I expect to see lots of chrome attached soon. Congrats. Now you will lay awake at night thinking what has to be done next!!!
Use water and then wipe with white vinegar will neutralize the acid,No mineral spirits or lacquer thinnerAfter almost 2 years of owning Mr Repodude's 65 wagon, I started the process of stripping it down today.
I started with a hood I got from Nightshade. I'd been to Lowes and gotten a variety of sanding discs for my grinder. I started with those but nothing really seemed to be working as well as I'd hoped. So I switched to the Aircraft Paint Stripper. I think the first few coats I did were too thin. The original paint came off but the e-coat or primer wouldn't budge, so I sanded it off. I have concerns that too much of that will warp the metal.
Here's a picture of the hood after 5 hours of work. I think it might take years to strip the whole car.
So I washed it down with water (per the instructions on the stripper) and have some DuPont Etch Primer to spray on it so it doesn't rust. It is very humid out today, so I may wait until around 6 or 7 to actually paint it. I don't have any paint-prep, can I wipe it down with mineral spirits or should the water be enough?
Nothing custom, just off the rack 14x6 VN1054661 Torque Thrust D wheels with P185/75R14 tires.Nice wagon. What is the tire and wheel combination and backspacing?
