Re: Paint questions

Terry....to add, also clean your surface well. You can get what your saying from grease. Also, gun closer and slower speed will clear up dry spots. This is my first paint job ever and have learned a...

Re: Roadster P/U body to frame

Roadster P/U body to frame

Looks like the cab takes 10 bolts to mount. That leaves me with only two bolts left for bed from the body mount kit. Anyone know how many bolts and where they go on the bed? Thanks!

Re: Stuck starter motor

Spray it good with brake cleaner. No oil should be on it. Make sure you press firm when starting. Partial start will lock it up.

Re: Stalling when braking

I have experienced your GAV issue. The top you turn is threaded. Mine was just unscrewing so I was turning and turning and nothing was happening. Yes, Loctite to the rescue.
