Re: Garage Floor Suggestions

I did my shop and my garage, and three or four other peoples with this: https://www.epoxy-coat.com If you want durable, I'd go with a 100% solids epoxy. The big-box store Quickcrete/Rustoleum kits are typically only around 50% solids. If I had it to do over(which I might, someday), I'd not use the c...

Re: Garage Floor Suggestions

What would have probably made my floor accept the epoxy better would have been to scarify the concrete. Scarifying will expose fresh concrete surface and rough it up for a better mechanical grip by the epoxy. Scarifiers can be rented at a local hardware or equipment rental store. With scarifying fi...

Re: AFHQT......

I'm running full length headers for a 69 with a 351W in my 68. Overall the fit was OK. Close enough for me. I did have to tweak the collectors for clearance around the C6 transmission. But more than one person has told me that it is a somewhat common problem. I also am not running the power steerin...

Re: AFHQT......

So, my search terms either suck, or it hasn't been asked here: Question in two parts: 1)Are the 68/69's the "same" in the engine bay? i.e., size, location of components, etc? Close but not exactly the same. Most major components are in the same place. and if so, 2)Does that mean headers for a 69 35...

Re: AFHQT......

All right...you got my curiosity meter pegged. I googled "AFHQT" and came up empty. What does it mean? :lol: I made it up! “Another Fooking Header Question Thread”.....!!!

Re: Garage Floor Suggestions

I've not had any issues with brake fluid spilling on my epoxy......and I've spilled a TON on it. I HAVE had staining issues, though, with PVC pipe primer.......yeah, the purple stuff. I'd do epoxy again in a heartbeat.....but, I think I'd forego the chips next time. Makes finding dropped hardware a ...
