Blow it off especially the crevasses to get the sand out/off, wipe it down with acetone and spray it with self etching primer, then spray it with rustoleum mat-black paint 2-3 coats. It will last for years.Moparbob1987 said:Frames back from the blaster looks amazing !
"Way back when"..... I did a frame up on a 90 CTD, I had to replace the frame so why not.Moparbob1987 said:Thanks ! I got lucky, I called several places got this done for 125 ! I threw in a tip and a case of beer ! every other place I called wanted 400 and up.
Moparbob1987 said:The frame felt like rubbing your hand on a fingernail file. I used the compressor to blow out all the crevices sanded everywhere it would reach with 60 grit on a da. Wiped it down with acetone let it sit about 10 minutes then wiped it again with wax and grease remover tomorrow I'm going to apply two coats of Eastwood gray epoxy primer, the outside frame rails I'm going to coat with raptor liner the inside of the frame and crossmembers in semi gloss black rustoleum industrial paint and all the suspension pieces gloss black rustoleum. I bought a quart of rustoleum aluminum silver for the brake dust shields and some other parts. It's going to be a long process but I plan on keeping this truck I'm 55 so I want to finish it one time just how I want it.
