Re: :::Tassievteclude::: Tassie's 1994 JDM BB1

Most paints suggest a base coat/primer prior to the main visible coat. That's why i'm doing (2) coats of base and (1) top coat. Usually a good idea since nearly all off the shelf top coats are only good enough for a nice look, but won't last as long without good prep/primer.

The top coat I'm using can be sprayed over rust and seal everything - but i'm doing multiple steps more to make sure no stone chips etc bring rust back.



As for the nuts and bolts - Most of mine are in reasonably good shape, (minus anything 10mm that i'm afraid to reuse and break) so i'm going to experiment with some old bolts outside and see what holds up better: ES bushing grease, Wolfs head water resistant red grease, or WD40. Thinking the read grease will last the longest. If not, i'll just rubber coat the bolts and peal it off whenever i need to remove them (slim odds of needing to do that!)
