Wildflower was one of the first to arrive, and got a perfect spot under the lights - she stood out quite a bit as the two other cars parked in front were dark sedans.
Hi Guys, Last night I removed my back bumper, rear fenders, and bed skirts form my pickup. Both fenders and one skirt had stress cracks that I had welded closed this morning.
Rust between the bed and fenders was starting to pit but I think I caught it before it got too bad. After I repaint this, do you think it would be ok to make a rubber gasket to fit in between them to prevent the paint from rubbing off or do you think it would cause more rust.
I had also thought about putting a sealer or calk of some type in there instead. Most of my bolts broke off when I tried to take them off, which is ok because I wanted to replace them anyway. I was thinking about replacing them with stainless steel bolts.
This would make removing them so much easier and will only cost me about twice as much to buy.
My questions are will the stainless cause dissimilar metal corrosion when the bolts wear through the paint from vibration and will paint stick to the stainless or will it flake off?
Does it need a special preparation? I use the same material that the Germans used for 20 years on the Volkswagen.
The material between the fender and body works great on the pickup fenders. The Volkswagen fender welting is really cheap, and long enough.
I love the stainless bolts. Hi All, Just wondering if anyone out there has a good idea for temporary paint spray booth.
I am getting ready to do the finish coat on my 54 SDDL and I really don't want to get dust ,dirt ,or debris on it.
I was thinking about using 1" pcv and plastic sheets. It settles the dust. Wear a good mask, not just a paper one. Some of these quick paint places do OK, but you have to be careful about mixing product brands of paint supplies.
If you decide to let them paint the truck, find out what brand of paint they will be using and only use that brand in your prep- work. Many of these brands are incompatible. I've seen cross mixing of brands cause paint to peal, crack, and bubble.
If you didn't supply it, you had to pick between one of their 20 colors they bought in 55 gal drums.
Written by David H. It probably gets a little more in depth than you need but what the heck. There are actually hundreds of books on the subject in print. Just make sure to get one that is up to date. Has anyone come across a pre-fitted indoor or out door cover for their pickup? The closest new truck I found with similar dimensions is the Dodge Dakota.NORSOK STANDARD.
