How bad's that right footwell rust?
How are you going to address that? Would a (I think it's called) 'flame sprayer' work without causing problems with the interior?
Plan is to sand it down, get as much of the loose, heavy stuff off and then treat it with some type of rust inhibitor. I'm looking at the Por 15 products.
And the pinholes? Unless you're looking for the POR-15 to fill them in?
The best way to deal with pinholes is to glow the surrounding sheetmetal using an acetylene torch. This'll melt the too thin metal back to where it's at its original thickness. Sooner or later, you'll have to renew the damage
Yep, looking at all of the different options.
A fellow that works for us spent a decade working for the local paint supply outfit. He said that for what I am dealing with, the most cost effective route is to use POR15 and some fiberglass mesh. He said that once it hardens it will be as good as new, if not better.
So I ordered some POR15 from the local parts house and got me some fiberglass.
That looks okay, as long as it doesen't separate itself from the metal
I don't believe it will. From what I have found in my research this is a very common way to repair issues like this.
But I guess only time will tell.
Been a while since ive posted! So quite a bit. Back in Missouri again, long story. The party barge has undergone some pretty noticeable changes too....
And just a teaser for whats to come...
Definitely making progress and going faster!
Great to see you're making progress! I can't remember what motor you're running in the party barge.
Its the stock bottom end 350. Ive got a Lunati .525 lift .305 duration hydraulic flat tappet cam on the way. Worked over vortec heads, assault racing single plane high rise intake, and a holley 750 double pumper.
The blower is for just a little later down the road, its a little one, Weiand 144.
Nice. That ought to move the barge quite nicely.
Which Vortec heads? And when you have the blower on, what pressure will you run? I've read or been told a 'stock' Chevy V8 will handle 4PSI without any mods. Will you switch to big-chamber heads to lower compression? And will you be switching to a controllable ignition to prevent detonation under boost?
