Re: The "Retired" 510

That went smoother than expected.

One or two runs and, you can see in the roof where I want overlapping enough.

Re: The "Retired" 510

Is it sacrilegious to replace panels that have no rust? Because I want a new quarter and taillight panel. Just seems like a ton of wasted work that may or may not fail later on. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate what I now know about working with filler. But Jesus, I have a solid drivetrain, great br...

Re: The "Retired" 510

It's not too bad. I have a couple of those moisture absorbers for RV's. I keep getting flash rush in the same spot, the license plate spot. I sand it off and it comes back a few days later. Makes me scared to paint it. Lol https://s14.postimg.cc/z2ceso5sh/20180410_123215.jpg https://s14.postimg.cc/3...

Re: The "Retired" 510

I'm hoping to spray Wednesday or Thursday. Then I've gotta fill the garage back up with all the body panels and clean up. I finished masking for the last time earlier. Tomorrow I'm gonna blow all the dirt out with air. Then after the dust settles overnight I'll do a final clean, then finally spray. ...

Re: The "Retired" 510

I know, I know... :?

It's just hard for me to decide if it's ready. Haha

I'll be gone a month and a half or so, that should be a good test to see how well my epoxy primer adheres.

Re: The "Retired" 510

I called the company that makes the 60cm one, and the ruler is older than anyone that works there so none of them know. I think you might be right on the right track about the swingarm possibility. But what throws me off about that is the level so slight adjustment in the brackets, maybe 5° adjustme...

Re: The "Retired" 510

Harbor freight for both. $20 for the gun after the 20% off coupon, $23 for the 25lb of walnut. https://s14.postimg.cc/nyt7iw9ip/20180404_154644.jpg As you can see, it's everywhere. I'm about 80% through this 25lb. The gun seems to work as it should, not that I have any experience to go on. And the m...

Re: The "Retired" 510

So I got a siphon feed blasting gun and a big box of walnut shells. It makes getting paint out of tight areas an easy task. I tried to get the gun with the lowest CFM rating, the box said 3.2CFM average, which sounded way too low but I ignored it and turns out the gun uses 13CFM, lol. I'll bet the o...

Re: The "Retired" 510

Ahhh, okay. I guess it's the wheel arches that throws me off, the brazing isn't so pretty... I avoided the rear glass as long as I could. So I popped it out. I'm getting so much better at doing this. Thick vacuum line seems to do the trick, or rope... https://s14.postimg.cc/izqjcy25t/20180402_205512...

Re: The "Retired" 510

I'll have to get a set of nubbed punches for things like that. I was able to get the end of the pin in my vice, from there I thought it would be easy but I just ended up chewing up the end of the roll pin... I cut out the bad section of the passenger side rocker and cut a little more off the driver ...

Re: The "Retired" 510

About to spread my final skim coat in the low spots, for the top section since I decided to narrow the focus to the top, bottom section will come next. I broke through to bare metal in a couple spots sooner than I wanted, for this I hit with the pointy body hammer being careful not to hit the filler...

Re: The "Retired" 510

When I found out my turnbuckle was too short, I got online and looked for 6mm threaded ones since mine was 1/4" threaded. Anyway, they make them but they are all about the same length (3.3-4"). So I checked eBay for the OEM part and instead found a rear brake cable kit from Raybestos, come...

Re: The "Retired" 510

Couple more pieces of the handbrake puzzle. This is the pivot bolt I used, pretty perfect for this application. Can't remember what it's from, sway bar end link maybe? Just had to drill the holes in the mount a bit bigger. Looks like the original bolt was M8 and there must have been a bushing to ada...

Re: The "Retired" 510

Spoke too soon I guess. Ended up stripping the tail light panel of its filler so I can start fresh. Idk what I was thinking wanting to leave it as is. Will be hitting most everything with 180-220 grit on the DA sander next. https://s14.postimg.cc/mj0wbuyvl/20180324_150834.jpg https://s14.postimg.cc/...

Re: The "Retired" 510

I've heard a lot of good things about that stuff, but I've also been steered away from it because it's overpriced for what it is. I'm using the classic Bondo which is owned by 3M (like everything else now! ) It's true that it's prone to pinholes and pits because of the consistency, but it can be thi...
