Remember, if you
can skin any aluminum body panel with a little bit of body
filler, the paint will stick forever.
But you have to
rough up the aluminum with 36 grit paper to assure proper
adhesion. Remember in the Florida humidity, you've got about
20 minutes after sanding before the aluminum oxidizes. If
you wait too long, filler will not stick in the long run.
Red urethane primer
has been applied and it's in the sun for a quick cure so it
can be installed back on the car.
The right pod
will be removed so I can work on it this weekend.
Here Jack and Andy
are installing the pod just to make sure it still fits perfectly
before final paint.
The final fit looks
good! Now for the other side.
Andy and Jack are
taking off the right side. The arrow points to the front cap
from the original tank. We grafted every good part from both
tanks to make the new tanks.
