Re: Manny's 96 turbo 1gn: update 6/14/2020

Well guys I think I finally used some awesome clear coat. Expensive but worth it. $25 a can. I used 2 cans. Have a third one. Can dripped in 2 spots but that doesn't bug me. https://i.imgur.com/ACNlnApl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/zxqgg5Fl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/VKAPXFMl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/x4rgCJ2...

Re: Manny's 96 turbo 1gn: update 6/14/2020

So I actually returned all 3. Since I've already wasted this much time I decided I would just buy the regular automotive clear coat and stop trying to cut corners for the clear coat. Yesterday I ended up sanding down that thin layer of cleao coat down to the base coat again. Tomorrow early morning w...

Re: Manny's 96 turbo 1gn: update 6/14/2020

It's cheap, and will probably hold up better than rattle can paint. If I had a compressor, and some sort of air drier, I would probably get a spray gun to do that sort of thing, but all that adds up. Eventually I will get a compressor that will be able to handle various things... So I got the 3 ite...

Re: Carlisle 2020

If the State slaps them with a separate lawsuit for each event, they will go bankrupt trying to defend against each one. There may not be a Carlisle events... This is probably what will happen. Every event is each his own. So they can be sued multiple times I assume. They are acting very carelessly...

Re: Manny's 96 turbo 1gn: update 6/14/2020

TSC sells small cans of hardener for ~$16. It probably isn't as good as the professional stuff, but it would be better than nothing at all. It only needs to be petroleum based paint, which I'm sure you are using. https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/product/majic-catalyst-hardener-clear-half-1-2-pint?...

Re: Manny's 96 turbo 1gn: update 6/14/2020

My experience with Duplicolor has been pretty bad. Gasoline spills take the paint right off and so does bird poop. It just ate through the entire coating down to the base coat :-( did you use any actual clear coat on top of it when you used it..? my front lip, side skirts and rear lip are all paint...

Man so clean.

I see you were thinking of getting rid of it. That would of been a bad decision. Most of these days the new kids are getting ahold of them and trashing them. It's ridiculous the crap new kids are doing to the srt4 community.

Well work on the hood is coming to a close. It's not 1000% perfect. But I made it as best of my abilities. Also using Duplicolor paint Match spray can. Going to shoot some clear coat on it via my old spray gun. If this turns out good I may just do my roof and trunk. So at least the car doesn't look ...

Re: Dayton Spring Meet: March 21, 2020

I doubt I can go. Neon won't be ready plus I most likely have to work.

If I didn't have to work then I have to use that time to get the neon road ready to drive to fellow neon buddy house so he can install Megasquirt on it for me.

I don't use those services In my own small town let alone in a big city like where you live. I know it's useful for some people to have these services but I find it as a waste of money unless it's a pizza delivery.
