496CHEVY3100 [QUOTE=1971BB427;2500993]Latest project is the roof on my '69 Burb. I've noticed the clear coat was failing, and lots of flaking going on up there. Since the lower paint looks pretty decent, I figured I'd strip the clear off, and make the Burb two tone with an off white roof.
Got up there to strip it and discovered more issues than paint! There are 4 spots that the paint has cracked in a circular shape! It appears the old Burb was an ambulance at one time in it's early life, and some knucklehead didn't properly delete the holes for emergency lights, and sirens!
I dug out the cracks today, and underneath was the beginning of rust creeping at the bad metal joint. The holes range from about 6"-7" down to 1.5", at 4 locations. After digging them out, I saw some previous owner had pop riveted sheetmetal underneath the hole, and then ground the stubs off the rivets on the top side. No sealer used, so moisture wicked under the paint and filler, resulting in the patch going bad. I ground them out and then hit them with rust neutralizer. After neutralizing them, I again ground the edges smooth, and tack welded the 4 fillers in, so they're permanent. After that I mixed up epoxy resin, and brushed the joints, just to ensure no pinholes would appear later and ruin the paint.
Just have to grind it smooth, and give a thin coat of filler to sand now. After that I'll prime and then decide which of the many white colors would go best with the metallic blue lower body.

Now that would be a hoot! Go ahead and buy it. You have my blessings.

Just tell the wife I said it was OK.

MARTINSR Got the new faucet and installed it, it works, WHOOOHOOOOO. Got the front window cover back together (a fiberglass panel that covers the front window) after fabbing one lost bracket, sand blasting them all and painting them and riveting them back on.

Hey, I noticed a while back that Henry hasn't posted in a while, anyone hear anything about why?

No reason not to. You would not be able to put the "z" bend around the holes, but it would be fine just to roll the edges over. I just thought It would be fun to try this.

I dug this old picture out that shows the detail a little better.

The only full dress Harley I will eventually get will have 3 wheels. IN FACT, you should look into one of those, John....
