Well guys, here the final pictures of Summit's Paint cut and buffed. I have no previous experience with painting, but I liked how the Summit Paint worked for a guy in his garage like me.

Sunday, my buddy Dave came over and went to town on the bug, color sanding and buffing. While he was sanding and buffing.

Here is the car before he worked on it. Looks good / decent. I call it a 5 foot paint job. Shiny and smooth, but it had a couple runs, some dry spray and dust through out the paint job.




Here you can see the dry spray that was in a few areas.






Here's Dave, hard at work. He arrived at the house at about 10 am and worked all day, until about 10 pm perfecting the paint / detail job. Fantastic!










And the drum roll.............................................. ...


I'll let the pictures do the talking.





















Dave did such a fantastic job!!! My paint went from a 5 foot to I wanna still my face in it. If any of you in the Houston area would like Dave to detail you car I can give you his contact information.

Thanks again, Dave! I can't wait to get some pictures out in the sun.

LOL, thanks! The pictures really don't do the buff job justice.

I have a build thread under the "Basic Hotrodding" section. It's titled "1973 V8 283 Super Beetle - Help Needed", or something along those lines.

I have driveline pictures in the thread. I built the engine myself. First one I've done. The specs are.

383 (3970010 block)
10.39:1 CR
Vortec heads w/ lunati valve springs
Isky cam # 201278 , 278/278, 234/234 @ .050, .450/.450 lift, 106 LSA
RPM intake
750 DP carb
HEI dist.
S10 conversion headers
2.5" dual exhaust to 40 series flow masters dumped.


An other wise stock motor. I had tech run a dyno sims and he got 438 hp @5500, 410 ft/lbs @2000 and 469 ft/lbs @4000.

Tranny is a built th350. 5 clutchs, upgraded hardened sprag race (i think that's what it's called), B&M shift kit. Has B&M 2,500 stall.

The car still needs some upgrading. It has 3.08 gears and the stock 7.625" rear, which isn't too bad in such a light car.

Plans for now are just to cruise to shows and have a little fun with some of the american muscle cars and ricers. When I'm ready to get better E/Ts at the track I'll upgrade the rear and stall.

How fast is fast enough

Don't know how fast you want to run but my 1800 lb T-bucket with a basic 300 hp 350 and turbo 350 trans w/1800 rpm stall and 3.08 rear runs 8.52 in the 1/8 mi @ 81.49 . That's as fast as I want to get in such a light car. You should be quite a bit quicker with your setup .

turned out great and you didn't spend whole lot of money on paint. Too bad they don;t match other colors, they carry just generic colors.

I'm sure I'll be happy with the way it's setup. If it ran a mid 12 in the quarter mile, I would be happy. It's scary enough as it is.

Thanks. I didn't even think about that, but you're right. I'm quite surprised though at the quality of the paint for the money. Not a bad way to go if you happen to like one of the 40 colors they carry and you're on a budget.

According to Cliff Ruggles my 1/8 mile time computes out to 13.3764 in the 1/4 mile . He has raced for over 30 years and is the premier builder of Q-jet carbs and said the formula is 1.57 times the 1/8 mi. time for 1/4 mi. time. So I think you'll be where you want to be with your setup . As for me, there is no way that I am intersted in going over 100 mph in my little T-bucket .

That would be interesting because Summit racing paint ratio is 4 parts paint to 1 part activator and Kirker is 3 parts paint to 1 part activator. Just my observation.

I would almost agree if the mixing ratios were the same. I guess we'll really never know. Like the guy from Summit said, "they're all just guesses".

Epoxy Primer

Well Fed-Ex delivered my Summit Racing epoxy primer yesterday. I can't wait to lay some down and see how it does. Hopefully it will warm up some over the next week so I can try it out.

Seems to be really good stuff as a sealer over bare metal or body work.

Just stir it real good. Might even want to take it to Lowes or Home Depot and have them use their machines.
