Marty I recommend a good epoxy primer. My choice for my 56 is PPG DP-48. It
is a little expensive but excellent against moisture penetration. Then I
recommend a good primer/surfacer after the epoxy primer.

try self etching primer on anything that's not sandblasted to white
metal, this stuff is a two part mix, that has an acid that works on the
chemistry of any rust left after sanding. If the vehicle is going to be
exposed outside during the work, it needs something over the self etch.
Epoxy primer works real good on sandblasted metal, and CLEAN old steel.
I used red oxide once, most awful stuff to cover up later that I ever
saw, and gives a funny cast to most finish paint. I don't use anything
except gray now. I've always used a final coat of non sanding primer
sealer over the whole mess just before finish painting. This is usually
a synthetic enamel, slightly reduced, and quite fast drying. You can
finish coat it in 20 min to 1/2 hour. Epoxy two part primer sealer is
supposed to be real good, but I've never done a whole car in it,
although I did prime some parts of the '47 with it.

Don, could be a transmission cooler hose, I have a fordomatic, and there is
a cooling hose that connects to the cooler on the top of the transmission
behind the torque converter/flywheel housing. See you later, Byron

Brian - please tell us more about your Aerostar suspension installation! How tough
was it to install? What needed cutting or modification? How does it handle? How much
did you have to spend? Any other tips? It sounds like a great option.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - disc brakes, low $$$$$

I've found a Lincoln Versailles (souped up Grenada) with a 9" posi rear end has
disc brakes that is expected to work pretty well. That's for my rear end. I
don't know the best way to work the front, with the exception of replacing the
front clip. We were fortunate enough to locate a Ford Aerostar that had seen
better days and was ready for retirement. With a little work, the whole unit
bolts up to the stock frame. It rides a little higher than the standard
bug-killer, but it looks like it grew there. Plus I didn't have to pay $1500
for a Mustang II clip.

Hi folks,
Coul anyone please advise me of the width of the box wood planks. I am
going to make my own up vs. buying them precut and grooved.
Thanks in advance,

Marty,
Paints have come a long ways; get a current paint catalog from your
jobber. Use a metal etch and a quality epoxy primer like PPG DP40.
Nasty stuff, but incredible adhesion.
Good Luck!
Brett
