they asked me if I had a lawer and when I said I didn't need one as they had paid all the expenses they said the case couldn't get closed until I was compensated for my pain and suffering. This was the painters insurance company telling me this. I ended up with $20,000 in my pocket, my scooter fixed, a new helmet, a police report saying I was not at fault and all expenses paid.
