sbf cruiser update, Cowl is in-pix!

Just in case you missed the last post, cowl was a blown out rustpile on my 68 Fairlane vert.

Now its crispy clean(ish)

My bud John banged this out today with my POS $50 Sears welder:
I was the tool caddy pretty much today

Phil,

You really should go to a local auto parts supply store and see if they have any spray on rust converter for sale. That surface rust is sure to rust through your "new" sheet metal in time. I have used the spray on rust converter on my projects before and they work really well. But, if you do use the spray be sure to ventilate the garage well as it is nasty stuff.

I know I know, I should have but I have been on a schedule and John is
only available on Sundays. He missed last week cause I didn't get the
cowl stripped and he was sick. Had I missed this Sunday it would have
just gotten worse timewise. I need to roll the car around the garage and I
wasn't about to move it all hacked up.

On top of time constraints I plan on POR 15ing stuff and that crap doesn't
ever stick to clean metal for me, all that rusty stuff is surface.

I am on the fence though about POR, I may Blu lighning it all clean and use my siphon fed POS gun and etch or epoxy prime everything. John said I should have dipped and E-coated it.

I am making this up as I go along and probably skipping important steps
but in the end I am building a driver. I'll never do another resto. The cars
are just too scary to use. When they are that nice they keep me awake at night.


Also this car, while I like it, its just an impediment to getting to my 62 Unibody

Even as a driver. I have to give a thumbs down

For all the effort there...

Try Zero Rust, it's cheaper, goes on easier, and will stick to clean metal much better.

So you have used blue lightning?

My buddy Chris did this:

http://www.purpleflyingmonkey.com/bl...t_remover.html

The rust on top of the donor section was POR15'd before final assembly, the bottom isn't rusty, its red primer.
The car however is a rustpile., just not where its welded together.
I wire wheeled all that clean. The firewall etc Ill strip later along with the bottom and all the paint

Wow..

Normally I use Picklex 20. It has a similar effect but it won't clean metal that badly rusted.. it's a metal prep/removes minor rust all in one.

I need to try that blue lightning.. Thanks!

You know guys, this is just an observation, but you know way too many names for rust control products. LOL
I'd be hard pressed to name more than one.

Flipping through the local want advertiser, the classic car section... I'd say 75% of the cars go like this

1969 Torino.. Little rust..Great interior blah blah blah
72 Tbird.. needs rockers Great interior blah blah blah
76 F100 Needs Cab corners, doors, lower bed sides.. Great interior .. Solid truck
76 Elite.. Clean southern car! no rust!! Needs interior.

Jones truck is so solid IMO I keep bugging him for body parts from it. :lol:
