    Of course!

    It was an OEM option for the Civic so it should look OEM anyway

    i didn't read the whole thing, but did you go with the POR15? eastwood makes a few products that kick that stuff's butt. just some info, in case you haven't checked it out yet. it seals MUCH better and protects better x 1,000,000.

    I did use some POR15 but the project isn't finished yet.

    What's the Eastwood product you're talking about?

    go to Eastwood.com

    their stuff is amazing. they have one product that you spray on rust to neutralize it, then another to seal it off. you can roll on, brush on, or they have foams for inside of frames, etc. awesome stuff. check it out.

    I saw that a few months ago. It looked pretty good from what they were showing in the video, however that was just an ad, so I guess that is kinda expected. Have you tried the stuff, and if you did, did it work like they say it does?

    Re: Carotman's 1987 hatchback project

    I started to work on the car again.

    I gave myself a kick in the butt and decided that I have to work on the car every day. Even if I just remove 1 bolt or grind a square inch of rust, it counts. I'll be able to finish this project by working on this project in little increments. I've been delaying the project for more than a year. If I had done this before, this car would be completed by now...

    So far, I almost too out the rocker panel this week. Of course. I'll take pictures when it's completely removed.

    Finally took the thing off tonight! It went faster than I first thought it would. You can clearly see the reason I had to take that off... rust cancer! The front part isn't really a problem but the rear will be a fun challenge.

    after you replace the rocker panel spray the inside of it with stuff called honey coat. I used to use that after my 1/4 panel and rocker panel repairs to give the inside some rust protection.

    Re: Carotman's 1987 hatchback project

    Thanks for the input. I was wondering what would be best for long term rust protection. I'll use POR-15 for the paint but weld protection will probably that honey coat

    Re: Carotman's 1987 hatchback project

    being your taking your time and doing this the right way, i would put in that extra effort. Por-15 is a great product, many of the guys in the g-body and Oldsmobile community use the stuff religiously. I would also suggest getting a few cans of zinc weld through primer for when you re attach the rocker panel. then use the honey coat to finish it off when your done welding. I also found that using fire proof expanding foam will fill the rocker panel cavity to prevent further corrosion and stiffen's up the chassis a little bit. I did that to my gold hatchback and it made a bit of a difference, not to mention its light weight too.

    Hey Carotman - you still out there? Did you ever finish this project?
    I have an 88 DX on which I am currently trying to fix rocker panels.

    Hi

    It isn't finished. I had more important work to do elsewhere I guess. The project isn't dead and I plan to work on it soon.
