  1. Below is the reply I got from Car colours. Yes we stock Kephos, it is now known as Bonderite 253 also previously known as Paint Grip. My pricing is $49.29 incl for 1ltr or $181.92 for 4Ltr Freight is about $5. I can draft up an invoice if you want to go head Cheers They were really good to deal with and took my order over the phone.. recommend, would trade again.
  2. Thanks AALAWS , I have sent them a email. Legend.
  3. Front bar of the turntable. Holes offset and will screw down into the original bumper holes. Should have it spinning in a few days time. Have finished grinding back and paint stripping both the bonnet and front guards. nothing major to report , rust holes in the usual places and a few dings that have been bogged up. Have been really struggling to find either Keyphos or Epiphos. I have asked at three diff auto paint suppliers and no luck. The Deoxideine does a really good job of removing surface rust but it cant get even looked at by moisture or it starts to lo
  4. So I finally found some time (with all this rain) to get down to steel and tube and pick up a length of 50 x 50 x 2.5 RHS for the rotisserie / turntable ? Got it all cut up on the el band saw , with the customary bucket and disk break prop on the far end. Most of it is tacked up and will be going over to a mates who has a grunty-er welder to finish up.
  5. Hi 1vaknd. Thanks for the info. The blasting guys will be painting it in epoxy after blasting using Carboguard 504. https://altexcoatings.com/list-products.php?mid=12 So I need something that will keep the metal "clean" of rust while I work over the car until it is at the point that it can go to the blaster. They reckin that while blasting if there is any surface rust they can just "sweep" over it and it will be gone so heres to hoping.
  6. Yip will be painting in the same white , wheels engine etc. I actually really like it as is , just need to get the hidden cancer out of it and save her for at least my lifetime.
  7. So.. After talking to the panel beater I will be using he recommended a blasting company that he knows and trusts. I went down and had a chat with the guys at the blasting company and they will do the job but are not really that keen on doing car body work , they are more of a commercial set up . Seems that no one in Tauranga really wants to media blast car bodies after talking to a few other blasting outfits. car owners are too high maintenance as far as blasting goes etc etc as well as the risk of damaging panels. To even get the job done (blasting) I will n
  8. Another "before" pic
  9. worst of the rust. nothing major but in c# of a spot. The rest of the rust is small spots that have bubbled under paint, unfortunately its in every single individual panel. Hence the media blasting and re paint.
  10. Prepping for heart removal surgery
  11. Ha cheers rb drifter ! The hubs polish up real nice and the white walls will be getting a refurb for final effect.
  12. Ok so here is the ke20 project I have been saving all my fun tokens in the dont tell mum fund for. I initially bought it in WA Straya while working over there. From the pics you will wonder why it needs to become a project again as it looks finished and clean .... however.... after about a year of ownership bubbles of rust started popping up and as is the way the more you look the more you start to find. Im thinking that the previous owner had a sketchy re spray done over bad metal. I brought it with me when I decided to move home to NZ , which firmly planted it in
