  2. Rims correct way or reversed......hmmmm

    Have you only gone through the clear? If so just flatten with 800 or 1200 then just re-clear the whole panel. Easy as mate.

    I just used 407 and put filler primer over that. Haha, i used to use Epotec as my base under the 407 on automotive stuff and it was mint. Wouldn't mind getting ahold of more 407 but can't justify the cost for the small amounts i'd use tho'. We used International marine epoxys on the stuff at work because of warranty tho'. Be sure to mix Epotec absolutely precise with the hardener or it'll stay soft for far to long and cause drama down the line.

    When I was doing super yacht stuff I used to use West System 407 microbaloons on cars instead of poly' bog all the time. Worked well.
  6. Little bit of progress. Also tyres ordered.
  7. Nah man. Waiting on spacers, tyres and me to make up my mind on a colour for the plastics.

    If you end up going the way of the vid's just be VERY careful near the panel edges. If you look closely you'll see a "build up" of paint on them. If you try to flat them to much you WILL rub through. It's not so much a "build up" of paint, more a raised area of panel where the skin is deformed when they fold it over the lip when made.
  9. 1200 is easy as. Nope. On to it. Pretty much. Although i have many solutions when i get runs, but those two vid's will help ya sort it.
  10. Also never had an issue, and you can't get bigger panels than this......lol
  11. Add 70-80mm spacers and you'll get an idea of how wide the arse will be on this thing lol.

    I'm interested in these if Naoks isn't.
  13. My OCD kicked in so now I'm cleaning and/or painting EVERYTHING. Second sand blasting pile has started.
  14. Blasted and painted, better start re-assembly before alzheimers kicks in.
  15. 10 points for idea. Minus 1763 points for execution. You couldn't pay me enough to be in the same shed when that's running. Google compressor tank explosion.
  16. It may be a little small but will work. You'll find what works best as you go. The rated CFM is the amount of air the pump can put into the tank, not the air coming out of the outlet, what comes out is normally a third less than rated CFM. Rated psi is the max pressure that will come out at first 'pull' of the trigger once tank is full, then it goes down pretty quickly from there. The main thing I've found to help with "hungry" tools is storage capacity. I had a 13 CFM pump on the 50 litre tank and it was shit and would 'cycle' more than ideal. Put that same pump on my a 140 litre tank and it's great for air hungry tools.
  17. Hope you've got a reasonable size compressor to feed that cabinet. Sand/media blasting is a compressor killer.
  18. Thought it was time to update this thread. Everything has been sold (except one very long term moped project in boxes) I'm now concentrating on another Gyro. I did a deal with Raizer on my A50 for it. This is how i got it. And this is how it sits, going to the blasters in the morning. Hopefully with only one project i won't get distracted and actually finish it lol.
  19. Any one around the Waikato - BOP - Auck' - Hawkes Bay area with a biggish lathe and has more engineering skill than me (not that hard lol) that would be keen to do an "odd" job. Will happily pay in your currency of choice.
  20. The thickness of that "paint" looks insufficient to be bog, it may be one of those 'spray bogs'. Most of the time the whole car would get done in it which unfortunately means stripping the whole car. This Alfa was done in it and i had to get rid of the lot.
  21. Yep, epoxy first. I'm assuming that's bog (too thick to be primer / paint layers). The way it's let go I'd say there was moisture trapped under the bog and it's just been sitting there patiently waiting to pop it's ugly head out and say hello. Do you have any pic's of other "suspect" spots?
