Re: Barger's 79 FJ40

Wow! That sure is looking nice! At first the color wasn’t catching my eye, but now, putting it back together I’m liking it more and more!

Nice work!!

Greg, I took the wheel and used a pointed carbide bit and opened the cracks, Then used Epoxy to fill those.
Then you can spray primer and finish like you would on any other part.

Re: Barger's 79 FJ40

Greg, A 5 min. JB Weld (JB Quick) is what I used
Dries fairly quick (let it sit for a few hrs before sanding) then you can prep it as a normal part for prime and paint

A friend of mine used PC7 on his wheel, but it is a real pain to work with
