I received my first two big boxes today..the FMS M2300K brake kit and the 3.73 rear end. Since my FFR isn't due for 2 more weeks, I was just wondering if I could get started with some subassembly work and painting. I want to do everything under the body in black or silver POR15. Other than the rotors, is there anything I should NOT paint right now? Also, does the black POR15 require the UV protectant, or just the silver?

I did the install last weekend. Put the wheels and tires on and it's a snap to place and then use the floor jack. Be careful with the POR15, as it has di-isocyanates (?) that are REALLY harmful. Do it outdoors and still use a vapor mask and DO NOT SPRAY IT. If you spray, you need a full pressure mask.

My impression on POR is that if it is exposed to sunlight then it needs to be coated.


So far, my por 15 black looks fine. Im not a perfectionist.

HOWEVER, the por15 silver TURNS GREEN. It does not need sunlight to do this. and it only takes a few weeks.

If you like that antique copper look, go for the por15 silver. :D :D

The black will actually look good if you brush it on. It will be smooth. THere is a possiblity of dust. This stuff seems to be a dust magnet.

And it looks good on your hands for the next 5 days. If you dont wear gloves, you will look like the infamous ********.
