    It's just regular fiberglass so I wouldn't go any coarser than 100 grit and use 220 for the final sanding prior to painting. On mine I painted with flat black rustoleum topped with flat clear coat...

    Your original complaint was that you were losing Freon over a one month period. I don't think I would jump to replacing the hoses just yet. Did you run green dye through

    I don't recommend keeping and reusing the original clamps or even 10 year old clamps. While running my car I noticed a growing puddle under the right front of the radiator. When I looked for the...

    The first check should be the coolant. If it's the green prestone coolant that has not been changed for 5 or more years there's a good chance of rot. The coolant should have been changed over to...

    I don't think you are going to get any sympathy from the guys in the business. The point still is, if it's going to cost more than the estimate they legally have to

    I hope you meant to type 2000 grit wet sandpaper and not 200 grit dry sandpaper. If you did use 200 grit you are going to have to wet sand with 1000 and then 2000. Then using a orbital polisher...
