Epoxy
#1
My chassis is in great shape but there are a couple of areas that I want to tackle/touch up.

[Image: Epoxymatchingcopy.jpg]

Has anyone found a great aftermarket match?

Does Epoxy have to been used or would a suitable Hammerite type product do a good job if layered with multiple coats?

I see no point in colour matching the original Epoxy colour code (i.e. the bits that have not been exposed to sunlight etc) as the mismatch would be obvious. The clever solution is one that is based on the lighter grey finish that has developed over the years.

Any ideas anyone?

'POR 15' grey seems to be a good match, it also is supposed to be a very good product paint/rust preventer. it's very this though so you need a few coats. And dont get it on your skin. Neither do I know what a JK74 is Cry

I have 3 x 1 litre buckets of 'marine grade' grey epoxy paint up for grabs if anyone needs some, i had to buy 5 litres of the stuff just to touch up the bits on my frame.

I will also supply with it 100ml of black epoxy pigment to darken the shade to match your particular frame ( as each frame shade is different )

If anyone would like some please contact me i will supply this at my cost c £10 a litre + postage.

Hi Mike,

can you reserve me one too?

I've got some nasty rust to attend to on Flopsy's frame thanks to the brake master cylinder leaking all over the frame before I bought the car.

Cheers,

Claire
