Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

got the cab and bed back this morning from the blaster...got it all in epoxy. ...turned out purty good...the bed had to go back to remove the lizard skin from the bottom.....kudos to lizardskin for a product that sticks...they said they worked on it 6hrs to get it off....what a shame that it had the wrong primer under it....

Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

this seems like a rerun but I got the lizardskin back on the bed underside...this time with the correct epoxy primer....also did the inside of the cab floor...don't mind the dust..I've been sanding...

Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

The cab and bed look good! Ash tray filled out nice too. You are making quick progress Greg.

Dust....this has been working pretty good for me.

Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

haha...I don't know how good that would work inside the cab Doug. ....the dust blows off the lizard fairly easily but I had moved it back in the shop and didn't want to create a dust storm in my buddies shop....he's a little ocd and I'm living on the edge with my mess....but he's a cool little dude...he's ok with it for now....
I've got most of it ready for high build now I've just got to wait on some rainless days to spray it on...
