  1. I work at a long established restoration/custom shop in Melbourne fl. We finish prep. bare steel and apply Axalta 2580cr zinc chromate epoxy primer right away to bare steel panels. Besides corrosion protection you also end up encapsulating the body filler when you prime over it.
  2. Holy crap! It's hard to even comment on how dumb these people are. They must be related to the people that tap into gas lines with garden hoses.
  3. My sincere condolences. You were fortunate that you both shared a common hobby interest and I'm sure everything else.
  4. One other thing. Wear a respirator! especially with the 2k products. 3m 7192 or equivalent.
  5. Spray max has a lot of good stuff. I like the different gloss levels of black and the 2k matte and satin clear. The blender works pretty good, Axalta 790 is really good aerosol blender. Some paint supply stores can put 1k or 2k paint in their cans. I used the spray gun cleaner yesterday. Not as good as the 3m cleaner.
  6. Hello, It wont fit as is. Also the pad has no angle. I had a guy in melbourne fl. mill mine with a 3 degree angle. It was either 3/4" or 7/8" cut at the front. Fits under NACA hood with a 2" air cleaner. Cleveland block 71 style mounts. I believe CHI now has a lower pad option. Also make sure you get the right combination. The 208 intake will only fit the 208 heads for instance.
  7. I'm sorry I wasn't trying to imply anything. I was just putting out a contributing factor. Another one could be the person at the scale. I hope you get it to where you are happy with it.
  8. Hi, Here is a couple of things to consider. Higher priced clears use more expensive u/v screener that is crystal clear. The u/v screener in some clear has a yellow cast which is an issue in collision repair of white and light colored cars. Wimbledon white is creamy if you think what you have is too much so, maybe pick up a pint of another brand to compare. ... .. .
  9. Most auto paint supply stores and even amazon carry a line of hi end aerosol products called spray max. The 2k satin/ semi matte clear #368 0067 or the 2k satin black. are good durable products. Once activated they are good for 24 + hrs. Sometimes a good alternative to having to buy a pricey qt. Check out the website as there are alot of products, epoxy, weld through primers etc.
  10. I've never tried the rustoleum brand. Klean Strip Aircraft Remover at auto paint stores is the best in my opinion. Use it in a well ventilated area or use the right ammonium chloride rated respirator . It will hurt if you get it on you. Keep a wet rag handy. Only brush it in 1 direction. A trick that works well is put plastic wrap over it and it will stay wet longer and penetrate better. I'm lucky, my wife usually volunteers to strip parts and even whole cars
  11. Very sorry to see that happen to you and your beautiful car. Glad you are ok. Stand your ground when it comes to the insurance people.
  12. Hi, From the pictures it looks like a delamination issue. Maybe body filler skimmed over that area. There is one way to get to the source of the problem. Bite the bullet and dig in. Is your car already painted? If so, that sucks.
  13. The home made quarter panels are indeed are a fine example of craftsmanship. I dig that stripe. The red fade job on the seats is pretty cool too. Unbelievable what people try to pass off.
  14. Since joining this site I have bought parts from OMS and have recomended Don's company to others. If you drove by Ace hardware and saw a 70% off everything sign would you not stop in, or tell a friend? I was only answering Kilgon's question and didn't intend to slight a contributor.
