Sanded and cleaned the bed of the Brat, then sprayed primer on the bare metal areas, taped up the rear window, removed the chrome pieces, used three can of the spray can bedliner, turned out pretty good. Will upload picture tomorrow. Also worked on one wheel getting off the black tractor paint that was brushed on. Found some good paint stripper at Home Depot that also came with a spray bottle. It took two applications, but now down to bare metal. Will prime and paint tomorrow, should look a whole lot better.
Also got back my newly rebuilt distributor($105) all new parts and bushings. After three attempts of lining of the distrubutor, sweet victory, the old car fired right up. Runs much much much better, no more backfiring, the timing marks are steady, and no longer smells like raw gas. Still some fine tuning with the idle and mix adjustments, but will take it back into the emissions later on this week to finally get real plates. The guy who rebuilt the distributor was amazed the car would run at all with how bad it was. Oh BTW, the name of the shop is SNAP here in Salt Lake City, they rebuild hundreds a month, and they have quick turnaround, he had mine back in two days. Super good work!
cool. looking to line the bed of my brat this weekend. I know it's cold in Utah how'd it go with applying the liner?
