i found if you sand it to 'key in' the new paint with a 120 grit ......it comes off quite easily anyhow .....the hard to reach inner corners just do the best you can....and give it a good buil up of etch primer......build up the coats ....don't be in too much of a rush and lob it on all in one go........your doing a real nice job ........little but often build up lots of thin layers until they are quite thick ..then let it dry for like two weeks until its totally dry then wet flat it if you want ....and apply the top coat .....I've got a compressor and gun if you want to borrow it........its only a small compressor .....but it'll be o.k for your floorpan:afro:

Its pretty flakey stuff so i reckon it wont take much - cheers for the offer man, but as for what to put on it im in two minds...

1. Paint it real nice
2. Go for absolute protection

You can get this stuff that goes on the flatbeds of pickups, it brushes on and is virtually indestructable. Craps on hammerite etc. Anyone any experience of it?

If you want it looking real nice.......I would paint it and if you want longlivity stonechip paint the underside.....did you know you can get coloured stone chip paint.......this way if you get a stone chip the topcoat that you paint over the stonechip paint won't leave the different colour that the stone chip paint is underneath ....because you don't need to topcoat it .....you just get it coloured the same as the top of the pan.........cool or what Cool

Figured it doesnt matter if i P*$$ the neighbours off with a bit of noise on a sunday now we are moving, so stripped the gearbox off, and flipped the pan to get all traces of crud, rust and old paint off, finish/strengthen a few places, then paint/seal it all up. Very Happy

Bottom of chassis/floorpans completly baremetalled, treated to a liberal dousing of zinc phosphate, POR metal ready, then POR 15 all over.
Support braces all finished off, small hole on framehead bottom plate patched, all 100% solid.
Gonna give it another light coat in a week when its hardened/dried properly, then flip it, sort pedal situation out and pop new cables in.

Yep keeping the floor, when I have to move in a year I can still store this nice and easy flat against the wall in the shed at work,, the shell is a bit more of a problem!
So thought I'd finish it off as nice as I could, so when I get the funds/urge to get another bug, its one less thing to do Laughing

Cheers! Came out ok, pics make it look better than it is!!!

It is a shame, but you never know whats gonna happen in the future, but right now I have to be ready to up sticks at a moments notice!

I'd love to keep the shell and finish it but its just sitting on the drive getting worse and im afraid if I dont finish it by the time my contract is up I'll have wasted a whole load of time and effort only to have to sell it for feck all as a poo Rolling Eyes
