  1. Good ideas/advice. Didn’t know about the asbestos. Got a couple questions about the primer. It sounds like the pot life is only a couple/few days so I would want to mix just enough. Is there some coverage ratio like “10oz covers 5 square feet” . And do I need to get down to bare metal or can I prime over original primer or sanded clear/base.
  2. I'm finally to the point that I start stripping the undercoat/sound deadener from inside and out the whole car. I know blasting is the best, but I decided to do it manually. I assume this is going to be long process and I'm concern about flash rust taking over before I can hit it with the epoxy primer. Again, I assume I will have to do it in sections, maybe a days worth of stripping and the next day to spray, and so on. It will probable take longer than the 7 day window so I'll probably shoot a final coat all over in one day at the end. Hoping I don't have to rough sand be fore the final coat. Looking for advice TIA
  3. Some PO installed A/C to my car. Upon dismantling, this is what I found. I have some fiberglass experience, made surfboards as a kid, so I'm not against attacking a repairs. Other than cutting out a cardboard template I'm not sure how to go about it. Particularly the lip/channel. Do you think this is worth the challenge, doable? The used ones I've found are very expensive. I like to repair parts when it makes since. TIA
  4. I agree with sixt9, don't underestimate just replacing the 40 year old stuff. Made a huge difference on my car. Depends what your after. I've keep investigating new setups but also cringe at the prices. Ultimately I think roller perches and the arning drop and I'm good. I don't really want to completely lose the feel of a classic car, that's what it's all about to me.
  5. A huge thumbs up. Tried out Ridge's tool this weekend. It's fantastic!! Works great. Thanks
  6. Hmm, that that hidden wire. Would it work to run run it up under the headliner?
  7. I would be curious if someone figured out a more hidden route than the factory route.
  8. Will be a great help. Thanks for your contribution.
  9. Well Houston has been shut down and there hasn't been much to do. So I had to work on the car!! Zap in the front outer frame rail patches, radiator support and front aprons. I guess there's a bright side to everything.
  10. How much was their quote, if you don't mind me asking.
  11. I think sm69mach may be on to something. If I remember the latch has two latch points. If the seals are tight the second latch may not be catching. Moving it out a bit may allow it to catch. When you press on the door will it lay flat? That would further indicate it's not locking in to the second latch point.
  12. I assume it depends on the application, but I notice that drag race cars do not run anything past the headers. If running a system would make more power or make the car faster, they would???
  13. Mostly getting really pissed as I continue to remove paint to find out the tail light panel and quarter panels have bondo covering the rust hole in my "rust free" car.
  14. Over the weekend I managed to find enough time to weld in the driver torque box and fit the toe board. Won't be able to touch the car till next week.
