Re: Noob build

Sounds exactly like this stuff from Eastwood. It goes on like paint which allows it to seep into all those you want it to go places then dries to a self healing film. anti-rust.jpg Look at a product like this: https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4513/38090869332_9e31f7b364_c.jpg https://www.kbs-coatings....

Re: Noob build

Welding will simply bubble the POR-15 and expose raw metal for a fresh coast of rust. I'd recommend going back in through the back side and adding a fresh coat in those areas. For sure, it's the joints that are not accessible with the paint brush that I'm wondering about. The weld at the underside ...

Re: Noob build

And it is done, coated the inside of the joints with POR-15. It will be a challenge to touch it up in the weld areas... any recommendations?

Pro Form Undercoat - sprayed it with an undercoating gun at 80PSI and roughly 75 ft. of air hose.

Re: Noob build

"This thing is pretty much rust free" ... Famous last words. Well a few bubbles in front of the rear wheel arches have turned into another fun exercise. Glad this was found with the car still on the rotisserie, got the passenger side inner rocker done yesterday. POR-15'd the inside before ...

Re: Noob build

And undercoated. It's a bit more textured than I'd like but it will do.

Re: Noob build

Here we are, a couple of long nights later the epoxy primer is done. Who would have thought cleaning the bottom of a car could be so much fun... Tonight it's undercoating and then the underside is done.

Re: Noob build

Today was productive. The car is on the rotisserie and the under body work will start tomorrow morning. 98.jpg 100.jpg I also made a little exhaust fan setup for when I blast and undercoat, nothing fancy just three old fans from a refrigeration unit. I'll see how that works when it's time to do coat...

Re: Noob build

Byron, That's good feedback and similar to what I have in mind. I have a 25' long coiled copper pipe that fits in a bucket with two quick connects on the end. I'll fill the bucket with cold water when painting / sandblasting is happening to cool the air sufficiently before it goes into the dryer. So...

After a bit of a hiatus due to a renovation renovation and moving back to the island, as well as fixing everybody else's stuff first, the car is finally at the shop and getting some attention. She's all stripped down, I made the rotisserie attachments and it should be in the air this weekend. Been s...
