I was thinking rattle can at least for the small stuff, but I also need to paint the seat frames...open to advice! I'm new at painting, I don't have my own gun yet and my current compressor is only 5.8 Cfm at 90 or I think 7.8 at 40. I've seen some sprayers at Eastwood made for that cfm level...but no idea if they are any good. Again...open to advice.

Powder coat the seat frames.

Here is a decent low cost paint gun that you could use. It's great for beginners and works well with smaller compressors.

I used Satin Black Rust -oleum with Rust-oleum Automotive Primer for most of my brackets and out of way things that don't get wear or handled. It was already a huge project that I just wanted to keep it moving along. I would do that bit again. Of course if Steve and Doghouse Powder was closer I totally would have went that route. Steve powder coated my five wheels White and they are better than awesome!

For the dash, doors, steering column I bought special interior paint in cans from NPD (National Parts Depot) . It looks good but I would use a real spray set up with hardener next time. The rattle can finish chips easily and I have to be extremely careful when using chemicals to clean off things like window sealer or trim adhesive.

I used SEM universal color coat for the kick panels, door handles and other plastic bits. That is tough stuff. I used the Dupli - color "Adhesion Promoter " prior to the SEM color and am very pleased. Looks good and is holding up well. I also bought the SEM from NPD as the price was best I could find.

Thanks everyone for all the advice so far.
Patrick, I can see why you powdercoated the seat frames. I was thinking about that...do you mind if I ask about how much that would cost?
Or...Steve...if you see this post, please chime in.
They would need to be blasted too.

I'll let Steve reply to the powder coating question.

I used to use Krylon due to the fast-dry and use reason, but found it to be fast dry but not very durable at all. I found the Rustoleum 7777 (rattle-can or quarts I see no difference in quality) to be very durable. It is what I sprayed the exterior of the Ranchero and under the hood. Takes about 8-hours to dry, but that appears to be worth it.

Powder is the way to go. Give me an idea of what you want to coat. Is it a bench seat? Bottom and backs? Stripped of all upholstry?
If you get them to me naked and all I got to do is blast em and coat em you are looking at $100. I usually get 2-250 for that just cause they suck to blast.
I've always said that any paid club member gets a huge discount from me. Except Roger he get free (seen my dash gauges) for life.
Anyway if you can get it to me you won't be disappointed.
Hope that helps. Steve.

The seats are full one piece across bench seats (one piece seat bottom and another piece back rest) for the front and back. I could bring them with all the Upholstry off (just painted metal and a little rust). I just want to make sure the upholstry guy doesn't need the old upholstry for any reason (but it's all trash).

Sounds like I need a trip over...

Where can I check out the gages Roger did for you?

Go to the reconstruction has begun thread. That has the whole build on my car. Gauges are on the last most current page.
Front and back seat would be closer to $200 for all of it maybe less once I see them.

Any advice on what to prep and paint the outside of the gas tank with?
I've seen the Eastwood paint for it. Anyone tried it?
Steve- yours really looks nice- I'd like to know what you used to paint yours.

I painted my tank with Eastwoods Rust encapsulator then sprayed two coats of this stuff on it:

Seems rugged but don't spill too much gas on it.

Bottom paint decisions

Any thoughts on what bottom paint to use? I have one rusted through spot to fix, but other than that it looks pretty good. It doesn't seem worth taking all the old paint off. I was thinking of cleaning& power wire brushing and then just painting over that with primer and a top coat and/or all or maybe a combo of that and por-15 undercoat for the heavy splash areas. I have a can of por-15 and a can of chassis coat black...but the info says por-15 is only for bare metal or rust, and the chassis coat info implies it is only to paint over the por-15. ( the por-15 undercoat says its ok to spray over paint if it's scuffed up first with wire brush/ sanded, etc.) Any thoughts most appreciated!
