Polyester isn't the problem. Lotsa direct to metal primers are polyester.

It's when it has a filler that makes it porous like Bondo that it can allow rust. I dunno if "kitty hair" that uses glass...

If you read it on Wiki it must be true?

That definition was probably developed to exclude the XJ's. Couldn't just go by year since they coexisted with the Wags.

Do the FC's fit those criteria? How...

$3-$4.5k In Boise? That would seem high in So. Cal. Did you shop around or are they the only show in town.

Wow, you have more balls than I buying something with that much rust.

Good news is I think you have a D20 not the Quadra-Trac. At least it would be good news to me.

I like the motor plans.

Astronomic Event

Don't forget to check out the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn tonight. Might already be too late in the Eastern U.S.?

Will still be pretty close tomorrow but today is the closest.

Seems to me Kaiserjeeps makes them but you would need the hoops and, of course, the holes in the correct places in the vehicle. Idunno if they kept putting them in once they went to the foam.
