Home Built Z 'Full video build'

Recommended Posts


This week I work away at finishing that terrible door. It is a lot of rust and a lot of work, but I am stubborn enough to keep at it.

Possibly, but it would be super slow. The problem with MIG welds is that they are really hard, which is why they take so much grinding.

Jeff I have used this wire and had good results with it

Wow, that looks very interesting. I will have to have a look at that for the future. It is a pity I am basically done.

This week I gave paint stripper another go, and it works much better if it there are not 20 layers of paint and bog. The whole car is almost rust free now, just a couple of small bits to go.

Try the Eastwood Internal Frame Coating for those inside areas of rust you can’t get to Jeff. Works great and creeps really well. It also comes with an application hose/wand.

I have looked at that. The issue is that I have to import Eastwood products to Australia and they get expensive once you start adding shipping and duties, etc.

Nice work on the front end Jeff. I would really like to see you do your magic on the old front bumper. I have one in similar shape that I plan on doing the same too. I was thinking of trying to chrome powder coat it when I was done though. I’ve had good success with the Eastwood product.

I am happy painting mine. I think a chrome powder coat would look good on small things, but I am not confident it would look good on big things. Also Eastwood products are not available in Aus, so shipping and duties, etc, makes them expensive.

I’ll give it a go. I can always paint it after if it doesn’t look right. But yes, importing their products is like doubling the prices plus the exchange rates.
