Does anyone have pics to show what you did to your Suspension or Undercarriage? I am looking for stock scenarioes to modified. Also can you specifically state what types of paint you used and colors? Has anyone ventured to the 'hammered' paint - I thought that may look kinda cool on the spindles
i sandblasted all the parts frt & rear then gave them a coat of por 15 after etching & topcoated w/por 15 ford red engine paint. the frame i coated w/por 15 & topcoated w/krylon semi black. also used por 15 to coat the shell & wheelwells. i used dupli color red anodized paint for 1/2shafts & shocks
Rosslato - as always - WOW !.... Chris and I are heading in the same direction...
Yellow73 - grab some pics - eager to see that hammered look. Where else did ya use it? You happy with it?
I think the red really looks nice.
How does your 'painting work' hold up - how long ago did you paint it and how often do you drive it. Just trying to assess for myself and others how well each style of paint holds up
i did the rear end work 8,ooo mi ago which is 2 summers & have just a few paint chips on the front of the shocks but nothing on the 1/2shafts or TA's. the frt suspension i just did last spring & have 4,ooomi on it & no chips, still like when i did it. everything Red up front is coated w/por 15 engine paint, that stuff is hard.
P S-your homepage isn't working
Rosslato is a pretty hard act to follow... ESPECIALLY with those chrome universal caps.
Here's my POR-15 frame & suspension. Frame is topcoated with Eastwood Chassis Black. I have since completed the rest of the frame, but no pics yet. I'm still lookin for those caps Ross...
lookn good Eddie, go take some pics of yer latest work, would like to see. as for the universal caps, if i'd a known they were gonna go out of business i'd a bought a poopload of em, oh well. you'll just have to go capless. what shocks u using w/the TRW spring?
