I would paint everything. Undercoat will crack letting water in and starting rust. Flaking paint is better than undercoating because the water doesn't get trapped. Paint flakes off and surface rust comes after. Undercoating cracks gives you no signs and traps the water under it causing rust.Signguy97 said:After all the comments I think I am going to epoxy prime and paint the underside satin black, the spray some undercoating in the wheelwells, thanks guys
Extremely jealous of how easy that looks to work on with the whole cab standing on end like that.Signguy97 said:Plugging along here, got the underside of the body all cleaned up. It is in really good shape so not many repairs to do, replaced two body mounts and added two more on the next rib up. Acouple of repairs to the lower fenders and it's ready for some type of undercoating.
The body itself isn't that heavy, maybe a thousand pounds, there is an overhead hoist on that I beam above, I lifted it most of the way with that then pushed it to lean on the column with a forklift. It made it very easy to work on.Moparbob1987 said:That body looks heavy how did you lift it up on end
