I have my cuda blasted and was wondering what is the best way to treat places like between the roofskin and roof structures? The car is on a rotisserie if that might make the treatment process easier.Thanks
Well I looked at it before taking measurements and realize there is no need to. On the inside of the roof pillars roughly near center you will find a flat spot with three raised bumps this was for the factory workers to locate the part perfectly every time. One on the bottom and one on each side. you should also be able to find marks from the removal of the original part.Ospho is thin and will run in between the panels. Forms a pretty hard black surface that after a quick wipe down takes primer well. I do recommend priming and painting anywhere you can get to after using it. I've been using it on my son's Tacoma frame and if not painted, the part may continue to rust a few weeks after treatment. I've heard good things about Corroseal for frame rust but it is a gel and still should be painted afterwards. The easiest way is to dip the car to clean it and then dip again in primer but that is not a cheap effort.
Props on your roof structure effort. That had to take some patience. Mine looks about like that but it's still attached to the rest of the car. Any chance I could get some pics and measurements on the position of the center cross bar? Mine was removed for the installation of a flip up sun roof back in the day. I found a replacement and would like to make sure it goes back where it should.
How hard was it to get the whole roof skin off and was it still usable or did you replace?
Why would you remove and reuse the roof skin? I did a roof skin on my 71 Challenger, it had many dents and was very rusty underneath. It was not too bad of a job because you get to stand up next to the car and have great access.How hard was it to get the whole roof skin off and was it still usable or did you replace?
