Re: My Project Track Car PEX

They have turned out well Chris and thanks for sending them to me.
Yeah I have got my licence back which is great and my epilepsy is under control so may it stay that way.
Hoping to get him MOTed by January so that I can take him to a few shows.

Re: My Project Track Car PEX

I know that this is old news to those of you who are my friends on Facebook but back in June and July this year I thought the shell inside and out are in great condition and that the shell was resprayed in two pack back in 2012.
I thought that I haven't done any work to under side of PEX since I have owned him in the last six years I have owned him even though he has been garaged.
So I thought under sealing is ok but then you have to keep applying it every year and that's just not my bag, so I bought a big can of red oxide (military grade) and a few cans of blue Hammeright and a new wire brush and got to work.
I spent along time on the prep work as I had to get that spot on and started to apply the paint and started at the back of the car and finished a month later on at the front.
I know its a bit extreme painting the underneath but when I do come to sell PEX I want the new owner to know that it is as good under the car as it is on top.
The under side of PEX had very little rust which is excellent and it is solid.
In total he has had two coats of red oxide and two coats of blue Hammeright smooth so well protected.
Here are some pictures of the work through the project from start to finish.
