Re: Restoring Rusty - Metal Rescue

i honestly have zero faith in this product, but while we contemplate what to do with that bad rusty spot on the hood, we'll give it another go

Re: Restoring Rusty

You can probably liberate that section from your other hood. I see welding in your future...

Re: Restoring Rusty

so decided to brush up my welding skills a bit before cutting into that bad section of the hood, so it was time to patch the hole in the trans tunnel

Re: Restoring Rusty

tac, tac, slowly but surely it's getting there, I like it, keeping the burn through to a minimum, then some grinder action and no one will even know how ugly this stitching was

Re: Restoring Rusty

then it was time to shoot some special primer, in other words the first can I could reach on the shelf

and after that I wanted to cover this with this special SEM undercoating stuff I've been saving for days and wanting to shoot it on something so bad, well I lost the can in the last house move I recon, cause I couldn't find it today, so I used that junk spray I used on my dash that is supposed to give a wrinkle texture finish but it sure don't

it does shoot backward onto your arm though

Re: Restoring Rusty

Dude. Don't you live in like the middle of California? Are you buying your truck parts out of the northeast states or something? Sorry to see the weight-saving-area on the inside of your hood. Your progress looks good across the board though. The Saginaw held up just fine with the landscaping duties, right?

PS, I hope you don't mind my apocalyptically numbered post landing on your thread. If I thought a deal with the devil could net you some rust-free parts, you know I'd be the first to sign up. Maybe.

I'm still a huge Maiden fan.

Interesting ensemble Whamo. Disturbing lack of shirtfulness, ha, but no lack of talent!

Re: Restoring Rusty

remember back in July 2016 when I got this fancy distributor cap...

Well on Thursday the truck ran amazeballs and on Friday it would not start. I suspect the coil went out as there was no spark. So I swapped caps back to my trusty cheap ProForm and after replacing a few MSD plug wires for reachability with generic AutoZone longer ones, whalla we got spark, and the truck runs again.

Now in the fancy Cross-Fire caps defense it did not come with a coil I swapped the coil out of the GM HEI unit into it, which by the way the GM HEI distributor is the one that seized on me, so it's the worst of the bunch yet it was the most expensive one, go figure.

Lesson Learned: Form Over Function Bites Us Again!!! when will we learn

Hi, I will. Can you tell us what do you mean by all of inside of your cab? Do you mean like the A and B pillars and the ceiling etc.? I ask because this stuff is grindy like sand paper, think the top side of a skateboard back in the Tony Hawk era, ha ha? It may be too gritty on the doors?

I discovered this product when I had a shop weld in the floor on my '68 Mustang about 10 years ago (god I'm such an idiot for selling that Ford) it looked so good and I bet they didn't do much prep and clean up just shot it over all that junk, and still it looked amazeballz.

I meant the floor and back of the cab up to the window, as well as up the firewall as far as possible.
