Life is good, as is retirement. I do miss my rod buddies down south however, especially Ray and Gulf Coast Cruisers. The rodders up here at least most of the ones I have met so far are not builders, they buy high dollar rides then flip them.

Thanks OLNOLAN

Wow

Hey Vince, What a ride, you deserve to be proud of yourself. The car looks like someone who has a special touch. I like the comradeship displayed in this build, it seems that new and old have followed it. It's what I think this forum should be about, or made of, however you want to put it. A completed rod should be celebrated. Cheers, Olnolan
P.S.- Working out the bugs will be the best part, project is done!!

===================================

Oh I have seen and had calls on some fine cars where the paint was just totally destroyed because of those things.

Then again only a person with a fine car is going to use them.
The worse ever, I saw, was a 57 Chevy, that had a paint job that would make you lay down and cry for, well the owner took the car home had one of these bra’s made for it, before the car was done, so day he took car home he waxed the area where the cover fits 4 times over the fresh paint and then put the cover on.
One month later, it looked like he had applied paint stripper and then covered it up while the stripper was still wet.

One common call I get about once a year, is someone with a yellow car and they take the cover off for winter and the paint where the cover was does not match the rest of the car.
Only certain yellows will do this but some yellow tints will adjust with light, seems to me DuPont use to tell shops before matching a yellow keep car inside for either 24-48 hours before painting. The yellow ones will work out there own problem with time in sun light.

Always make sure your car cover “is not” waterproof! Water resistant, ok but that does mean water will seep though a little and that is what you want.

302 Z28 I only use it when on long drives, short drives I do not. I never keep it on for long periods and remove it after driving. Thanks for the compliment, you had a lot to do with how it came out. Your advice was invaluable.

BarryK Vince, the car looks beautiful!

One small piece of advice would be about those fender bra's or whatever they are called.
I know they serve a purpose but I would strongly recommend when not driving you take them off.

They may not cause a problem but over the years i have seen many cause a problem and most of the problem was when the car was stored with them on, changes in temperature or wide swings seem to play the biggest roll.


No different then the paint being waterproof, to a point it is, so leave your hood in a river for a month and pull it out, it will be fine, leave in 3-6 months without coming out and it will start bubbling.

Ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!

When a counter person advised you against DC3000, they did you right. That is a fast production clear. Not what I'd use for an all-over either.
It wasn't a counter man that advised me against using it, it was Barry Kives of Southern Polyurethane's. The PPG counter guy was trying to sell me that stuff.

It's not Lizard Skin, it's a home made concoction of phenolic micro spheres and exterior latex paint. It is working very well, last summer the Vintage Air unit froze us out. We had to turn the blower to it's ;lowest setting and the T-Stat up.

The DCU2002 goes on like glass if the gun is set properly and the air pressure is sufficient. It needs to be cut & buffed within the first couple of weeks of application or it gets as hard as concrete. It is not a production clear as most of PPG's are. Get the spec sheets on PPG clears and read them, most are designed for production shops or to be used in a forced heat drying booth. I cannot say enough good things about 2002, I am by no means a pro painter but I achieved excellent results with it and highly recommend it.

PS It has been my experience that the counter people at the paint jobber will steer you to the wrong product that you need, and actually know very little about their products.

Vince is this the car in your post? and if I remember right you sprayed LIZZARD SKIN in side. What kind of heat relief did you get as I know its hot there as it is here. I guess I will find out if its worth the money if I ever get my 37 out of the paint shop. I told my buddy I was not in a hurry as I know better then to hurry a good painter that works at the right price but I would like to get it back together this summer.
