  1. So in my eternal quest to powdercoat every piece of metal I can tear off. I always assumed the heat sheild under the body ( 2 pieces) were riveted on, I pulled the carpets and underneath were a bunch of zinc coated 10mm nuts! I recently acquired a vinyl cutter so I’ve been playing with designs. The square piece is the CPU cover from under the passenger seat. The coating is a base of Superchrome, Peeka Blue over that, and finally a Shattered Glass clearcoat which gives it a nice lustre... Of course if the sun is shining a lustre over my heat shield I’ve probally rolled the vehicle. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Not sure why the end pic didn’t work this app is so buggy Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Rebuilt and powdercoated all the drum brake hardware, a lot of prep work, it’s pretty I just hope it all works when I put the handbrake haha Took me awhile to remember how it all went back together, need to order the longer parking brake cable for the other side still, the old one cracked open in a couple spots and siezed the cable up.

  4. Gold Plated the ram cylinders for the rear latch because I’m nuts lol. Still saving for a engine rebuild, new manual transmission, until then I will be searching for any metal I haven’t coated in some manner. My next project will involve ceramic coatings of piston tops and possibly cylinder heads and most likely entire exhaust Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  6. Didn’t like seeing the corrosion on that metal ring inside the fan, bead blasted it, polished up to 3000 grit and then gold plated it, also I powder coated the fan clutch in a metallic blue Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. Those clips usually break off on one side and the rubber falls out, or is torn out. If you got some gasket sealer around I think even the high temp stuff would work on holding onto the rubber, just an idea i’m going to attempt on mine since interior and especially exterior rubber trim costs almost as much as what most people pay for entire vehicle.

  9. Love the angles you got of pic 4 and 5 looks like a fun time. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Just curious what is the weight on one of those legos, they look heavy, probally never heard of one cracking before Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Gold Plated the grill emblem, The 25 year old black paint is all chipped off, will probally tape off the gold and give it a nice deep black. I think I make gold plate the cylinder locks, and was thinking of the the steel part of the rear lift gate piston rams things as well, maybe even the seat belt buckles and any other metal I haven’t managed to powder coat yet, like my brake line connections, trying not to get carried away and make the Pathy to “ricer” looking haha may be too late Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
