Meant to say at the end there, either wet on wet or left to cure and blocked back as the first stage before high fill etc. I highly recomend Protec / Epotec 408 epoxy primer. Nothing gets through it (water, air) and nothing bleeds up through it either so it's great to seal old paint jobs off before top coating with new stuff. Sticks to EVERYTHING. ..and it's cheap too.

Would be good to use as isolator then? Or is going over acrylic not advisable?

Didn't take many photos today, one of the rear body braces was repaired and welded back in, the inner passenger rear sill has bee made and test fitted (no photo) and the passenger front floorpan has been made and is almost ready to fit (but I didn't take any photos of it after the beads were formed or the panel was shaped) so I'll take some more photos tomorrow 24940b780c7bf288fea9a124a9e19628.jpg94e5527fe35adac2c94b434e38d7782b.jpg987464b997fed32ddc686f9002fe2296.jpg65c4bdb26ddb3af087380afc519a5e38.jpg

Yep will go over all solid substrates. As long as its not peeling, flaking, dirty.. the usual.

 

Edit: probably not freshly laid acrylic though as that would gas off under it and make it peel like 2k clear probably. Wait till its hardened up then go for it... that's what she said anyway

Just because here's a couple of photos of the cuzzo on stock wheels and hubcaps, I took it to one event like this, at one point in time I had to wait a month to get a pair of 245 60 15s, and one photo in its normal attire

Mammoth job, but you're chopping through it. This thing is going to be noticeably more solid minus all that rust and with all that new steel. Neat job on the creases and folds etc. Definitely watching this one :ph34r:

Cheers dude, I'm lucky to have my old man to teach me this kind of thing, at least I can pay him back by teaching him how to use his lathe properly
separate chassis was holding this one together quite well.

Barely, when we started you could pick up the passenger cowl and move it up and down 4 inches before the chassis moved, now with just the floors and inner sills the body is stiff enough to stay on the chassis when you move it

There's less work in this than my pickup, so that's something, looking how bad the car was I'm glad I pulled it off the road when I did, if it had spent the last 4 years on the road instead of undercover it might have been a whole lot worse
