Eastwood 2K Ceramic Chassis Black

Has anyone used this product? If so, how did you like it. It sounds like a pretty good idea to me and I will be needing to paint my chassis soon. I can't powder coat it because we are welding the body to the chassis.

Strength. Someone built a '61 Galexy in the Team Kileen Build Book, I think they called it "Starliner" and they did the same thing.

No, but it has a GM 572 and should be pushing 650 -675 once we get the fuel injection on it. My son may have a problem if he ever needs to take the body off some time in the future, but it should be fine for me.

Powder Coat

I've been having my parts powder Coated for 5 years now and the best black I can find is a Diamond Vogel Product. They have an Ultra Gloss Black (product number ET-9390) that will knock your socks off. If you really want it to be tough use a primer first.

I used it on my truck and I was less than impressed. Seemed to chip very easily.

The problem may not be getting the body off the frame, a problem that may come up sooner is the fact that any body work on the car has a much better chance of cracking with the frame being mounted solid with welds...other problems would be rattles developing, it'll be harder on any glass in the car...unless this is going to be a track only car, install poly urethane body mount bushings and enjoy the car longer without redoing some areas that could be effected by a body being welded to the frame.
