  1. looking good....paint is likely better than factory!
  2. .......crisis averted.....thanks all to wrapping up the issue and keeping it civil.
  3. Ok, please stop circling the drain on this. We know documentation does/can/might exist and we also know you can do what you want on an engine and make is still work if you know what hoops have been jumped thru. Please move on. IF this continues I will lock the thread.
  4. by then it will be such a smooth operation you'll go to 25 or 30 BBQ's! Always good to see my friends on the left coast and Tim, you are a gracious host! Till next year (but gotta plan better around the FF for this MN kid!)! 😀
  5. pictures! not a Q without fixing a truck! some bones at the yard I could pick over a few miles away (2+ hours) Tim Driving his bus! some parts I picked....yes, those are SS bars...sadly no SS parking bucket...that was carbon steel.
  6. store any POR15 in the fridge....low humindity. Also put a layer of plastic wrap on the lid when you close it so it doesn't lock the lid down. I have some POR15 that is from my build ~10 yeas ago I still dip into for small stuff. Also don't put it on unless you are well ventilated.
  7. POR15 cures with humidity....also SOME of the product is not UV stable, so be careful in where and which.
  8. good times! Had a nice relaxing time not thinking about the steaming piles of poo at work! I'll post some pics when I have time. Can't wait till next year!
  9. Few steps further along. Thinking this is how the top "corner" will be. Gaps will all have to be "normailzed" with weld wire welded to the door edges at some point. Next steps will be to skin the doors and build up the inside.
  10. Wrench well at the pearly gates Gary! Will miss him this year.
  11. define "pot metal"..... Zamak has some decent properties depending on which version picked https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zamak https://www.makeitfrom.com/compare/Grey-Cast-Iron/Zamak-3-ASTM-AG40A-Z33520-Mazak-3-Zinc-Alloy
  12. I've made parts out of several of the ZAMAK materials family. Properly designed and used they work well. But yes, WAY cheaper than cast iron.
