Any blocking kits anyone can reccommend?
What about DA's?
The guy I bought it from seemed to be trying to maybe do a panel at a time or something. As you can see he put the mud on the bottom of the doors, and primed the car in certain areas? Any recommendations on what products i should look into?
Where should I start with the car?
Show off your work! Anything from final results to full start-to-finish project journals.
Well I picked up a used Campbell hausfeld air compressor its used, 80gallon but they cheaped out on the motor when the motor went bad instead of installing a 7hp like it called for they installed a 3hp... So I might need to change the motor :/ or maybe I will be ok.
Is there a certain blocking kit that comes with an assortment of different lengths I would commonly need?
What grit should I start with to remove any peeling clear and to scuff the already applied primer? Should I be using a DA on this first scuffing of the car before I spray epoxy primer? Or should I only use a DA to grind down the filler that the guy applied?
If I start sanding on the car in its current state(before me spraying a coat of primer), will that allow for me to apply filler or do I need to:
remove the old filler
then sand and apply filler as needed?
Sry for the millions of questions
Is this a good blocking kit? http://www.amazon.com/Autobody-Dura-Blo ... +block+kit
Welcome, it's an exciting time of any project... Imagining what if might be
A lot of you questions are answered in the general articles for newbies on this Page http://www.autobody101.com/content/auto ... -articles/
If you haven't read them I highly recommend you do, if you have, read 'em again as there is a wealth of knowledge there, too much to be absorbed in one reading.
re. Sanding blocks, I highly recommend dura blocks as well, you can get them in sets of 6 or 7 with all of the sizes you need.
Remove the filler that is there, clean & prepsol (or equivalent) the raw metal then seal with epoxy primer, that will protect it from moisture & you can apply filter over it when the time comes.
Best of luck with the project
So whats the best option for me to heat my garage. I already have a Unit Heater I can use, or a radiant tube heater.
Unit heater has no duct work but has an open flame and a blower fan to push air around.
Easy to mount
Blows air around so could cause dust to get into the paint, although I kinda plan to have it on the otherside of the plastic sheets I want to hang in my garage to make a booth, or to just protect the garage walls. So maybe it won't get anything in he paint if I set it up a certain way.
Radiant Tube Heater:
Pros: doesnt blow air around
Has a flame but its not open to the environment as much as the unit heater.
Harder to install, have to hang almost 30' ft of tubing.
Takes a little longer to heat the garage, might not be as even of a heat since once I turn it off everything will still be hot and radiating.
Takes up more space
I just don't know which one to pick. I'm leanin towards the unit heater because it will be easier to install
I'm probably going to go the unit heater route.
Besides that, I'm in the process of running 230v to my attached garage.
My kitchen which is on the otherside of the wall from the garage used to have an electric stove, so it had a 220 line for it thats no longer needed. I decided since my garage already has outlets and some lighting that I'm just going to use the old kitchen 230 line, pull it back into the basement and drill a hole into the garage and run it that way. Any thoughts on this?
So I bought a 6" neumatic hand sander DA, it has the hook and loop style backing pad, can anyone recommend a good brand of sand paper for this sander? Where's the best place to buy them from?
