I bought a PC kit not that long ago.
Did some things you can't really paint easily, like pulleys
or paint never works on, like an intake.

But I think it still chips way too easy.

I'm back to POR-15 for anything that will be abraded.
(if Rust Bullet is similar, but doesn't fade, that may be the
way to go). Yeah, it fades, but nothing else ever seems to happen to it.
Cage has been pushed up against 100 of trees and the trees
always lose.

I thought about POR15 but like you said im pretty sure its not UV resistant and needs topcoated anyway.

Moot point, i just finished painting the bumpers this morning (Eastwood Extreme Chassis Black). Weather has kept me from making much progress on that end. We had 5 separate storms yesterday alone!

I hung the full doors from the red cab on the bronco today, they are full of small dings & dents but i think they will be easier to fix than the white doors. Disassembled the front fender wells, and removed the front clip as well. Weather permitting, monday im going to start priming/painting the liners. The inside of the fenders will be black along with the firewall so i need to finish that too. I also need to get these doors adjusted to the tub and then i guess ill start pulling dents.

Nice,.. Maybe you told me, but what color(s) are you painting the body?

Ford Magnetic. Everything else black: door handles, all trim, flares, etc. The top is gonna be black. Planning on putting the racing stripes back on, and definitely the depth markings too. I found a PC color thats pretty close to the Ford color (we think anyway), which the 16.5s are getting coated in, hopefully in the next couple weeks. If it looks good, then later on i may re-do the 17s as well as the radius arms and some other parts.

Sounds like an F-35 stealth paint scheme.

Maybe
Im pretty excited, i think its gonna look awesome when done.




Since everyone likes pics:



Bumpers getting painted:




Rear all done:


the front is done, its on a cart in the garage. I need to roll it outside tomorrow, so ill snap a good pic then.

I yanked the front clip off and primed all the wheel well pieces, tomorrow (weather permitting) theyll get some chassis black on them too.

I hung and aligned the red doors to the cab; they need a little love with the hammer, but i dont think they need any rust repair at all



Theres a couple small dents in the hood, but i dont think that needs any rust repair either.



my biggest problem now, is im not a body guy so while i want it perfect, im not sure i have the skill to do it. Also, its gonna end up getting pinstriped in the woods anyway, so it really doesnt need to be perfect. So basically, its a battle against my OCD

The best advice I can give you on body work, is buy some long blocks like the Dura Blocks shown below. They come in different sizes & shapes, but is the only way to get things straight IMO.


When I was fourteen years old, I was amazed at how unintelligent my father was. By the time I turned twenty-one, I was astounded at how much he had learned in the last seven years
