Should have posted sooner but still a little out of it. Can't seem to get back into it.


It's pretty cool.

Took the solder right off the car.

I went out to clean her up some and discovered she's got warts.


They all run front to back with the car, not necessarily to how the panels were stamped from the sheet. Maybe bits of solder? The colour is exact same as the body.

Looks awesome !! I had no idea it would remove lead/solder. I seem to recall that it's "nitric acid" that's used, but might be wrong because it's been a few years. You had better get into it Pugsy, and get some epoxy on there.

I'm into it now. I'm filing off a zillion freakin warts. It's like there was lead splattered all down the car as it was going down the assmebly line.

Did you have these blobs on your car?
Have you ever seen blobs like this before?

 Are you sure it's lead?? Is there any kind of mark on the other side of the panel where these warts are? I never had any issues after getting my car dipped, it just looked like a brand new body.

Edit;

You know what it might be!! I think they manually removed the lead before dipping by heating it and splashed some of it onto the body. I would call them, because I'm almost certain that the acid will not eat through lead. They probably do this so that the acid can remove any rust that may have been hiding under the lead.

 No corresponding marks inside. If it's not lead, it's molten balls of spot or arc welding.

Could be. Anyways, just got to keep filing. Not a big deal.

 

The bigger deal is learning how to lay down some lead before I hit it with epoxy. Since I'm in bare metal, I want to hit as many gaps as I can.

I need to redo the body seams but also the belt line from the back of the B pillar to just above the rear wheel arch. Overlapping seam that I can't weld and don't want to fill with bondo. Under the drip rail would be nice to hit as I can just see rust bleeding out from there.

I wouldn't use lead.IMO
I would use short strand fiberglass in place of the lead. Lead was great 60 years ago, but that's all they had. I may be wrong on this so do some research. If it was me, I would try to get a coat of epoxy on as soon as possible. Any areas to be worked later on can have the epoxy removed as needed.

Thanks.

I was thinking the same thing to epoxy it right away, but it's bare and nice now so figured it would be ideal to lead right away.

I think lead is actually good as the 2 spots on the car I removed before stripping had not a speck of rust underneath. This is 73 years later. I think I can get enough for my lifetime out of it.

I got the heat on out in the garage and the dehumidifier running all night, so she'll be fine. I'm using water and scotchbrite to remove the residual acid and I'm not getting any flash rust so we're looking good for now.

I used "All Metal" to fill the 1/4 to roof seam on the Camaro project. Worked well and from what I read before I used it, it is a popular choice.

I'd epoxy prime everything first. Then sandblast local areas, you believe need to be on steel, before filling.
Lead is no doubt old technology, and proven to be a health hazard, but like you mentioned, if it's sealed correctly, it will last many,many years.
But today, there is alternatives...

Since you mention it, I've ruled out light gray since yesterday afternoon. nodohdisbeliefbleh

Of course, red is always in the race. An off white looks good on this body style also. And I like some shades of green.

My son wants orange with flames like the one we seen on the net.

Thanks Nino.

I screwed the floor in for final check. Just need to prime a few places where the channels go and then spot weld it together.

Thanks Hannu.

I got it all spot welded and hit it with epoxy. Should be able to slide it into place tomorrow afternoon.



It's a bit wavy, but what the hey. It's only a floor pan.

Rotisserie seems to run nice and smooth. Difficult part is finding the center of gravity.

She loves the laundry chute idea when it comes from you.

It sucked when I suggested it, ha.

It's handy thing.

Easy to find the center of gravity. Just set the body sideways and hit the threaded rod adjuster and it will tilt as soon as you pass the center point. A bit of fine tuning after that and my kids can spin it. That is a problem there. They keep coming into the garage to play with it.

I'll be trying to line up the front clip with the new rockers so I can set it back on the chassis.

Thanks for continuing to post progress in this thread. Always look forward to your progress.

Not for nothing, but if Joe was a real friend..... he would build the laundry shoot so you could keep workin on this.

I'm always amazed at the talent in our "little" community. Great job Pugsy.

You got to be kidding if I build the laundry chute it will be

just a laundry chute. If Pug's builds the laundry chute

it will be a LAUNDRY CHUTE EXTRODINAIRE

My work pale's in comparison to pugsy's work
