Repair body rust the correct way. Polaraco
« on: August 31, 2012, 07:01:25 PM »


Do you realize it's almost 6 years since I did this car?

Since my truck is down again for the same problem again. . .   I'm going to spend my long weekend working on the roof and the Chrysler.

I have 2 solar panels to install, but that won't take long.  Do them in the evening. 

Chris.  That Polyester glazing puddy is tough stuff!  I got it all don and put that puddy on and tried to wet sand it with 320.  I may as well have been trying to sand the sheet metal.

Most definitely going to paint it this time.  Same color as the white roof on the 62.  I just happen to have a quart already

Yeah vinyl tops do suck. Right now I'm doing a 71 'cuda that had a vinyl top removed years ago. Unfortunatly it was on there long enough to cause alot of rust holes all around the windshield and rear  glass.  Lots of fabricating, lots of welding . Not fun.

I figured I'd give it an AzBlack paint job.
 
House paint and a roller    
 
Rollers work great but if you want a show quality job use a Wagner Power Painter!  Also I prefer Behr over Glidden.

I just had a thought.  Maybe I'll have the glass pulled, strip it, mix some paint and brush it in.  Then put the glass back in.

Paint the roof a nice Pearl White, just like the color on late model GM uses on Buicks, Caddys and Tahoes.

I dunno Tom. . .  It wouldn't look right unless I did something different with the green.  I think the pearl would look allot better with a darker color.  I can't imagine repainting this car now.

Stick with mopar EW1...Spinaker white.  Just an off white and will look great with the green and the white interior.

I have 3/4 of a quart of white from the Chrysler.  I don't need to lay any money out other than to have the back window removed and reinstalled.

The wind kept tearing the masking off so I just tore it off.  I'll just clean the window with 00 steel wool.

Moving along.

Working on the rust craters and the hail dents.  I'm cleaning out the craters and treating them with rust converter before i fill them.

I'm not a fan of hail, but what I hate more is a guy dropping the end of a 20  foot 4X12 on my truck door. At least the rear side mirror stayed on the truck and no glass got broken, right?

I thought You'd put a Solar Panel in the Roof.

No just the sat antenna.

I had the back glass taken out today and rush home to get started on the channel.  Didn't know what I was getting into.  Turned out to be not as bad as I expected, the holes were no bigger than the last time.  But they were leaking water in the trunk.  I found out the hard way when I laid in there to remove the molding strip.  Which is still on.  Heh

After grinding everything to bare metal, treated it with rust converter, sanded it again, applied some etching primer, let it cure, and put some All Metal in the channel.  Realizing its all fiberglass and aluminum I decided I would coat the whole lower track with it and create a plastic bowl so to speak.  Once I get the sealer primer on there, scuff that up and paint it, I doubt this will ever happen again.  Unfortunately, I forgot to take a pic of the before.  I went in to get the camera and forgot why I went in.  Sat and watched TV instead.

Hey Bobby.  So much for Lab Metal .
