      was under the car struggling to work on the under body and convinced my dad to build a rotisserie

      first off steel some wood, we scored old fence posts

      okay this is where i stand and need some advice, this is my first build of this kind for the record...

      i have cleaned the underside off the car, and want to spray it with some sort of product but am unsure of what would be best, do i want it to stay flexible? or something that's going to be hard like rocker guard

      any input would be great


      these are the 2 products i have used so far the one on the left i did the wheel wells with and the one on the right it what i did my engine bay in

      was looking at these as well... i have used the one on the right b4 and it drys hard

      what i am going to be spraying

      should have seen the neighbors driving by real slow..... is that car on its side

      I am using POR15, then self etching primer, then finally 3m rattle can undercoating. I have finished the wheel wells and most of the under side of the car. When reassembling the car i was pretty rough on it and it didnt really even scuff. One tip though, wear gloves I looked like I whacked off Buckwheat for like three weeks.

      okay its just i am going to spray it as is i am not taking off all the original factory coating like some people chose to do

      u think i can get by without the primer, whats the purpose of the primer


    11. 05-21-2009 12:57 AM #11
      the self etching is just a lil added insurance that the undercoating sticks really well and it is only el cheapo undercoating too. Not absolutely ness, but made me feel better? The instructions on the POR15 said to do it if painting over top of it was desired. Plus I had a few extra cans laying around

      Since you have a rotisserie it's easy, I would grind off all the old undercoat (hard job), POR-15 (or local equivalent) the whole bottom (maybe engine bay too), and then spray it with rubberized undercoat. it'll last forever

      I say Diesel! AAZ, is that the NA 1.9?

      Mint green is an awesome color, pretty rare... Canada only! Yours is only the second I've seen actually. Is it the 92?

      Calypso os lighter, more minty. THis is a little closer to teal or a "Surf Green" color.

      i say LINE-X the bottom. it will be practically bullet proof and will really lower road noise.
      How does a rotary work? This one's easy: the magic triangle spins in the peanut and then apex seals come out.

    22. 05-22-2009 01:17 AM #22
      yea that is an option. I went the Dynamat route with my PJ. Whisper quiet, high end feel. Ive road in luxury cars with more road noise and exhaust note than my car. POR15 + rubberized undercoating+ Dynamat= complete silence inside the car. Spend the money you wont be disappointed, trust me.

      what were the steps you took to stripping and painting your engine bay? i have yet to clean mine in order to prep it for painting. What you used and steps would be greatly appreciated.

      clean that bay like crazzy
      grind all rust, or sandblast,
      use some serious rust paint on places that had rust
      i used rust bullet u could use por 15 ect

      then spray with your favorite color or product of paint
