Thanks man I appreciate it!
I know it’s been a while since I last updated. Been working on the car here and there after work etc. I found some surface rust under some of my primer from sitting in such a damp garage so I have been stripping the primer back off and dealing with any rust I found. Then putting new epoxy back on. I also have my sealer, paint and clear purchased and waiting. Obviously I still have some stripping to do until I get fresh primer and no rust but it’s getting closer for sure.
This is one I can't wait to see finished.
Thanks for keeping an eye on the build. I’m so ready to finally see it come together myself. Also, congrats on being the calendar car this month! Your Z looks awesome.
I appreciate that very much! I'll have to post up some pictures of the backside to show you the wing that you helped me engineer. I think you're build thread is one of the coolest on here.
Post away man. Motivation has troubled me some as I feel like I’m just going backwards lately. I’ve stripped both quarters, roof, trunk jamb and rockers so far. All of that is in epoxy now. I have big dreams for this car but redoing everything makes it tough.
Small update. Spent several nights last couple weeks stripping the cowl and dash panel. Last night I got it zinc phosphate coated and epoxied.
Need to figure out how to clean up the inside of the cowl now.... any thoughts?
With the vent cover on and vent doors you can't see in there. I would rough it up with some sand paper and get everything you can out by hand. If there is still any rust you could use the Eastwood rust converter paint and then brush in some epoxy paint. 2 good coats will do it.
After that if you want some extra rust protection you can wipe / spray on
some fluid film or Gibbs oil after the car is painted.
I’ll check into that. Thanks!
