Use this on everything. Painted tons of rc bodies with this stuff. It leaves no residue and cuts very well. I highly recommend it and save you the time.
Available at hobby shops.

Nice work. I'm soo jealous. picked up an'86 that is pristine, but would kill for a roll bar and a pair of seats just cant seem to find any. keep at it !
yep:cool:alot of people are, have roll bars and jump seats for my dads 79 brat and my 85 brat:D, there rare even here in oregon hope u can find them and keep your brat rust free, its a challenge to get rid rust once it starts even where the roads don't get salted, my 85's going to get the third eye setup sometime i just bought the grill, third eye(passing lamp, off road light, scyclopse, ect.) ,and bezals:headbang: also i got new tail lights:Donly for $150, your going to be jealous when i get my brush guard setup like i want on my 85 and the factory brush guard for the 79 brat

where it was
in the green house above the one it was
mostly apart now
most of the engine compartment apart/before washing
after washing and taking apart the engine compartment the rest im going to cover and tape
perfect time for ej swap right:lol: but staying with stock engine to keep original its going to look great once painted and put back together and done;)

Very cool and keeping it stock.. I like that... Keeping it original color or something different???
not sure yet but think my dad wants it green but the green we bought is really dark so might pick out another color or mix in white to make it lighter and need to pick up some more primer first
