Don Church comes to town and with my long time buddy Chuck Piper we were able to get a batch of old sheet metal looking better than new.

We had quite a time at the paint store trying the get the correct color red but a few calls to fellow FFCA members Rodger Elwood and Doug Norman produced the correct paint formula.

 Let me tell you something about Don Church.  Ok we'll keep it clean here.  HE CAN PAINT !!!


When He came back to town 2/22/2009 for the flywheeler's show we painted the chassis.  He sure got into his work.


Here's some painting tips:

  • The paint I used gets mixed 8 to 1 and the primer is 4 to 1

  • Paint store recommends gun with 1.8 nozzle for Primer and 1.4 for paint

  • Bondo then sand with 36grit - 80grit - 180 grit
    Prime then sand with 180grit dry - 320grit wet
    Prime then sand with 500grit wet
