Use a wooden roller when applying.  Helps to use a heat gun when rolling too..  As long as moisture isn't there when applied moisture will not get between it & the metal.  If you are that concerned about moisture then use an etching primer before applying.  I just wiped the surfaces down with xylene & let dry then applied..  I also let mine sit in the sun for several hrs to make sure the tar stuck to the metal.

Sure does..  Its just like Dynamat; tar backed aluminum foil.  It reduces heat & road noise.  You can tell a difference when you shut the doors.  There is no echo or rattle.  Just solid.

Prices are reasonable and the quality is very good.

You are gonna think Im crazy but I used this and it is holding up great..  Plus I did the entire car for right at $100..  Roughly 5 rolls with do the floor, roof, doors, sail panel area & quarter areas..

Also he needs to run a vacuum advance if he is going to drive it on the street.  It is dumb to run without one.  I have read several posts on ported vs manifold vacuum as well.  I can make either one work.  But the best for driveability would be manifold.

Cook ,you are right on and made me delete my post !  Grin

Lol yeah this was just fresh on my mind since I was just dealing with the same thing on a car I was tuning last weekend.   Wink

He is running too much timing.  Inital can be whatever but the total (I would think) would be in the 35-38 range.  If he sets his total timing to say 35 degrees and then checks the timing at idle that will give you what the mechanical advance is in the distributor.  If he is running 45 at total and is inital is 25 then that means his mechanical advance is 20 degrees.  Seems to me like it needs more mechanical advance and the timing retarded.  But it is hard to say for sure what is truly needed cause you would need to factor in cam and where it was degreed in as well as engine size and specs.  

Just curious but has he made sure he is not 180 degrees out on the distributor?  Do the headers or manifolds glow red?

I havent heard from the author yet but I did find him on a T-bird website.  Here is what he is talking about on the process of sodium Dichromate..

Anytime.   Grin

I emailed the author about the sodium dichromate solution process.  If he replies I will post up that process.

It coyld be tonawanda or one of the car plants & their staging area for the engines.  Corvette plant still uses a very similar system for the assembly line.  Also looks like diffs in the far right of pic.??..  Kinda hard to tell.

Anyone else think the vin on the pad seems a little off or is it just me?

I'm not sure if anyone has exact #s..  But a guess would be less than 1/3rd..

I dont recall the order form looking like that.  Also if you look it states "To be delivered on or about: ASAP    1968"               Someone else will have to comment on that.  Only reason I say that the vin on the paper work could have been from a loaner car was due to the fact that the dealer would not know the vin until the car was delivered.?. Someone correct me if I am wrong on that comment..
