Hey everyone,

So as my project chugs along slowly Iím getting close to stripping the shell.  Thereís a place that dips near me that Iím considering. 

After dipping the do coat it in a rust preventative, but it needs to be sealed rather quickly to prevent flash rust.

Iím debating attempting to seal it myself before I move onto the metal work. 

Thinking of using Eastwoodís epoxy primer and their internal frame coating. 

Figured Iíd grab a few rattle cans also with the flexible attachment to get into those places a sprayer canít. 

Couple questions.

 Is this something thatís feasible for a competent diyer?

 Does my plan sound reasonable?

 Does the surface need any prepping prior to applying epoxy? Or can I apply it right over.

 I donít own a big air compressor, but I have a airless sprayer I used to paint a ceiling before.  Is it possible to use this?

 i don't think doing it your self is a good idea, i know most shops around here will power wash the car . put it in the paint booth on a bake cycle to dry up the water, then go over any areas that still have rust or scale,then epoxy on another bake cycle. all in one day,  plus in the summer its even more time sensitive due to the humidity.and your neighbours are going to love you.
