Subject: FTE Pre61 - Mixing Primer with Clearcoat?

I posted this to the old list--apologies if it somehow gets posted twice.

At a car show I regularly go to, I keep seeing a 40 pickup with really
nice, flat black paint. A friend of mine suggested that it was probably
painted with black primer with some clearcoat mixed in. That makes sense
because the texture and look of this paint job was so different. Anyway,
I'm playing with the idea of painting my 50 like that and I've got some
questions. First, if it's mixed with clearcoat, it's not really primer
anymore is it? In other words, you can't shoot color over it and expect it
to stick, right? So it'd basically be a finish coat. And if it's a finish
coat, does it need a primer coat? I'd appreciate input from anybody whose
done this or knows something about it. Thanks.

Years ago when paint was poor and money short, hot rods were just primered and
left at that. You can still do it if you're going to toss the car in a year or
two. Primer seals the substrate and provides a bonding surface for the final
topcoats, it also absorbs moisture, which promotes rust, and weathers quickly,
which promotes bare metal, which promotes rust. Look at the '78-87 Chevy
trucks running around with imported replacement doors, which many people don't
paint, and you'll see what I mean.To get a "Primered" paint job, you do the
whole prep job just like usual, but the top coats are mixed with flatting
agent, sometimes called "sunburn" agent. This product, used by all paint stores
to produce flat or semi gloss paint is what gives the primer look. The more you
use the flatter it gets, it can be used with any color, but usually red or
black. It works on one-shot jobs like acrylic enamel, or on base-clear, in
which case the clear is flattened.

Web chat is back up. This new chat is simpler than the last

Subject: FTE Pre61 - adjusting doors

All right, I know this may be beyond basic, but I wonder if anyone can talk
to me about adjusting the doors so they fit better into the cab. My
passenger side door tilts down at the lock so I can see sky (about 3/8") and
the seal doesn't meet the frame.

This means two things: 1) the door whistles when I get up to 45 mph; and 2)
I get some rain inside the cab.

I found access to the three bolts in the door, closed the door, loosened the
bolts top and bottom; used a clamp to raise the door up to its proper level
and then tightened. Didn't work.

Then did the same, but with the door opened and propped up. When the bolts
were loose, I raised the back of the door, re-propped, tightened, and viola!
Still too low in the back.

Didn't mess with the two bolts holding the hinge assembly to the cab yet.
They didn't seem to want to move much when loose, 'course they have been
painted in, too.

Harrumph. Any other suggestions?

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Switchin' to a big block

Right now I have a 351W in my '51 F-1 and I'm thinking about buying my
friends 429. He says it puts out around 400 hp or more. I was
wondering what kinds of modifications I would have to do to get it in
and handle the increased power. I have a C-6 but would I have to have
it made stronger. The engine is a 4 bolt main.
