Their panels are top notch and it's not as hard as it initially looks on the install. I drilled holes in the bottom skirt and made like a spot weld up the hole to secure it to the bottom of the car.
How did the aluminum welding go with the mig? I bought a roll of al wire and was going to give it a try just to see what happens.
Aluminum welding too cast with co2 went like **** and is a total fail!!! Going to get pure argon on my next tank...see if that helps things...stay tuned
So, after the grey spot-primer was shot in June above...progress has been on filling EVERY single little imperfection in the car.
This means I grab the can of Rage Gold filler, fill a 3mm spot let it dry sand it.
I walk around the car, look for more flaws, fill again, sand again, fill again, sand again.... all over the car.
However, I have run out of problems (can you ever really 'run out' on an alfa?) or I am just tired of the two months of doing this that it's time to goto the final primer coat.
My wife will then troll over the car with blue tape and identify problems that my eye's have missed (there will certainly be some) then we'll fill those, then sand those, then shoot with the sealer/primer and final sand with 180 then 220 grit then we'll shoot the color AR501n from Standox .
So...been working a little....(but sadly only a little)...
Got to the point where I really need a baseline to go-from to stay productive.
Especially after attaching the outer rocker's/Outer Sill (I welded them in the end and did not use panel bond).
Was a tough fitting, but they are on now as you can see in these shots.
Also got the flared rear fenders properly adhered to the rear arches (there was a gap there, but welded it up and did some panel bond garage-build-race-car ****) to get it done.
Christmas break I will continue progress by filling and sanding and filling and sanding...
As you can see from the photo's, PLENTY of work left to do!
