At this point, I'm open to just about anything - I don't have the jeep yet, but while I shop I'm getting everything lined out so I know where I'm headed when it does finally grace (or disgrace
) my driveway/garage.
Got a brand name for the epoxy primer?
I'm familiar with the look you're talking about for the old 50's rods - sounds perfect for the trail too. On top of that I already know I want to put steelies on the jeep so black steelies...and hell, I'll just blackout the whole thing - that'll make it real fun in the Houston summers!
What about application methods for the primer (have you worked with it before)? I've got several spray setups for my other "throw-cash-in-a-bottomless-pit-hobby" (aka woodworking), so I'm comfortable doing that - but what about thinning, flash time between coats..etc... I'll most likely want to use a gravity feed gun so I can get away with less cfm..the questions go on and on, but anything else you can tell me about it would be great!
Oh..got any idea how much the stuff costs?
