    Alloy wheels and clear question

    Sorry guys. I never got far on this and after getting a flat on the intended car I tried a wheel and tire on it. It doesn’t even fit. The offset is not enough to clear the break hardware. What an idiot I am. I got one wheel close to finish but splat! Now I need to sell the stripped wheels (2)...

    Thanks for the research on vendors Shine. That's the one I'm going to get- Flex L3403. Bummer it was discontinued on Chemical Guys with that 20% discount. It would have been great but I'll still need some stuff from them. Thanks FarmBoy "I ain't smart enough to be scared"

    I am ready to pull the trigger on purchasing a buffer and have been interested in the Flex 3404 that Shine is fond. Since this is my first one I wanted to get all the necessary accessories at the same time and take advantage of the Chemical Guys 20% of on sales of over $200 but that Flex buffer...

    Cavity Wax

    A general question first - what would adhere better to a surface that can't be reached to prep properly - epoxy or cavity wax? I have no experience with either but I'm sure it will find me eventually. Secondly, I can't see disassembling this door to properly clean and prep the surface for epoxy...

    Alloy wheels and clear question

    I'm starting to polish a wheel now in some free time and I'm learning a lot about scratch refinement - if that's the proper term. I started too coarse and wow are 36 grit ( with some aluminum chunks imbedded in the rollock) scratches hard to get back out. I was thinking it was needed to get...

    Cavity Wax

    Bob What would you recommend to kill and protect inside a door where rust is coming out from the seam on the door skin. It is almost breaking through the paint. We will be pulling the door panels to inspect but would like an idea of what to try while it is apart. It is a 2004 Dodge PU. I have...

    Alloy wheels and clear question

    Thanks I defiantly have to take a look at the process closer. Thanks for the safety tip - when I was a kid I painted about a dozen plus concrete mixers with zink chromate with an N95 paper mask. It made for some tough boogers. You now understand my quote at the bottom! Thanks again FarmBoy...

    Alloy wheels and clear question

    I'm working on the sanding now to remove machine marks from manufacturing. The work my way through grits to get it there. My understanding is in the Cerakote process they will be chemically dipped to clean. In not sure after that but I'm still investigating. Anyone know what kind of heat and...

    Paint delaminating - how far to take it down?

    Just because I threatened a nephew That I would give him the car in about another 9.5 years I will talke it down to metal. It has 20,000 miles on a new engine and well maintained mechanically I will fix her up. When I'm done it might be one of Jay Leno's must haves for his collection. Thanks for...

    Alloy wheels and clear question

    My buddy said the Cerakote shop he uses for gums is getting into this side of things - automobile applications- they have tools and product on order to begin work in about a month. My wheels have been offered to them as a test run to see what can be produced. THANKS for putting me on to that...

    Paint delaminating - how far to take it down?

    Thanks Bob I will use this method to get it to steel and then to DATEC's idea of shoot it with epoxy and body work? Any fears of driving it around in various stages of the building it all back? - other than the obvious strange looks from the jealous people that don't have a 1998 Lumarocket. I'm...

    Paint delaminating - how far to take it down?

    Yes sir- I have been doing that where possible with the three pieces I have off the nephews car. I'm spraying or puttying or sanding something all the time between rest breaks. Thanks for reaffirming it. I have 36 hours in on these three junkyard pieces and a nice couple of bills from Andy for...

    Paint delaminating - how far to take it down?

    I presumed it would be a down to metal job. Thank for confirming this and saving me from some wasted effort to save the original paint. I'm getting the hang of how to do this job up to the point of bc/cc. I'm am new to body and paint so any opinions or recommendations on the best way to get a...

    Alloy wheels and clear question

    I have used Sharkhide on aluminum bulk trailers that haul cement to help keep the spillage from adhering. It was Ok for that. Also used on aluminum bumpers and some aluminum wheels on concrete mixers with better but still just Ok results. It is awesome on aluminum pontoons. Thanks for the great...

    Paint delaminating - how far to take it down?

    My daily daily driver is a super sweet 1998 Lumina aka Lumarocket. It is a well maintained car so I would like to make it presentable or even nice if I can. It started to shed paint in sheets up to the size of a dinner plate starting this winter. Had to go around the neighborhood picking them up...

    Alloy wheels and clear question

    I have a buddy who is a regular at a Ceracote shop. He's a custom gun nut! I will see what he can find out from them. The Sharkhide is a good product for its intended purpose of aluminum protection but it is only an OK shinny finish. These wheels are going on my daily driver which is a super...

    Alloy wheels and clear question

    I'm wanting to clean up a set of alloy wheels that the clear delaminated and there is oxidation. I stripped them with Kleen Strip and that worked well. I will polish the faces and then begin coatings. I want to coat the recessed areas with black SPI epoxy as an accent. They were originally dark...
