It is a 2k basecoat / clear. The Green is a Sherwin Williams ATX urethane and the Moonbeam Beige Metallic is a PPG Omni. The clear coat is Southern Polyurethanes High Solids Clear. ( I love this clear and their other products, priced right and high quality)

Your looking at my booth setup! That is also why I always cut and buff my paint. If a bug lands in it the cut an buff takes care of 90%. For being a driveway spray, I always get asked, who did you paint? Would you do mine? (I only do my own). So objectively, it has to be pretty good. As for gun I love my DeVilbiss GTI, I think now called DeVilbiss GTI Millennium.

I believe that is referring not the gear teeth but on brass synchro to gear interface.

If you are setting the glass in the channel a tip is to use kerosene. Wipe the Rubber/Tar strip on both sides before inserting into channel/Glass. It allows the parts to slide a bit more easily together and then grabs when dried.

Fortunately I have a lift. I use a floor jack and 6x6 to lift about 1” and slide lift arms underneath and lift off cart.

As Mel mentioned, if you want to get rid of rust Rust 911 will remove it. Depending on where the rust is, it might require a “contraption” to collect the liquid. I ended up with a kiddie swimming pool as one of my collectors. In the link above that Mel posted, when I did my floors, I thought that they were “solid” but realized that there were pinhole rust spots and the next morning the liquid

Finally done with all the sheet metal repair and manipulation. Should require minimal filler to even things out. If the weather holds out tomorrow I can epoxy prime.

Finally found a hood relatively close to me in excellent shape. I had come out of California and the guy had it in inside storage for 30 years. Stripped it fully, epoxy primed, sanding primer and painted. The color is 69 Fathom Green.

Just dawned on me, on my 62 700 wagon, there is no holes in the door where a drivers side mirror would mount. I double checked the inside of the door and there is no evidence of previous holes. Needless to say, I was quite surprised, I though the outside mirror was required.

I am curious which you will like better. It appears the Denco uses Naphtha/Acetone and the SQ uses Toluene/Acetone. In a search: Naphtha Naphtha is a solvent that is half as strong as toluene. This substance is used as a general purpose solvent and has various other applications. For instance, naphtha has been used in lighter fluid because of its flammability.
