Firewall Labels

Ok, so here is what I came up with. I labeled everything I could find pics of both old setup and new. Too bad I didn't take better pics of before.....

Update - Seam Sealer

Finished the firewall. Got all the holes filled and everything painted back up. Re-patched the undercoating in the trans tunnel. Moved on to seam sealer today. I used eastwood high solids seam sealer inside the cab and their self leveling seam sealer in the drip rail.

The high solids is really easy to use. I got the caulk gun stuff. I basically taped off all the seams and welds that I wanted to seal, put on rubber gloves, sprayed some paint-pre prep on the gloves and started smearing the sealer between the tape. That's really all there is to it.

Now the self leveling seam sealer is another story. Mind you this is the first time I ever used this stuff, but it is really messy. I had trouble with it. I started on one side and simply walked to the other side of the truck spreading the stuff without stopping. In the horizontal drip rail it was really easy and did exactly what it was supposed to do. No prob there. The vertical rails were another story. Some guys on here said they used the self leveling and went halfway down and stopped and it barely made it to the bottom of rail. Well I dammed off the bottom with tape and I went 3/4 of the way and it overflowed the vertical rail dam and went everywhere.... Then I noticed it stayed to one side of the vertical rail and didn't fill the whole thing so I had to shoot more in there to make sure everything was covered... But. It worked out ok in the end. I pulled the dams and cut out the overflow excess and sanded it up a little and it looks pretty decent.

I plan to spray the rest of my lizard skin ceramic coating on the floor of cab(the places where the dynomat got cut out, the firewall area under dash, and the rear cab wall and down in the cab corners.













Here it is sanded down at bottom of drip rail.

Re: TA_C10: Stage 1

Update - Body Filler Time

Let me start by saying I have no idea what I am doing... I did some research and we will see how this turns out. My plan is to do very little work lol. I don't want to get into too much work here. Mainly because I am running out of time and I am not good at body work, and two because its going to be my DD so I figure I will take care of the bad spots and call it a day.

If you remember I welded the roof seam so I started there because the panels were not great from the factory and after some metal grinding/massaging it still needed a lot of work. Then I moved on to the door sills and cab corners and gas filler.

Re: TA_C10: Stage 1

When do you plan to spray? Maybe I could come and lend a hand/ learn a bit?

Hey sure thing, I will PM you when I finally get around to painting. Been working on my mustang lately and got it up for sale so it's been taking me away from the C10. We also just got offer accepted on some land down south of ft worth so been busy... But tonight I was back at it in garage spreading mud on the cab. My parents come in this weekend for a visit but hopefully I will get up early this weekend and do some more sanding and mud sanding and mud.....

And if anyone knows someone interested in a supercharged 1989 Ford Mustang GT - just turned 100,000 miles original motor(with some mods) let me know!

Here is recent photos:

Re: TA_C10: Stage 1

Body Filler - Round 7

Been busy working on the mustang last few weeks. Sold the car though! Back on the truck this week.

I don't really know how many layers I have completed but it's somewhere around 7... All I know is I am not a big fan of this part of paint/body work... It's tedious and hard work. Probably more so because I have no skills so I am wasting product, energy, and time because of this

But I digress, because deep down I know even the newbie work I am doing right now will really help it the outcome of the paint. So I am excited to see paint go on soon. I have maybe one more layer of body filler to do in a couple spots and then I'm ready for filler primer and then paint.

























The roof sanding really works your arms/shoulders. And the angles here for this panel would have been a lot easier had I bought those "soft" blocks as well. They bend/form better in tight/changing angles so I pretty much did all this by hand without blocks.
