why you never use POR-15 EVER!!!!

First post on SPI Forums. Trying to learn everything I can.

So, I thought I was all cool with using POR-15 in my cowl area of my 69 Mustang resto. With all the comments in this forum, now I'm wondering if I should try to remove it and start over with SPI before welding things back up again. Any suggestions on how to remove it without grinding away what is left of the metal? Thanks!!

Get it off now before you button the car back up!

If the metal is that thin, you might want to rethink what you are doing. If you post some pictures, someone might be able to give you some guidance.e

Just a comment?
This thread is a very good example why you should ALWAYS post your pictures directly to the forum. We have this great thread that is now old but as you can see all the dirt bag photo hosting sites have completely destroyed the pictures!
The only ones left are the ones that were directly uploaded to this forum. Those will stay good until this forum eventually dies.

DO NOT use ANY photo hosting sites ever!!!
This forum and all the others on the internet are wrecked from these incompetent ass hats!
Stop using photo hosting sites forever!

Also it's been designated a sticky so it always stays near the top because of the very important information in it. I'm glad it's near the top so I can find it easily when I need to share the valuable info contained within it.
I'm the one who noticed the pics were gone the first time around when I was going to show them to a friend. Thanks to Datec and Dub for getting them reposted.

Since I completely resurrected this truck and used nothing but 100% SPI Epoxy, Base and Universal Clear. I have never washed it once and never waxed it, like in my other thread I started showing the project I said I would push Barry's products to the extreme to show just how good his products are. I also stated I would take pictures of it before I did wash it to show what total neglect looks like. I have been asked numerous times about waxing a car to protect the new paint from sun damage. I always say that's crap there is nothing to worry about and this will prove it when I post the pics. I can tell you there is only one issue with it and it has nothing to do with the material used, the drivers fender rusted out at the wheel arch and is going to get replaced, short of that nothing worth getting to worried about. When it gets back from getting inspected and a slight mechanical issue fixed I will get some pics uploaded in my other thread to show what it looks like today.

Time to invest in media blasting, either DIY or professionally.
