Thanks DEADBODYMAN. All us retired bodymen are probably dead but don't know it yet(at least brain dead from the fumes all those years).
I'm probably being too paranoid. I've done a lot of "Chops" and customs. I used to paint my vehicles twice a year whether they needed it or not. This is the first attempt to put something back
to original and want it to last the rest of my life.
You don't like PPG? Why not? Most shops in Metro Detroit use it. Remember when it was called Ditzler back in the laquer days?
The Electrolytic rust removal
looks interesting. I'll give it a try.
Years ago I worked at a Jaquar dealer. There was a mechanic there that only worked on "Old Man Falveys" cars. I think his name was Bill. I wish I got to know him better, he was just a weird old English guy to me at the time. Anyway, he did a restoration on a Bugatti that would blow your socks off. Every nut on that car was aircraft wired. I could have learned a lot from him. It was similar to this. File:Bugatti Typ 40 Grand Sport Tourer 1929.jpg - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
