Classified Forums - Read this first!

Here are a few simple guidelines for this forum. Failure to follow any of these rules will be grounds for your thread to be closed.

Post your information
Post as much info as you can. Say where you are located, where the part is located, the best way to get in contact with you, if you are willing to ship, etc.

Post the item's information
Post as much info as you can. A price must be posted, as well as pictures of the item(s). Post as many pictures as you can, even if it is a common item. A picture tells a thousand words, but it can also conceal another thousand. Links to hosted galleries of images are acceptable, links to eBay and/or Craigslist are not. Once the item sells, please do not edit your ad to remove the price. Many people search through old ads to get an idea what their item may be worth.

-The year and model
-An accurate mileage. If the odometer is broken, post what it reads currently and how many miles you believe it has
-Any aftermarket modifications
-Any known issues or damaged areas
-A price

If listing wheels and/or tires, post:
-The brand and model
-As many specs as you can, including but not limited to tire size, tread remaining, wheel diameter, width, offset, bolt pattern and centerbore, if multi-piece the lip, barrel and center size. If they have been redrilled post the original bolt pattern and where it was done.

-Post what you won't accept. This includes imperfections, colors, models, etc.
-Post a price range of what you are willing to pay (typically based on condition).
-Post where you are located and if you would prefer local pickup.

In case the point was not made, everything being sold on this forum must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist (or any other buy/sell/trade site). Do not post links to those for your ad. The same goes for linking to ads on other forums... either post your information here or have your thread closed.
-Feeler threads are not allowed. If you're not sure about selling it, don't post it.
-Cross-posting within the R3VLimited forum is not allowed. Choose a single subforum for your ad.
-If listing your item for trade, post what you are looking for, what you feel your item is worth, if you would like cash back or if you have cash to put on top.
-Thread crapping is not allowed. If you're not interested in purchasing the item for sale or have nothing positive to add, stay out of the thread or be prepared for a time out. If you complain about the time out, it will be extended.
-Threads can be bumped a maximum of once per day (24h). You are allowed to respond to others more than once a day.
-If listing multiple items, post them in one thread. Exceptions are cars and wheels.

    Eastwood 2k Aerosol sprays

    I tried this to paint my re-worked trailing arms and subframe. Powdercoating was fancier than what I wanted, but I didn't want Krylon, either.

    The Eastwood 2k sprays are about $20 and are true catalyzed paints, more like epoxy than paint. It sprays nice and is tough as nails. It looks identical to the factory finish.

    You do need a respirator to spray it. Highly recommend!

    Interesting option for when I have my subframe out in the spring. In August I did a ton of rust repair to the floors and front end of my e30 using Eastwood's products, namely the rust encapsulator, internal frame coating, and rubberized undercoat. Seems like good stuff. Used the 2k primer to paint my valence as well, then sprayed over it with color matched cans from a local shop.

    Eastwood's is expensive as heck but for most applications it seems worth it.

      I've used their clear before, and once you wet sand and polish, it's about as durable as professional job. But like anything paint related - prep is the key.

        I’ve seen professionals use this for touch up or blending so its a good product.

        I just wish there was a way to get 2k for small touch up. I find small blemishes (ie small rust bubble etc), especially when I take parts off. Would be nice to use epoxy but it’s hard to justify $20/can when all you need is 1/10th of the volume.
