Default Fear & Loathing DP90



I had a small gas stain on the cowl of my a-coupe (DP90 primer). Everything I tried to smother the stain with only seemed to make the problem worse. By the time I gave up and went inside to se...

That link got me all straightened out on how to get my Buick looking more like a Black Beauty and less like a Burnt Turd. Thanks Ryan and everyone in that linked post.

And I spent 32 hours one time detailing out a '31 Plymouth? I should have used house hold Items like you!!!!!!!!! Ya never know what will work until you try it. By the way, the 32 hours was that being the car was never rubbed out before and needed a 5 stage on it. All by hand mind you! KNUX!

To keep the primer looking all the same, try some strong household ammonia and a towel. It seems to blend the color all the same.

I have a similar gas stain on some DP74 (red oxide) I might try this in a small area and see if I get the same results.

Thanks.

I wrote this really late last night in between taking care of my sick little girl... Let me clarify... I used three products:

1. Scotch-Brite Easy Erase Pads (got them at the grocery store)
2. Scotch-Brite Super Fine Scouring Pads (auto paint supply store)
3. Griot's Speed Shine (over priced windex)

i spose you are topping off the tank right to the tippy top all the time(someone who ran out before?)...
ol biker types always have rag -towlels in hand while fueling..so drips and overfills are caught asap.. angle of nozzle is a good thing too. as the auto shut off feature does not splash fuel out..
i ruined the whole side of my car by filling to the top and then parking in the sun as the fuel expanded it overflowed eating all the paint cap to the rockers ..
glad you able to remove the stain and you did not need to fasten a batch of alliance tags to cover the area instead... hahah

My coupe is in DP 90, I just fussed over bird crap, that being said I find it funny as hell that we, the anti -paint people, are so worried about how our primer looks.

It's comforting to see another Model A guy who's still using the stock cowl tank.

My '28 Woodie has a lot of stains on the 8 year old catalyzed DuPont Centari enamel. I'll give your method a try...but I should probably plan for a repaint. Lord knows that the hood deserves a redo...

I accidently got Simple Green on the DP 90 on my coupe,which caused a big time stain that I never got out. I've had my coupe in some type of primer for 23 years. Primers last three to four years before they go south. No big deal, just scuff them up,mask them off, and reprime.

i painted my 35 in 2000.... i was pretty bummed the first time it got rained on because it water spotted real bad... so i tried the lemon pledge.... i think it works great... kinda gives a semi gloss shine and almost acts as a wax, now water beads up on it... and the pleadge will clean off with prep sol... we had to re shoot a door on one of the roadsters, no worries.

You can get BIG cheap "white Scotch Brite" pads from a restaurant supply store.

They are used in hotels to scrub fine china without scratching the painted patern.
