Chris, I also got the small vacuum system from HF and it works great. Keeps the cabinet clear and you can see what you are doing. Al.

I just read through this entire thread. What a fantastic job you're doing! Very inspirational. I did a lot of work to my car, but nowhere near as involved as what you've done. Keep the pictures coming.

Went back to the local paint and supply shop and picked up some filler as well as some rattle can underseal.

I think this filler is a little overkill but the idea is to seal up the weld and then cover with normal filler. For that step I am going to wait and perform that operation outside, good excuse to catch somes sun (we actually saw 50F yesterday) and the dust stays outside.

Also making enquiries to see if I can get someone to come around and soda blast the rest of the bodywork that I have not gotten too.

This is the filler I used:

After the failed experiment with the Schutz I bought some 3M underseal, they did not have Schutz in a can and evidently this is nearly the same stuff ...

Well it went on much better but still a messy operation. I covered the floor in plastic and the key is to spray it on lightly in multilple coats, you could do it in one session but that means crawling over the mess on the floor so 3 evenings worked better.

Quite the inspiration to say the least. I am following this thread and have subscribed to it.

How many cans did you use to coat the underside? Do you plan on using this in the engine bay (I have seen it done recently or with LineX)?

Cheers!

I'll be doing the same with my project shortly, but I won't be using the rubberized product, as it appears to come off to easily for what I want-

Hi Mike, it took about one can for the area you see in the photo and at that point there was more left but the can is useless as the top is pretty much gummed up. Aim is to paint the engine bay.

Yep there are many solutions to work with, if I had the car on a rotisserie I would have gone another route. Also the car will be fair weather so I believe what I am doing should be good enough. Only time will tell.

I am not yet decided on the wheel wells but some of the old undercoating is very well adhered which will mean undercoating again. I was originally hoping to have body color on the underside and wheel wells but looking at other projects I thought the undercoat looked good.

Well not too much to report, I took a 3 week break while we had visitors and took a vacation. I am nearly complete on welding the fenders, just another hour or so on the drivers side rear and should be done, I was going to finish yesterday and then ran out of welding wire.

I have been receiving boxes of goodies though, the re-plated calipers from Eric looked great and they also came with new rear bearings and 5 lug rear hubs. I am picking some more parts up from the powder coaters next week so I can start putting the rear arm back together.

Couple of pics of the front calipers, once I have some of the small seals I can put the halves back together. Still waiting on rebuild kit for the rears but they look just as good.

And add a second coat of Epoxy

Now ready for underseal.

You might want to check out a caliper rebuild thread. Your pistons are not positioned in the correct orientation. The missing part of the piston rim faces the incoming part of the rotor when it is mounted on it's proper side. 20 degrees is the term they use when positioning each individual side. Wes V has a good thread and I'm sure there are others.

You are correct, found this pic on Pelican.

Thanks, inspired by brilliance or madness (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) I do have to wonder at times.

Anyway got these back from the powder coaters today, they did an excellent job. I had the brake protective plate done in black rather than plated like OEM, I am not after originality and the plating does not seem to hold up well on this part.

At last the lowest part of the car is done, the 2nd and 3rd can of underseal worked waaay better than the 1st, much easier to apply. Two coats and about 1.5 cans to do the floor pan.

I added the following because someone posted and asked if this happened to others, you do your best to align everything but when you get to the finishing the bottom of the flare it doesn't align quite right. In total this happened to me twice and is no doubt because I did not pay enough care and attention and I am a novice.

So the bottom was hanging maybe 3mm or so too low, first thing to do is cut off the bottom edge.

Attached Image

Align up the removed part to the remanents of the old fender (i.e the bottom), draw line and remove sliver of material.

Attached Image

Make adjustments where needed and get the part to fit as good as possible, tack into place.

Attached Image

Complete welds and grind/finish.

I held my fg rocker from aa up to my 75 body and I can't decide how to get a small gap at the joint of the flare and also work with the bevel on the bottom of the body, that seems to be a tough fit. It really looks like the fg rockers need to be straighter down more than angled in at the bottom edge.

Not too much going on but took some parts to the platers and cleaned up the garage a bit. I wanted to make the body movable so I could do some of the filler work outside, off to Homedepot for some wood which is not my best medium. Anyway made up a dolly which sits nicely on the finished underbody.

Seems to work OK and pretty stable, will see how it works in the coming weeks. Got a 928 track day this weekend and the wife wants me to refinish one of the bathrooms so May not going to be a stellar month for progress.
