The Delfleet Essential can also be flatted with the DX-10-FLT flattener.  A good start is 6:1:!:3 paint:hardener:activator:flattener

Just throwing this out there, what about a drop of Locktite, ?
Blue yes.  Red no.

Lynn, that's the set up I currently have , a repo battery, but it only had a 400 cca battery inside (surprised it had enough power to crank it over when it was cold out) but I'm on the fence as I'd like to have a battery with 700 to 800 cca's. Does the Braille battery have enough power. I read the specs and they advertised 550 cca

This Braille battery seems to have enough oats:

and still fit in the repro battery case.

a bit pricey though

Doesn't the 2 in the 328 look like a re-strike?

Yes, it is.  Well, it is at where I work.  We use it for prototypes for customer parts.  Very handy, but you have to create a CAD file first.  It is a CNC xacto knife.  The table has a large vacuum pump that holds the sheet in place.

I've done a few of the dividers for 1970 Camaros and ran into the same material supply issue.  The 70 divider is about 0.093 inch thick so I laminate a 0.060 and 0.031 sheet together.  I found the material here:

cutting it:

I am convinced that when a phrase can be manipulated or otherwise bastardized to profit the seller, it will.  "Numbers Matching" at one time was somewhat of a gold standard to mean it left the factory with it.  It seems that now it means the numbers match the numbers, nothing more.  I'm not sure how "born with" can mean anything other than what it says, but I bet that will (if it hasn't already) be twisted to mean that that part has the metal it was born with or something more ludicrous.  I'm waiting for it to get to a court of law to see the outcome.

I used Evaporust.  Seemed to work well.  Neutralized with flooding with first water and a scrub brush (after pulling the drains) then with lacquer thinner and finally with wax and grease remover before epoxy.  Used high build primer and blocked it.  Sealed with epoxy.  Seems to be holding up well.  Car was on a rotisserie so easy to level it out.

Restoration / Re: Rust on exhaust manifolds

I am planning on a running a trial using CERACOAT on exhaust manifolds, I have thoroughly cleaned an exhaust manifold and will be blasting with garnet at 100# per ceracoat instructions.
Planning on mixing something close to a natural castiron look and also doing chevy orange for the flanges and bolts on Big block manifolds.
Looking for something to keep the appearance of a low mile survivor for a decade or more without maintenance.
I used Cerakote C Series on a set, but have yet to start the engine.  You might try a 75-25 mix of Glacier Black and Glacier Silver.  I went 50-50 and its a bit too silver but I'm going to stick with it. It sprays very nice.  Did the front coil springs and going to do the leafs also.

Not to mention angle of the camera and lighting.  Look at the sides of the raised beads.  A bit darker to me.

Inland Fisher Guide (various names through the years) here in Dayton made many interior and exterior parts over the years.  It was a GM owned subsidiary but few folks seem to have heard of it.

Here is a good, albeit lengthy, article about it:

back when Dayton and the nearby areas made many, many things automotive and otherwise.

Go to page 10 if you want to see what they made.

Knew many people that worked there.

Reminds me when I was looking for a used 40 foot class A RV.  Had a seller tell me that the coach was all packaged up in Omaha NB and ready to ship and if I didn't like it I could ship it back within 30 days.  I told her I had a relative in the Air Force stationed at Omaha and he could go look at it.  She said it was all boxed up and he couldn't see it.  She seemed to have no clue what an RV even was.
