    I’ll bet you’ll fix up that spot and the rest stays on there just fine.

        Did a little re-work on the exhaust manifold today. Was originally done with VHT silver in rattle can. It was showing way too much rust for my liking. Got a little can of POR15 hi temp at Carlisle last year. As far as I know I don’t have any leaks, so chose not to mess with it. Just did the best I could in place. Did a little wire brushing and scotch bright prep. blew off the dust and brushed it on. Used a small piece of sponge to get some up underneath...

          Yep, and as said -I was not changing at that point... But to your question, it was ‘stable’. Maybe too stable. It just seems like there was no bonding or any interaction at all where it peeled. I think the spray can version is actually better than quarts due to different solvent base. Never had a problem with same topcoat over Rustoleum primer spray bombs in engine bay.

          You need this manifold and carb.

            Rustoleum really never hardens, that is why if you paint something and set it in the sun, it turns to a dull white chauk, in a few months. Its oil based, with no hardners.
            I bet you can still push your fingernail in the primer where it peeled.
            You did an excellent job on that car, on a budget, I am not giving you a hard time at all, your car looks great, and the best thing is since you built it, you can fix it.
            Roll up your sleeves and get it done.

              I know what you are saying about it not hardening and eventually getting chalky. Have used lots of oil based Rustoleum for years. This was different... I think it said it was acetone solvent. Dried VERY fast and hard. Made it very easy to sand, but...
              I will do touch-ups as long as I can to keep it looking good and then figure out what to do with it. If at some point I can afford a good paint job, ...it will go on the next one I build. LOL

                Interesting slant fact.Those different length intake runners actually were designed to spread the torque curve out across the rpm range.

                    Got really nice outside for a bit. So, I decided to work on the Duster... I got a couple cans of Eastwood internal frame coating a couple weeks ago. Been meaning to do that for awhile now. Ran her up on ramps and crawled under. Rust never sleeps. I guess considering what I started with it ain't that bad, but had a few rust blisters and pinholes on frame. Maybe someday I will replace sections. Especially where the front frame meets the cross frame is really beat up from jacking. Had heavy rust in it when I started, I cleaned it up and reinforced it some inside when I did the floor pan. I think it's strong enough, but it's ugly. At least this stuff should keep it from getting any worse. Was starting to rain so back rails will happen another day.
                    I like the way the stuff turned out on exhaust manifold. After a couple times being run and cycling hot and cold

                    Bumper is finally here and on! Just in time for Cinnamon to show off her new bling at Carlisle. Thanks to delivery by @Mopar Tim. Bumper from @Steve Agrella and guards I got previously from @meathead66.

                      Oh yeh... I also evicted a few more wasps and got some Eastwood internal coating into the back frame rails this morning. :thumbsup:

                        Carlisle yesterday... Made for a much better showing after adding 2 beautiful bumpers since last year. Lots of compliments in the little bit of time I spent near the car!

                            Nah, I was slacking on pics this year. Just too much to cover there. I was trying to sell parts and buy a few odds n ends. So spent most of my time in vendor area. Just glad I remembered to get a few shots of Cinnamon this year. Completely slipped my mind last year.

                              Haven’t had Cinnamon out much lately and she was feeling sad when some rain leaked in this past week...
