That is a largely over used term "not compatible". When you have two products, especially 2K products once they are cured the don't "know" one another you know what I mean? You can spray that paint over any 2K product, and it isn't going to a "compatibility" issue.

That is a very popular primer, or at least it was before all the VOC rules came into play. But it was very popular, so was the paint. So something is off here, something was done during application that changed things. Not to say that you screwed up. It could be something that wouldn't have affected any other product you used. But SOMETHING is a miss here.

Paint seems a little "too" hard.

As I mentioned, last PPG for me and if I want to respray the truck, I'm in for a ton of work. I already stripped it to bare metal the first time.
If the paint comes off with masking tape it should scrape right off with a razor scraper and an air blower 5-6 hrs but there will be little paint chips EVERYWHERE...I do a lot of these and they make a big mess of the shop..

Sounds like a real pain in the butt.

Easier to drive it another ten years and do it after I retire. Hopefully the paint will be loosened up a bit by then.

Spent some time trying to track down the 2000 PPM wire from the ECM.

Couldn't find it hanging under the dash from the original TPI install I did.
Also have a couple other wires that are on the harness I recieved that I have no clue where they go.

This is gonna be fun.....

1930u Ė Window Regulators

This was is for me today... spent sometime with the family too.

I didnít want to use power windows and my original regulators are in great shape, so Iím using them. Their dirty and rusty but should clean up fine. Today I worked on the rear window regulator mounting and got everything roughed in pretty well. The original glass is ľĒ thick and I canít believe how heavy the glass is. The Plexiglas Iím using in very light and should be easy on the regulators.

The original glass lift channel was also in really good shape so Iím using it too.

I was working on my door glass too but I eliminated the vent glass and went with a one piece glass with power regulators.trying to find the proper seals is gonna be fun and all I could use was the guide channels. the rear channel can stay in its original posistion but the front has to be moved forward quite a bit. also removed the latches and installing power latches from an 05 Impala...regulators and motor are from the same car...it dont look like its going to be real easy....

You don't need a title, at least not here. You can make one, it isn't a big deal. You mock the truck up and then at the very least you bring it down to the CHP or DMV and they put a number on it. They use to have you call a cop to come by, that was cool because I have a number of cop friends and one of them would just sign the paper when I went by for a visit.

But honestly, I am going to have to do the same thing with my truck, I left it lapse years ago so in the DMV's eyes it doesn't exist. Another way you can do it is to lean sale it. Tow it over to a friends house and have them lean it saying you just left it there. Of course I am not telling anyone to lie, you really do tow it over and leave it there, your friend can then put a lean on it which takes a few months and they will get a title for the truck. My wife is doing one right now for a Toyota her brother left in her mom's driveway a few years ago.

I love it, crank all the way for me. I personally don't want the power, it was cute when it was a novelty but now when every single new car made comes with them, and zillions of companies make them for rods, it's just another thing to spend money and time on. I think I am still capible of spinning a crank twice around to get my windows up and down.

I put power windows in my truck years ago, now, I have some NOS regulator repair kits I am using to make them work as new.

BTW, is there a lake in the garage?

It came up 2 ft. on the back of the outside garage wall over the cinder block and through the siding , I opened the garage door and it ran out and down the drive ( 3 car garage) I wet vacuumed for 4 hours, and have 3 fans blowing to dry it out!!!! I didnt tell my wife !!! She came home put on her swim suit and went out the back door and saw the pool It was so funny and I could not stop laughing and she just got madder and that made me laugh harder and she got even madder!!!! This morning she called from work and was laughing about it so all is well on the home front LOL

Right on, as long as the garage is OK, that's all that matters.
