Have you tried surfacing with the SPI epoxy? What I mean is, as a "hi build"? The concept appeals to me because of the low to no shrink % with the epoxy. I have not tried it yet but I understand some guys are using an overnight induction period to get the mixed product a bit heavier, then spraying with a 1.8-2.0

Your clear looks very nice. I assume you have also been using that clear for some time now?

Do you achieve any "out of the gun and done" jobs with that clear?

Please, I apologize if I am asking too many questions, but... clear gun?

I just got in a pair of anest iwata's for my base and clear. I've been a devilbiss guy for many years, but my local supplier talked me into an LPH-LVX 1.4 for my sealer and base, and WS400 HD 1.3 for my clear. I haven't used either yet but of course he assures me I will love them. lol.

Thanks for posting projects like this, I said it already but you are an inspiration to others like myself.
I haven't done that with the epoxy I spray with a 1.4 tip. I have only used epoxy over my bodywork if it is a small area that was repaired.

I have been using Universal clear for 9 years.

This wasn't buffed and I'm still trying to figure out why it came out so good!!

northerndave . . I use epoxy for my blocking. As long as the epoxy is one that likes to be sanded, I have good results. I like it because of not having any isos too. I use Kirker, which builds well and sands well. If I need something that has more build, I use Polyester primer. Then I follow with epoxy. Polyester primer, no isos again. But 90% of the primer I spray, is epoxy. I normally will spray 5 coats for blocking.

Thanks guys. Sorry for all the questions rusty. The wagon is beautiful, nice job laying down that clear!

I have used kirker products in the past, I do think that my fav product they make is their 2k epoxy. Its a good value.

I'm dying to try some SPI products though so I think I will order some universal clear and some of their epoxy.

This coupe is looking beautiful! Home stretch now!

Rusty,
I see that Brian fab's some metal parts. What tools does he use to make these? In other words, what would I need to be able to fabricate sheet metal parts? I am considering taking on my 1962 Comet wagon, which has a LOT of rust and very limited new sheet metal parts available.

Unfortunately he doesn't have any special tools for fabrication at this time. All he has is a air saw, cut off wheel, drill, mini angle grinder, hammer and vice. He does have a small Northern Tool metal break but I don't know how much he uses it.

Thanks. Sounds like stuff I have on hand. Seeing how y'all tore up the 64 Mustang gives me encouragement to cut into my Comet. If I screw it up, well, it's fairly well shot anyway without any help. No harm in trying.
