    Preppin' the bare metal spots with POR metal prep, coating with Mastercoat rust sealer, POR primer, topcoating with Rustoleum.

    I bet that will work good. It's funny we all go different routes on coatings. I really like the eastwood rust encapsilator platinum. Top coated in the rust-oleum. I almost didn't top coat it cause I liked the color of the platinum but I am glad I did the rust-oleum smoke gray gives it a nice finished look.

    I just learned about the Mastercoat products last week; I'm impressed by what I see, looks like good stuff.

    I've been prepping the frame for spot repairs. The frame is in good condition, but several very small areas where the epoxy is cracked and/or flaking. Since I have the frame stripped, I want to be as thorough as possible so I'm examining the entire frame closely.

    On my last car, I used Prep & Etch, POR-15 rust sealer, POR-15 primer (has a nice build to match the original epoxy thickness,) then Rustoleum topcoat.

    I recently learned about Mastercoat, and saw a comparison test against POR-15 and other coatings. I also read some user experiences that were positive. It appears to outperform POR-15, plus it appears to be able to be used over many different coatings/surfaces, and can be topcoated with anything.

    I'll prep with POR's metal prep, coat the bare spots with Mastercoat Rust Sealer, prime with Rustoleum Professional Primer, topcoat with Rustoleum Smoke Grey.

    I'm going to do the underside of the closing plate first.

    I finished painting the frame, just touching up a few spots as I go.

    I prepped the bare spots with a few coats of Mastercoat rust sealer, 1 coat of Rustoleum professional series primer, filler primer where needed, then 3 coats of Rustoleum Smoke Gray (Professional series.) I have a painter friend who set me up with a painting rig that sprayed the paint without thinning it.

    I just started reassembly; haven't done much, but I'm pointed in a forward direction and building momentum:

    I have a lot of miscellaneous parts ready as well, one very satisfying example is the brakes:

    Here's a pic of the tow loop I made to replace the broken one:

    Wonder how they broke the tow hook? Wouldn't think they were mud bogging in the car. Lol

    I see your in NYS. Anywhere ne'er the Adirondack mountains? I'm heading that way in a couple days. (In the D)

    I have one broken on my car. Looks like it's been that way for years. It's on one side of the loop before the weld. I think some must have been flawed.

    Going to Morehouse. It's not too big. It's near a place called Higgins Bay.
