Agravation of the day.

Yesterday I lovingly cleaned, primed, and painted my virgin Moser rear.......today I examined it and it looks like excrement!!!!...SO, tomorrow I will take it apart, have it blasted then powdercoated, spend another million dollars, put it back together, and install it.....Then we'll see who wins this battle, ME or IT...as there is NO WAY picture 1 is going into picture 2......

Wow looks like it was lifting or reacting to something under it. Was it bare metal and did you use a primer? Silver paint can be problematic anyway, and it will show every little detail under it. Things gotta be SMOOOOOOOTH for silver.

Cant wait to see that thing done.

Looks good Eric. I hear you on perfection. Makes me giggle to think the first time you drive it through a puddle or get caught in the rain and the 10 hours of detailing to follow! You tried to paint your rear end with a rattle can and then wonder why it looks like a turd. It would be alright, but not durable enough to live in your build.. No reason to skimp on the final steps.. It will be sick!

Burning rubber since 1982!!
My photobucket, lots of dif car pics.

Jet, I agree. The reason I painted it is because it is a brand new rear, set up at the "factory' by Moser. I didn't want topull it apart to p'coat it.....live and learn. My engine guy does rear ends "every day" so he will take care of that for me....gotta wait till next week because the p'coater is closed for vacation this week.....almost there. Eric

I used to rattle can stuff all the time too. But when I discovered the joys of having my own compressor and squirting stuff with professional paint guns, I never went back. I have yet to find a "local guy" for powder coating, I would love to have some stuff for Marilyn done in PC.

Exactly how much more durable is powder coating than a quality paint job and clear coating?
