I'm with you, I'm just going with how I learned it. To "metal finish" means like what you would do to repair a stainless steel moulding, polished and done, that's "Metal finished" or prime and paint, that is "metal finished". Just how I learned it, I am not saying I am right.

As far as I am concerned Brian, It is a non issue. I certainly don't expect any of us to build a hot rod with zero body filler. It makes no sense to me to split hairs over terminology.

I still will be looking forward to seeing the metal work finished and it ready for Epoxy.

I grabbed a can of PB Blaster and sprayed it in the driver's dorr latch of the "NEW TO ME" **** box 2001 S-10 I bought to drive to work ! No gem, needs a clutch cosmetic front end damage but runs and drives great for $650 ! No pic, too dark.

LOL, I just thought that is what you thought I was going to do! I don't want you staying up nights waiting for that! LOL That's the only reason I brought it up.

my radiator was leaking again. Lifetime warranty so I had to clock out and take it off and leave the car their overnight. then in the morning(29 degrees) I have to ride my bike with trailer on it to drop my daughter off at the sitters and finish it off, then clock in for work. What a nightmare. I've got to be the master at changing a radiator on this car by now.

The Impala is really a drag. Now it's just down to prepping everything and waiting for parts. Once we get the body mount box braces I can weld some patches in, as well as the trunk and wheelhouse. So for tomorrow it's getting my car together again and working thru a couple fitment issues. I've been avoiding that tail light pocket but I'll forced to face the winds tomorrow. I have a feeling it's gonna be a nightmare

There is a good chance your radiator is full of electricity, yep, static electricity! We recently had one of these where we had to replace the radiator twice and the rep happened to be in the shop (a friends) whom I got the radiator from and he explained to use what was happening. We got a "magic potion" to put in it, forget the brand name and all but that fixed it.

The radiator literally turns into a battery and the water produces a small amount of voltage!

Bummer! I hate that. Good luck with the repair

I had won 4 skate board wheels on Ebay before thanksgiving for $1.98. I had read that guys were making Tipping dies out of them for their bead rollers by running a sharp blade type die on the top and using a wheel for the lower die.

I found a 22mm drill bit to bore the skate board wheel out for $8.80 with free shipping and a 2.4 inch pulley with a 7/8 inch bore for 13.85 with free shipping. 22mm is 55/64 so the shaft is going to be 1/64 th inch undersized for the pulley but I believe I can make it work. I will cut off one half of the pulley and that will give me my sharp upper die.......I hope.

Tipping a 90 degree flange with a powered bead roller will be much easier than working it through the English Wheel. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

I just love being frugal.

John

Sounds cool, did you happen to see these Lazze videos on the body forum? Very interesting stuff.

Yes, I think I have probably looked at all of them at one time or another. I also lurk over at the All Metal Shaping forum some but never post. I have nothing to contribute to that site. Those guys are artists! But.....Most of them have tools and equipment I can only dream of.

Tech69: Re your radiator - This sort of stuff happens a lot lately with the various types of metals in car engines, rads etc casuing an electro-chemical reaction.

A sacrificial anode rod hung from the rad cap into the coolant is often recommended to cure it. Just a thot

Another 10 hour day, this is getting REALLY old. Not only is it 10 hours but I am running the entire day! I am outside a lot and I often look up to the sky to see the beautiful clouds, not lately, my God the day went by like a flash and it was all under extreme pressure, this sucks!

Anyway, out to the garage listening to some great disco and 80's music and just bebopping around the garage having a ball. I cut out the patch panel for the right side of the roof.

I got a magic potion for it alright, but it's a little more yellow than greenish.

I was thinking it was the plastic to aluminum seal. Never able to fully determine where it came from but there was no hoses on that side so I know it was a leak. Is the stuff you used safe for the engine?
