Barry will probably answer the phone. He is the owner of the company and always willing to provide tech support when needed. I think you will be pleased. Many of the guys on here use his products and have been pleased across the board. They are said to have the finest clears money can buy.




I started stripping the body shell today. As I have said before I try to just focus on one task at a time so I don't get overwhelmed. My next goal is to get the inner body shell in primer and install the top well and inner supports.

I spent 3 hours with a torch and a carbide drill bit getting this thing apart. I knew it would be a pain. It will be really good to look in the car and see a primed inner structure.



I did think it was interesting that the car has never had a top put on it. Even though the tack strip is too crumbly to use, there is only one set of tacks that have ever been put into it. Pretty cool.

They sell direct Mike and pay shipping. Very good to deal with. I think you will be pleased. They do have some Jobbers but I don't know if there are any in your area.

I switched to the SPI Epoxy from PPG DPLF and there is no comparison. I like it a lot.

Hey John,

For a second there, i thought you were going to say you had to clean up your 'pee dabbledy doo' but then i realized your were talking about the parts!

Really looking forward to catching up at Pigeon Forge!

Tim
Me too Tim! Won't be long.

This year I will have a reason to go to the swap meet.

I cleaned up the loose parts with an 80 grit DA and 50 grit 3 inch Rolocs, and primed the loose pieces today. As I mentioned earlier, I need to remove the windows and stainless off the body and strip it. I hate to see the bare metal start to loose its shine. Time to get some Epoxy on it.

It is good to have some protection on these parts.

John

I suspect Barry would be slow to stand behind that use for his clear.
