    what is everyone's go-to product for redoing the black texture paint?

    Comment


      duplicolor trim black paint has worked for me good. the SEM isnt worth the extra cost IMO. been wanting to try John Deere blitz Black!

      also SUPER excited for the karting this weekend!!!!

        Are you talking about the rockers? I re-did mine with 3M Rubberized Undercoat. I couldn't be happier with how they turned out. For prep, I just cleaned them with acetone.

          On what just trim? or the lower portion of the cars rockers?

          On the trim I used SEM trim black last time and it worked perfect. On the rockers I did the same but i roughed up with some brillo pads and used etch primer first. Also taped a sharper line then the factory makes.

            On the rockers? I have used SEM trim paint and Plastidip. Both with good results

                To be honest, just use duplicolor trim black. Half the cost and it's nearly the same quality, I've never had a problem with it.

                    Easy way to tell the difference between B27 and B25 Throttle Bodies visually? I think I remember the Eta ones being a bit smaller diameter wise. If that's the case, I think I have one for you toes.

                      Dont think its a size difference I think its a design difference, iirc there are more vacuum hoses going into b27?
