    They look worse than they are. They're still solid. I'm only gonna do the fronts this off season, then next year I'll worry about the rears.

    What's the por15 for? I was thinking about using it on my beat-up engine bay.

    The P.O.R stands for Paint Over Rust. It will completely stop rust from continuing to do damage and keeps more from starting up. I figure with the amount of issues these cars have with strut tops rotting out, this will be a big help in keeping the car from disintegrating.

    Degreased, metal etch applied and washed off. First coat applied. Hopefully apply 2nd coat tomorrow and then the top coat on Monday. And then I can start on the Right Side. Can't wait to be all done. PXL_20201128_192935394.jpg PXL_20201128_201145235.jpg PXL_20201128_202501884.jpg PXL_20201128_211828128.jpg PXL_20201128_211845436.jpg

    So I had a bit of a frustrating time getting the top coat to work. So I just went with a can of Rust-o for the top coat. Had some issues there as well, but it got done. Here's the driver's corner mocked up. Can't wait to get the other side done so I don't have to do it again LOL. IMG_20201214_165721_900.jpg PXL_20201214_211618238.jpg

    Wow I’m speechless, that came out very good looking tire well.

    I love it, I really enjoy a thread when there is a lot of passion involved.

    Keep it up bro.

    Appreciate it! Thank you. Really looking forward to not having to mess around with the car too much and focus on turning every lap next season

    No real updates right now. My brother got me a 1/4" gurney for my Nine Lives Racing wing. IMG_20210107_155019_658.jpg
