Well worth it, I will tell you that.... nice job! [cheers]



Besides if I survived Immron without a mask, I am sure I can deal with a few freckles on my face and arms.

Great info, thanks for sharing it.

The fumes may not be bad, but that stuff has some deadly shit in it. Just warning you guys. It's not like paint, it's a lot worse. Just because you can't smell it, doesn't mean it isn't there. I just want you guys to stay safe.

The fellow that does my sandblasting hits it with a 2 part primer then a 2 part industrial gloss black. Don't chip, real shiny, easy to find oil leaks.

That looks great.

Maybe I will try a can on that gas tank and see how it goes...

Is it possible to paint the leaf springs or are they powder-coated from the factory?

I'm ordering a new set...

When you say industrial paint, do you mean Centari ? I have used that stuff before on commercial vehicles and on school busses and that is great stuff. If you should run it, just leave it and when you come back the next day the run fills itself and that stuff is bullet proof too. Excellent idea!

Not sure of brand name. Fellow uses it to paint trailers etc. Prime use I believe is for truck chassis. Wears like iron and supposedly tougher than emron. I like the gloss finish cause it is easy to trace back leaks especially with black paint. And it cleans real nice.
