Painter's Supply. They are a good 3M and Meguiar's dealer, too.

I've not been thrilled with Painter's Supply paints.

I have, on the other hand, been extremely pleased with Allen Paint, 141 S. Broadway. Very knowledgeable. I painted my wife's motorcycle with some of their Acme polyurethane about 20 years ago, and it still has a hard-as-nails glass smooth finish in Porsche Guard's Red. Great stuff. They give excellent advice and will explain everything to you.

Painters Supply, not so much.

Speaking of fiberglass, the single best source for materials is Plasticare, south a bit further from Painter's Supply. They are on Natches Ct., just south of Oxford and west of Santa Fe. Literally everything plastic, fiberglass, resin and epoxy there is to find.

Default After Rubithon Carnage

So yesterady I tear down my front axle and pull the diff to replace the bolt broken last year that the Rubithon made leak. Those diffs are heavy. I am just a weakling since I saw Ben easily just hoist it up and line it up. Dropped the damn diff while trying to line it up and smashed my finger. All purple on the backside and half the nail is black.

Was suppose to play in a Golf Tournament tomorrow, can't swing a club now

Ouch! Yeah Dave I used Plasticare for all my fiberglass needs, just the paint went to Painters Supply. And yeah Bill now that you mention it I didn't get completely good vibes from those guys, maybe I'll try this other place next time.

Well, rock rash on the Ricecakes flares is almost a memory! Need to block sand and shoot the clear coat tomorrow but all but the front section of the passenger side rear are done. That flare took more damage than I first thought but it too will mostly disappear. Just need to easy out all the sheared zerks on the driveshafts and install the sway bays with new links and I'll be mall ready again! I also have a sheared bolt on the cross member/skid plate and one on the left wing of the rear bumper but those should be fairly easy to get out as I always use anti-seize on chassis bolts.

Sorry to hear it, Ken! It's not just 40s that are knuckle busters!
