I got a little cleaning done, but that is about it. It's so funny, we have soooo little work it's crazy at the shop, I should have came home with energy but alas, I was up in the middle of the night to see my wife off as she went across the bay to help a friend get to the hospital for a planned surgery. But work, holy crap is it slow! It was 3:00 before I touched a car! Wow, we are short a few techs right now, but next week one will be back, hope we have something to do!

Naww. I'll let you old drag racers have the post car. Just send that old rattlle trap rag top my way.

Your car is the perfect candidate for the complete floor pan assembly. I hop you are as impressed with them as I was my trunk assembly. You will still have a big job but nothing like what I have underteken by hand fabricating it.

On a side note. I will have been working on my car 6 years next May when I probably will be getting it on the road......Been fun but I'm ready.

John

Sorry David, but I'm confused.


Why POR15? I understand it only sticks well to bare, rough metal. I've had it fall off of substrates which were not bare metal.

Yep, if epoxy priming it, use a good, single stage urethane paint and it will be great. No need for POR15 in this situation.

I pulled up the data sheet for POR15 itrecomends to apply to clean Bare metal,but on the can it says apply to treated and prepared surface,,probably something to do with warranty if it falls off,

I applied it on my truck and only Hot Steam pressure washed it and it turned out good.or good enough for a truck I did do a quick DA with 180 grit before Brushing it on, it has been 6 years i think I started about a month before John and still Not finished,,

I did a little test with POR on a piece of rusted metal out in the yard, it DID protect it, keeping it looking good for a number of years. And that was with full exposure to the sun and rain.

I am not saying POR 15 won't protect metal and if I lived in Ohio I might be tempted to use it. Personally, I see no need for anything better than a couple good heavy coats of epoxy. My garage kept fair weather car is going to last years and years longer than I do. I used the SPI black epoxy which is advertised to have UV protection. I liked the look and stopped there.

To me, It is just personal choice.
