I just got it and Metal 2 Metal from Ever-coat yesterday. They said the Ultra doesn't need glazing putty over it. Mb125, who installed the rear 1/4 panels and trunk pans, suggested the Metal 2 Metal for the 1/4 panel seams, and pits in the dash. Figured I'd use the Ultra for the rest of the body.

Any tips for using it?

Make sure not to mix to much up at a time. Sets up fast in AZ and will start to harden before you can get it on the car.

Here is a pic of my car when I first bought it and brought it to it's present location in 1997. Just ran across it this morning.

Well, I successfully sanded the POR15, and sprayed some epoxy primer over it, and the cowl area that still had remnants of past paint jobs, including the original Silvermist Gray, green, and black. The green looked like something you would paint a John Deere tractor! I will post some pics later. Right now I am waiting 1/2 hour to re-coat it. That will be another 10 minutes. Back soon.

Ok, here are some pics of it now, after spraying the epoxy primer. Gave it a couple of coats. Mixed up way too much. 2 cups. Needed about half that. I primed my rubber coated brackets for the doors, and all four tie rod ends, and centerlink, along with the tie rod end adjusting sleeves with some of what was left over. Think I got the hang of this spray gun. I have never used one before. First time for everything, right? I found an online manual on how to use it and clean it. It's a DeVilbiss. Had it for 25-30 years now. It looked brand new, until I got a hold of it. Getting practice for when I paint this thing. Tomorrow, maybe I can get some body filler in these pits.

A friend of mine is coming over tomorrow to pull the back glass out for me. Hopefully it doesn't break. He's been doing it for 25-30 years so he's my best chance.

On a side note, I got POR15 on my shirt last week. I thought for sure it was there to stay as I didn't have any POR15 thinner. It's a type of Naphtha thinner, but it's number is slightly different than the Naphtha thinner you can buy at the hardware store. Years ago, I bought some Naphtha thinner at the store to see if it would work. It did not. Wouldn't touch the POR15. Neither would Lacquer thinner.

So when I got POR15 on my shirt, I figured for sure, there was no getting it out. Well, much to my surprise I got it out. I immediately poured the Naphtha thinner I had on it. It still did nothing. Then I took it inside and poured straight dish soap on it, scrubbed it for a minute or so and rinsed it. When the shirt dried, the POR15 stain was gone!

Not that it was an expensive shirt or anything, just thought I would pass this on in case someone else ends up in this situation. Best bet is to just buy POR15 thinner.

I use a cheap harbor freight hvlp gun for primer. Get them on sale for $9.99, regular 14.99. they work well for that. If you use rust defender high build primer, you will need at least a 2.0 tip or larger. That h.f. gun wont work for that. Rust defender is another great product. Very high build, has zinc in it for corrosion protecting, block sands well. Keep up that pace and you will be fnished in no time!
