Train I will point out however, the one major flaw with this thread. There hasn't been a film crew following John around while he does this. I'd pay money to watch that movie.

John long Thank you Damnesia. I read this, headed for the kitchen to get my morning coffee and hit my head on the top of the door jam. you made me about two feet taller.

You have perfectly voiced my goals in starting this thread. I am very thankful that it has been received like it has. It has probably been most valuable to me on many levels but I never dreamed we would keep it going for three years.

In any case it has been a lot of fun and as you can see, a pleasant mix of tech advice, both give and take, but also a fun social gathering. For some reason this thread has never been plagued with trolls and has always been fun.

Thanks again,
John

damnesia I just found this thread while reading up on bead rolling, what'd I miss?

I spent about 3 days reading it from start to finish. This is truly the best thread I've ever read. It's like reading a book you can't put down.

John, very nice work and thank you so much for taking time to post great pictures and explain things. I'm not a novice to doing this type of work, but I'm not a pro either. Like you, I take my time and just enjoy the process. Truth be told I rarely drive any of the cars I have built ( actually, I rarely drive any car ) but can't stop working on them. Something about taking old rusty cars and making them cool again. Mostly have done old International Harvesters but am moving onto a car my wife bought me for my birthday. Not my favorite car, but since she found it, had a couple of my buddies check it out and bargain for it and gave it to me all as a surprise, I feel obligated to work on it ( '62 Fairlane Sports Coupe ). It's actually in better shape than any car I've done in the past.

Anyway thanks again for:

1. Teaching me what I do with a hammer, dolly, c-clamps and scrap steel as braces is called tipping, and can be done much easier and better with a bead roller ( mine is currently wrapped up under the Christmas tree ).

2. The tip on vinyl fabric for laying out patch panels.

3. That being frugal can include a TIG and a rotisserie. I'm working on explaining this to the wife.

4. That epoxy primer can be brushed on. For whatever reason this has never clicked in my head.

Thanks again and keep up the excellent work.

You are doing a fantastic job ,you are makind me jealous with that shiny Red paint,
Several of the guys on the SPI forum are using it for their base under the SPI universal clear and like it. I hear good things about the color match as well as coverage. Wanda has a new jobber here in Chattanooga who I have met but have not used the product yet. I believe it is a Swedish company. If Shine reads this, he will know.

How is the foot doing? Hopefully by spring you will be 100% and can get into some bigger projects.

deadbodyman I've used Wanda and its very good. I'll admit I was skeptical at first but it has great coverage and color matches. I'll be using it again.
