Hey there,

I have all of the pieces to mine.  Can you tell me how to put it back
together?  I know HOW it goes together, what I don't know is how I'm
going to get it all to 'stay' while I snap it back together.  Did you
use some kind of weak glue to hold it until you got it snapped together?

thanks,

Matt Spittle

Hi guys, I havent posted for awhile but Ive had nothing to say until 
today. Well my car just got delivered from CA to PJ Gradys this 
morning. Just to rehash things its the one with 89 miles, Rob said 
it is remarkably preserved, inches away from concourse or rather 
afew $$$. The rubber is all moist and pliable the tires are the 
original NCT's still soft with no flat spots and the interior is as 
new. He was also suprised to see that such an early build date has 
such a nice fit and finish, the car is at his shop for the next week 
or so having the recalls done. Im thinking of making it a concours 
contender, even though im going to have it lowered. I just want to 
thank everyone for their help and advice over this grueling process 
of finding this car.....there are still some really nice cars out 
there waiting to be discovered...this car was never titled until 2 
months ago, Im glad to say i finally have a VIN #.  See you guys at 
concours

Greg,

This is exactly what I did.  I couldn't remove the epoxy with chemicals 
(paint remover), tried sand blasting, which didn't work.  Asking the 
galvanizing shop to dip the frame to burn off the epoxy was a no-no. 
 The method is very much discouraged, due to the immense amount of 
smoke.  The only way to remove the epoxy for me was to blast the frame 
with volconic ash.  This was very sharp and can cut the epoxy.  The next 
method was to dip the frame in zinc.  There are many companies that do 
this sort of thing, you can start a search in 
"http://www.thomasregister.com/" under galvanizing.  To epoxy powder 
coat, you need to etch the zinc for the epoxy to stick.  After all this, 
I still undercoated the frame.

Subject: Re: Thinking of putting CD Player in Driver Comparment....

I actually got a Qwestar RF modulated 10 disk CD player today and it is 
amazing.  Circuit City is selling them at $90--and it fits perfectly in the 
compartment behind the seat.  The CD sound quality played great on the 
original Craig radio, I never thought it would be so good.  Anyway, here is the 
link in case any of you want one while they are on sale.  http://

Thanks for all of the suggestions,

Greg,

It would be fabulous on the areas covered by both processes.  The 
problem might be that both coatings are subject to having poor coverage 
where you can't see.  The Zinc is an electroplate process there 
electricity passing from the tank to the frame is responsible for the 
coating.  Where this current does not pass (line of sight) it does not 
plate.  The inside hidden spots would be poorly protected.

Likewise the powdercoat is applied electrostatically by puting an 
electrostatic change on the frame and then dusting it with oppositely 
charged powder.  The powder sticks and is subsequently melted in place.  
Great process but it is really hard to get into the really tight spots 
where you can't see.

This might be OK if you take a few additional steps.  I recently 
restored a bugeye sprite that had some long stiffening "u" sections as 
well as numerous boxed sections that were very vulnerable to rust from 
within.  After carefully blasting, priming with zinc based paint (aka: 
cold galvanizing) and a good paint job I applied undercoating to the 
places I couldn't get to.  I rigged up a spray tip on the end of a nylon 
tube.  The tube was plumbed to a pressure tank filled with undercoating  
(valved as required).  I then carefully fed the spray tip into the blind 
area, turned on the spray and slowly pulled out the tube thereby coating 
places I will never be able to reach..  The goo should have not only 
coated the insides but should also wick into the lap joints ( I had 
thinned it some). 

Powdercoat is great stuff and the zinc should only make it better.
