I finally got around to my own really rusty car. I hate rust! I have
been putting parts aside for a couple of years. I now have a 1300 with
dual carbs, big exhaust and about double the horse power of original
engine. The more I sand blast the less car I have! I stripped my
California car what a night and day difference. It takes 10 times the
energy to strip a rusty car as it does a rust free one. Lord willing
next year we are off to Stillwater Minnesota. They started thier own
club with 17 cars so far! I have talked with most of them over the years
and really looking forward to meeting all of them. Later Dave the Wave

The critical humidity level is 45% to 50% relative humidity. Below this
level, steel will not rust (assuming you don't have another issue like battery
acid on it).

I JUST GOT THE BIGGEST SURPRISE OF ALL.
If you have the 2004 Celina photo. I am working on Ron's car
It is the one with the fake mermaid on the hood. the red car!!
It looked really good.but was taking on water so he wanted it redone.
well when I got into it I found very sloppy 1970 style body work in the rear
so I got query
and to the car to Toronto and had it Acid dipped..
I got the car back yesterday and after the bondo was removed the is not a
panel in it that is not rusted threw. I took 30 picks of it last night and
can sent if you are interested off line.

Rust on an Amphicar? Never heard of such a thing.
;-)

More important than the paint is to get the area
really clean before you apply anything. The typical
bilge area will usually require lots of degreaser and
elbow grease.

Once cleaned up a good quality spray paint will work
just fine. Some folks like to use things like POR-15.
POR-15 is certainly durable but if the area is not
completely free of oily residue it will lift and may
actually trap water underneath.

I would use a good spray paint and then maybe a
protectant that is durable yet easy to remove. Waxoil
comes to mind as does Eastwood's Heavy Duty Anti-Rust

Hi all:: when i did the motor area in my car i used por-15 for the whole
thing, but when you go to paint it you have to scroff it up so the paint
will stick.

Hello,

When I was restoring my cars (3 years ago), one of the best tips that
I received was from Billy Syx, regarding interior coatings. He, and
I, use an industrial coating that I have found under two brands. It
is a high solids, two part, epoxy mastic coating that is designed for
continuous immersion under gas and oil. It works as a primer coat, a
mid coat or a top coat and is not sensitive to UV radiation. It is
rather thick but runs very well, so it fills those nasty pin holes.
It can be custom colored to any color you want but it just so happens
that two of the stock colors are perfect for the red and white cars
interiors. The minimum size it comes in is what they call 1 gallon,
but it is actually two gallons since it is a 50/50 mix with the
activator. This two gallon quantity is just about exactly what you
want for a complete Amphicar interior. (I do the front trunk floor
up to the cross brace under the spare tire and use a highly flattened
marine paint for the visible portions of the trunk area since regular
paints lay down flatter.)

These paints are actually under the heading of industrial coatings
and the two brands are:

Dupont Corlar 25P

Neo Mastic 811 (from Wasser High Tech Coatings)

Dupont has a color called "Clay Tan" which is perfect for white car
interiors and Neo has a color they call "Christmas Red" which is
right for the red cars. It's possible both companies use the same
color names but those are what I found with when I did my cars.

If you want to thin the paints, Dupont has RT 001P thinner. Normally
I use it without thinning.

These paints are probably not available from your local paint store
since they call themselves "industrial coatings" but I was able to
order it in from a paint shop that supplies paints to the local body
shops. It's worth the hassle to get it. It works that well.

P.S. The Clay Tan color is what you see in the background of the 1296
engine photos in the photos section.

If you are real carefull. cable lines like E brakes can be put into a
container of Muratic acid for a few days to a week.all rust will be
removed. it will not atack the ruber or plastic.
after this is done they must be washed off in water and totally blown dry ,
then greese the $%^^% out of them.
I do this to many cables and my 53 hudson back 10 years ago.. it is still
working fine!

Another trick is bleach...get the strong industial type and put yellowed
prop in it over night,,, wow there white again! you must remove all greese
first thou.
