You guys are gonna roll your eyes. This is all squarely on my shoulders as a Newb/careless mistake.

It was a can of Rustoleum "Automotive Primer" that I had on my shelf. I finished the can and threw it away. Trash has come and taken it away so I can't evaluate it. It was not old, maybe 6 months on my shelf.

The base was a custom match/mix from Finishmaster that they put into a spray can for me. Again trash has gone and the can with the mix label was in it so I can't evaluate it. I didn't read the label close enough, either; just trusted the counter guy. Clear coat is a Smart brand high gloss can, also from Finishmaster, via their recommendation based on what they mixed for me for the base coat.

I am fairly certain I used the wrong primer. When I get back, I will spend more time and effort making sure all paint components are correct.

I thought auto primer spray cans are lacquer for quick dry and easy sanding which I'd have thought would be ok under presumably urethane base/clear.

I've been using Epoxy but I'm repainting the whole thing.

I feel for you.

These are my last pictures for a few weeks. Heading to Hawaii for work for 4 weeks, then home for 9 days, then back to Hawaii for 2 more weeks. Sounds awesome but Hawaii sucks when you are there for work and have no family with you; its just another city that is a 4 hour flight from home but with crappy wrecking yards.

Here's how my intake runners turned out. Like I said, this represents ALOT of grinding.



And here's how my engine sits as I leave. The dizzy is just an old one I had that I stuck in there to plug the hole. It's pretty much sealed up now and I have it covered in towels so it should be fine sitting there for a few weeks. I am going to do stainless hardware on my valve cover. I am SUUUUPeeeer stoked on the black on blue with stainless accents. I am fairly certain my dizzy will be painted gloss black when it goes back in...

Woooooo Hooo I can finally reply.where do I start? Well your project looks fantastic! Bummer about the paint they say when using mix match paints your supposed to do a test piece, I on the other hand don’t either. I shot a fill primer on a rear quarter that had been on the shelf for way too long and did not set up. What a mess. It happens. Any way great work.

Before I left I had a good buddy come over that has painted quite a few cars. We talked about each step I did and the results I got. His opinion: it's engine degreaser. He thinks that after I cleaned my firewall with engine degreaser, before wire wheeling/painting that I did not get all the degreaser off/neutralized. Then, when the solvents from the base and clear were applied, they reacted with the degreaser and caused the bubbles. Makes perfect sense to me and is probably the best explanation I can expect. Still a bonehead move on my part though.

CHRIS!! I am going to hijack my own thread for a second to welcome you hear and introduce you.
a) I absolutely love your handle! Anyone reading this, know iapexl8r has an absolutely gorgeous AMX he races!
b) iapexl8r is the guy that bought Wesdog's Cherokee. When he bought it, we knew the roof was rusty. I didn't realize how rusty it really was until I saw this video. This roof is from a rig Heavy_metal_Thunder_81 parted out.

Idunno. What'd you use for degreasing?
