Sorry, I'm on my phone and it's clunky copying links over. That's the stuff that I found works really well. There's one of those 3M coatings that can be painted over, I can't recall which, so check their website, if you plan to paint over it.

Personally, I think it doesn't need to be topcoated if not directly exposed to UV.

Thanks! I will proceed to do this. Iíve always feared the rubber coating as Ií worry mouisture and water can stay trapped and then Iíll end up with just the coating and no more metal.

Sonny asked me about alternatives to sanding the rust in a PM.

POR-15 my man, learn it, use it, love it.

The primer is essential. It makes the barrier between metal and coating.

Keep in mind, I live in Louisiana, it never snows, and we never see salt on the roads.

So steps listed in order to repair slight surface rust in your experience

Por-15
Primer
Undercoating


All nailed down thank you!



Now the fender itself has some rust from chipped paint, Iíll be using the same method and replacing the undercoating with paint.

Thank you!

M10 is officially finished and rustproofed!

Need to get started on the $600 M20 build from 2 months ago



lovely McLaren, itís stunning but you can never beat the attention grabbing E30 .


Curious question what engine swap would be worth the effort without a high chance of completely bricking the car and never to run again. No crate order rotary, even thought thatís what I really want. Junkyard pulls only if thereís a good suggestion

Why are you saying now that you could never sell the M10 but in the nonsense thread you said you are going to grenade the engine for a youtube video?

All day on R3V, baby, pure bliss
We working on the E30s nights like this
bald tires like my balance never needs a grip
All day on R3V,baby, pure bliss
Soon to cruise together at a night like this
Driving around considered a slow whip
Redline it single bottle cap spin and clutch slips
And that's real shit, we keep it real, shit
Slow E30s, kinda like my own clique
youd want a fast one, ainít cheap but fun
All these E30s have me love struck
Check engine on, timing belt gone
Buy the E30s, they ain't gonna last long
E30 can make you, E30 can break you
think of all the places It can take you..
