I was told that epoxy primer is best for plastic and fiberglass. And also, you will never be able to paint laquer auto paint over acrylic spray paint.

Heat gun works ok, but I use Mothers Back to Black. It soaks into the rubber/plastic and restores them and protects them.

Give it a try, cause Ben, you know what my car looks like and how I keep up on it, so I'm not BSing ya.

As of today, I am replacing the rear axles boots. I have'em, and pop all 4 roll pins out, but now I need to devise a way to get the axles off the stubs, they are stuck.

I also took the mastash bar off to restore it and add a little suprise. ;)

I like it. If you are worried about exhaust under the car (I wouldn't), just put a simple down-turned pipe end on and you'd be fine.

Yeah I'm not really worried about it, as I have sealed upon sealed the entire underside with so many different products, including Fiberglass resin, coated with POR-15, then tractor enamel, then POR again, then NAPA rubberized undercoating, then NAPA Stone Guard (Hard rump roast paint) then tractor enamel again for the finale coat.

Rust is not a factor :grin:

Jon, did you get the Brighton already?

Ok that makes sense then. Because all i hear is people complain about the low amount of light omitted buy the factory lights, and i was thinking your going to put those on and possibly block even more. But yea for shows would be great.

If you wanna keep something precious, go lock it up and throw away the key.

If you want to hold on to those possesions, don't even think about me.


So, you type **** like that.

Yea, and that just came to mind. I've heard it said about him that he toured and did more shows than most. A touring machine.

Finished painting the passenger side Rocker panel and touched up my front pass door. Looks great.

Now on to the driver side, I have to get this stuff done before the Don Miller meet on the 18th. Better get busy! :banana:
