31 Ford Roadster

Cheers, Looking forward to participating in some enlightening and educational discussion. I've got a 31 Ford Roadster which I bought as a project since the original resoration was tired and probably about 30 years old. I didn't have the time to start from scratch with an "old barn" project so this car is a good resto platform to start with. The frame and body are original but the frame has been boxed and the fenders are glass. It's an open engine and came with a 355 SBC aspirated with a Mooneyham 6/71 blower connected to a 3000 stall turbo 350 and a 64 Corvette independent rear suspension. The front suspension is Mustang II. The motor was starting to get a bit tired so I've upgraded to a purpose built stroked 383 blower motor. Now that I've got the performance up to standard I'm moving on to the body and interior. Looking for some advice on a candy pearl paint job and I'd like to hear whether anybody has had any experience using a product called Toughtek for interior upholstery work?

Welcome to HR.Com. You may want to got to the "Interior" forum and submitt your question about Toughtek. You'll get a lot better response there than making it a part of your "intro".

Always learning...and sharing what I've learned.
