I think I'm getting myself put in the doghouse because of this car
. Wifey last night said "We have to talk." Oh Oh... that usually means SHE wants to talk. At me... To make a tense situation a bit better I have agreed to go with her on a tour of people's gardens that they have made at their homes in my area. There's fifteen of them I think and they have musicians and artists present while one walks around and "smells the roses". Oh well, it'll buy me some time later...I hope
Okay, back to what REALLY matters in Life heh heh heh
When I pulled out the rear window because of some rust issues on the lip, I also pulled up the rear speaker deck and lo and behold, more surface rust mostly, although there were a couple of perforations at the front right side.
Here's a shot of the floors all cleaned up as best as I could and etched with metal prep. It took many hours to get to this point using hand tools.
That POR 15 goes on nicely! It's a lot thinner than most paints but it's a really tough coating. $35 CDN for a pint so it's not cheap!
I used a 2 inch sponge brush and had the doors of the garage open for some fresh air.
Ahhhh... the first coat is on. Looking good. I used their black semi gloss.
I painted the rear deck as well as the floorpans and also all around the interior window and door frames. And there's still half a pint of paint left for the second coat! POR recommends a minimum of two coats. Now I've got to learn how to weld...
