Seriously, seeing that completely torn down is giving me bad flashbacks. Keep on it, you'll have that done by May no problem.


Thanks Moe, I knew you would have some flashbacks about this.

I don't think acetone will be a problem, other than it might have an effect on those couple of spots where there's still a bit of green primer. I use denatured alcohol (DNA) for this sort of thing, as it's not quite as toxic.


Thank you Rick for the reply.
I did use the plastic media John recommended, and it worked very well. Thanks again John, And all....

I have denatured alcohol and acetone, I'll give both a go, thanks.

Sand blasting went pretty good yesterday morning. I didn't run into any problems..

My next step is wipe everything down with acetone and prep for primer.

Does anybody see a problem with using acetone? And is there anything else I should do for prep work before priming?

Marc,

I just started round two of my restoration, now working on the Cosmetics of the outboard. Here's a few pics that I took this morning tearing apart my Merc.

I am going to do some preventative maintenance to the power head after I paint the outboard.



Everything is all striped off and ready to be degreesed before going into the blast cabinet.

I just re-did all the seals in the lower unit 3 months ago. So I am going to try to do this with the gear housing still intaked.

I used the ReproTint rattle cans for my 25 Johnson cover, two toned, turned out pretty good for my first attempt... See my avatar..
