I tried the mesh out this week and love it.
Parts are harder to get for Hudson than for Studebakers. They are out there and it just takes some diligence to find them. The HET club is a good source as they have a fair membership with vendors. ...
Guys, here is the album link to the 1952 Hudson Wasp I am restoring.
From the SPI paint site--
With properly adjusted gun spray one wet coat. When finished check time and wait
exactly 30 minutes before spraying second coat, same with the third coat if...
I have been wanting to try this for some time, did it back in the 80's but not recently. I have a 76 Ford Jade green poly that I am about to spray and would like to
try integrating clear into the...
Have any of you guys used the mesh type sanding rolls and disc to sand body filler? The body man helping me is going on and on about using it...
I am just getting to doing body work on a 52 Hudson that I sandblasted and applied Zero Rust on as I knew it would be setting a few months.
I have some filler work to do on the roof and would like...
I have been using the Blair type spot weld cutters but would like to go to something that is easier to handle. Do any of you use the Spottle type air cutters?
What are you using-recommending for...
I always clean the surface as best I can so this wouldn't change the way I prep. It would help in areas that you can't prep as good as you like.
I don't think this is a typical "etch" primer as...
Anyone here tried any of the Tamco primers? I am going to order some when I start my next project and
am looking at the 5311 for it's anti rust...
Len, I have a CVI gravity feed with 510 air cap and 1.3 tip. Now that I have a new Sagola coming I would like to convert the CVI over to spray primers. I see that they list a 1.6 and 1.8 kit for...
Curt, I just tried that site and got a ton of stuff I didn't want downloaded to my computer. It's taken an hour to get it back off.
Any other way that I can get it without all the added garbage...
thanks Curt, I will download it and take a look. It sounds like what I am looking for.
I'm pulling the trigger on the Sagola special and am wondering what tip size to get for spraying base and clears. I use high solid clears like Matrix MS42 for the overall jobs and am contemplating...
I've been using Excel spreadsheet for a few years to document cost and expense on restoration work. Also use photobucket for pictures placed in on line albums as a customer can just click the...
Boy that looks nice! Which tip and air cap were you using?
1149711498Going home! From Jan -
just did a set on a 2006 Jetta this week end. 800-1200-1500 then sprayed with Matrix MS-42 clear. looks like new and holds up for at least 3 years (first one I did, still looks great)
I,ve restored-built several of the Studebaker finned hawks (56-61) and always pull the fins and prep and paint that area as the cavity is prone to have some rust, sometimes rusted thru.
I went thru all the post's on lead and see where Len had an opinion post on it that I can't seem to find.
I'm trying to find this info do to a topic in another car forum about the grand vertues of...
The 300 is very basic, the 600 is slotted to allow you to change the angle of the bits as all don't have the same twist rate thus the angle needs to be changed. I have the 600 and it's one of the...
Len, what lacquer are you using?
Good info, I"ll have to give them a shot at some of the stuff I work on.
Also McMasterCarr has a big selection of gasket material and you can order on line.
Surprised you missed the Sagola line of spray guns that have been discussed on this board.
I know a lot of guys, including me, have used etched primer for this. But it is not recommended to put paint straight on etch primer, but to then use a primer sealer over the etch primer before...
What primer are you guys using for "sand through" areas ? Want something in a spray can that I can just spot a very small area when I need to without mixing and using the spray gun.
Thanks Len, I just ordered a gallon of Sure Finish and pads.
Yes, the booth is home built with three exhaust fans, one up top and two on the end. I built it in the late 80's. I just need to get...
Starting to turn the corner now!
anyone ever used one of these tools for small area stripping?
Just saw this product at the Moultri Ga car show.
Has anyone here used it? Sounds a lot like picklex but they do say to rinse with water.
here is a comparison chart from the picklex manufacturer's site--
What exactly is the difference between Picklex20 and Ospho coatings? They both smell the same to me. I have used Picklex for some time and my helper has used ospho and says he can't tell the...
I have to give props to the Sure Finish I got from Len.
I had used it a year or so ago and was sold on it then.
We just finished a 70 Jagure XKE and buffed it out, I was unhappy with the final...
Did this tape or one like it using Sure Finish ever get filmed?
Thanks guys, I found a compressor at a scratch and dent business and am getting a 7.5 hp 3ph with a 120gal tank. It was built this year and was scratched in shipping. It's a NAPA 4 piston compressor....
The difference in price is 425.00 ? This is a two man shop.
any wisdom to impart?
Is the 4500 available in the US now?
love this 42 Hudson SW --6879
How did the gel coat turn out?
You must be working for 10.00 an hour!
I thought I'd start a new post just to address this issue. In my first post (no answers) I mentioned a car my painter just sprayed, a 70 Jag XKE. The body work was flawless. He applied 3 coats of...
Why is the outlet so much smaller than the inlet on this new gun gauge? This is supposed to be for HLVP gun. ...
Thanks for the clarification!
So-- The wall unit is an air regulator--
the gun unit is an air flow restrictor --
both units need to be high flow--
I know some painters that refuse to use a regulator attached to gun, only use the wall regulator. I've been reading over some of the "gun adjustment" posts and appears to me unless you have an air...
Just finished up a 70 Jag that we did a heap of body work on and painted black. Body on rotisserie. Painted with Matrix base coat...
Len, now that you have sprayed with both, what is the difference in finish? which one is faster-slower? How much air do you need with each?
Since the late 80's, I have been running my 10 hp air compressor using a cederburg phase rotary convertor that has a 15hp motor. When I first installed it, I was running a 3hp squirrel cage blower...
The powder is sprayed on to the surface, then put in an oven and baked at 375.
I like to preheat my parts, spray the powder on and put back into the oven for a few minutes. Once you pull it out and...
Robert, that is interesting! I bet it's expensive--
I can't get the first link to work. Here is the parent company's site --http://n2spraysolutions.com/
I've used that type and the 'hair dryer" type. Like this one--
For the stuff that I PC, I prefer the hair dryer type.
