Hi Tony, I have changed brands of epoxy, the House of kolor stuff is really hard to get so I am trying Rest O Finish, similiar colour I think.

I haven't tried reso finish.  I usually use PPG for primer.  Pricing looks ok.  Let us know how it goes on.

Sprayed some Epoxy today, it went on much thicker than House of Kolor even tho I put some reducer in it (only about 2%)
Supposed to be Grey/Green but looks much more grey, the photo makes it look completely grey.



I think the big test will be how well it holds up around rosett welds

Lot of welding ahead.  What engine are you putting in it?  Did you notch the towers for better access??

I have a 67 so not sure if they are the same.  But does this help.  You can zoom in close enough to see most of it.

Thanks Tony, couldn't really see much from those for sale cars, I would expect 67 cars to be the same.
