I am sure glad my body was about rust free, That is more work then I want to do. I shouldn't bitch about the little body work i have to do when i see the time you have in.

By the wayCremenga, what's your opinion on the por-15 stuff?I asked them for a catalog 2 weeks ago and still haven't gotten one. Are you using anything else besides the black.

First of all agemeansnothing, that is a foolish comment!!LOL there is no such thing as to much power!!! And MadKaw, ya I love the POR-15, i'm using it on absolutely everything!!!!! I use the back and I have some top coat but as soon as I get the subframe conectors in i'm going to spray it on so we will see how that goes!!!

Here she is, my LS1 with T56 6 speed, it has the billet pulleys and braided fuel line. It will eventually have a polished aluminum 90mm intake, and roller rockers, msd coils, the list goes on......... but till i have it paid off this is what it will look like! I also have a ton more pics in my gallery.

The console looks great. Would you clarify what type of undercoating you used to get the desired texture? Was it the typical rubberized stuff you can pick up at any auto parts store or was it something that dries to a harder finish such as rhino lining?

LOL well i didn't want to give away my secrets but ok.... I grinded down all the parts I didn't want like the lip on the choke lever slot, then sanded it and the surrounding area, then grinded the cracks out larger and sanded, then gave it all a light sanding. I then took fiberglass resin/bondo and filled in tall the cracks and holes i didn't want. Let dry and sanded smooth, wiped it down with some tack cloth and blew it off good with the air compressor. I then used the regular rubberized under coating from your local parts store and sprayed it lightly. THIS IS THE IMPORTANT PART!!!!!!! DO NOT SPRAY IT TO CLOSE TO THE CONSOLE, STAY BACK A DISTANCE AND DO LIGHT LIGHT COATS!!! ALSO TAKE A SHOP TOWEL AND AFTER EACH SPRAY CHECK THE NOZZLE TO MAKE SURE THERE IS NO BUILD UP OF THE UNDER COATING WHATS SO EVER ON THE LITTLE SPRAY BUTTON. IF THERE IS WIPE IT OUT CLEAN, BC IF YOU DON'T IT WILL BUILD UP AND EVENTUALLY SPRAY OFF CAUSEING A LARGE BLOB ON YOUR NICE EVEN COATINGS. THE OTHER THING I LEARNED IS IF YOU GET A BLOB OR A SPOT YOU DON'T LIKE, LEAVE IT ALONE ITS NOT THAT BAD YOU WILL ONLY MAKE IT WORSE BY TRYING TO TOUCH IT WHEN ITS WET!!! TRUST ME I TRIED!!! THEN AFTER THAT DRIED SPRAY IT WITH VERY VERY THIN COATS OF BLACK SEMI GLOSS PAINT, THE KIND THAT STICKS WELL TO PLASTIC. HERE IS MY FINAL VERY INPORTANT TIP, DO NOT TOUCH IT FOR LIKE A WEEK AFTER YOU SPRAY IT WITH PAINT BC THAT RUBBERIZER AS AIR IN IT AND THE PAINT SEALS IT AND IF YOU TOUCH IT BEFORE EVERYTHING IS ALL CUED AND DRIED IT MAKES LITTLE AIR POCKETS UNDER THE PAINT!! BIG PAIN IN THE arse TOO!!!! I figured out all the does and don't by practicing on old consoles I had laying around! When done it looks very very clean and neat. Mine turned out way better than i planed, and the holes i filled in turned out to be impossible to see where they once were. If I were going to do it over I would prob. use some sort of hi textured paint instead of undercoating It has to be way easier than trying to not mess up with that touchy stuff!!! Good luck!!
