    What Paint To Use On The Frame

    I have used POR15 as well and I like it. You can buy it in a pack of small cans instead of big quart/gallon which solves the problem of it going bad on you. I brushed it on. Wear gloves and clothes you don’t care about and put something down for drips if you have a nice garage floor because that stuff isn’t coming off once it’s on.

    Broke mounting screw on rear taillight assembly when removing taillights for paint. Drilled out old one and installed a machine screw in its place. The parabolic reflector in the light is almost like thick tin foil and can be carefully moved/bent out of the way.

    Went to my local machine shop today and checked the progress. The cylinders did need to be bored the crank only needs to be polished. Needs new exhaust valves in the head. Needs New oversized pistons here is a pic of beautiful reconditioned block:)

    Ya I was just thinking a new AC would rob less horsepower by virtue of less weight and make it more efficient because it’s easier to turn....I’ll be doing mostly highway miles with the truck. I really appreciate the help, just incredible to have advice from gurus like Datzenmike, Draker, and Seeker. I’ve been reading your stuff for two years in anticipation of doing this 620.

    Ya I don’t want to throw old AC on a newly rebuilt motor. Looking for better cooling, horsepower and gas mileage.

    Wow! fantastic link and your write-up was extremely informative. Thank-you! This will prove to be invaluable knowledge when I get the AC going!

    Ya I looked and looked for window gaskets that would take the trim. Felt lucky to find any gaskets at all. I hope the Thailand stuff from eBay will last on the rear glass, windshield, doors etc. The opera window gaskets were pretty expensive for what they are but they seemed higher quality
