I was a member on TFFN back when it was a news letter. This was a long time ago. David started bashing his neighbours for being Mexicans. I couldn't bother with the B.S. anymore. He also had a glitch and the newsletter was sent to everyone hundreds and hundreds of times. In ten minuets I received it in my in-box 400+ times. I ended up blocking it to stop it.

The whole thing sounds like the Crosley group. Unless you are one of the anointed ones you get shouted down or treated like something that dropped out of a dogs butt.

Words to live by "Your name is in the title so you can do what you like with it". Also advice is great but lectures aren't much fun lol.

You are doing such a great job that it might cause some sour grapes on their part. Keep up the work and enjoy the car Very Happy

Amen brother Rollers......this is suppose to be fun and not everyone is a top notch mechanic. To me that's half the fun helping some out. The ego maniacs ruin it for everyone.

Back at it. All the body and dent work finished on the front fenders, doors & hood. Fenders back on. Got the first coat of Rusto primer rolled on tonight. Tomorrow I'll block it with 320 and find all the spots I missed.
I'll post pics tomorrow.

Yes. The primer is very thick and fills a lot of minor imperfections. When you roll it straight from the can it dries with a very rough finish as seen in the pic below. I block sand it with 150 and a guide coat of black primer to check for waves and pits. Once I'm done blocking I use spray can primer to hit the spots I break through on or that need more filling. Then I'll sand the entire panel with 320.


You can see the texture in the primer.


As you can see from the amount of sanding dust how thick the primer goes on


Spot primed with Rusto Auto Primer.


Love this stuff.....

Dave as for posting pics here, you need a photobucket account its free, upload your pics there, then copy the img tag, then paste in your post.

The Falcon is coming along nice.

After 2 weeks of priming, sanding, priming sanding, priming sanding I'm finally ready to roll the rest of the car. I'm 3 weeks behind schedule on this project.
Here are a few pics I took yesterday. Back half is done, all rubbed, puffed and put back together minus the trunk lid which is all painted but not wet sanded yet.
I'm liking the lowered front end. I cut 1 coil off. Looks much better.

Isn't it weird how much the look of the car changes with a simple change in stance? It looks so much more aggressive. The factory stance looks so odd.

With that red trim, and the red on the wheels, I don't think you will need any graphics like scallops. It will be striking enough.

I know, 1 coil thats all it took and it looks soooo much better. The 13" golf cart tires don't help the cause much.....

I agree....too much and it will look like an Easter egg rolling down the road.....I'm just going to have some traditional pin striping done on the hood & trunk lid and leave it at that.

Back to rolling paint. I changed things up a little. I changed my mix to 1 part paint, 1/4 part MS and a splash of Penetrol. No hardener. I'll add hardener to my 8th, 9th & 10th coat. The paint flowed out great.
I rolled the 1st coat, let it tack up for 30 minutes then rolled a second. I'm very happy with the results so far, hardly any orange peal.
Here are a few pics.




Here I cut in with a spray can.


My weapons......








Got up at 4:30AM and rolled coat 3, sorry no pictures.
