Hu, never knew. Good idea.

I'll check tomorrow, but I think it is already opened up.

What is the proper way to get these things out, and where can I buy more?

If they are plastic speed nuts, remove screw from other side, pinch and push. Replace here:

Linky no worky. I'll find it in a munute. Sorry about the accidental double pic.

Thanks.

Not sure the pinch and remove is working right. They either come out with much pain, or they just break.

RN has them for either .45 cents... or $2.95....... Is there anything wrong with buying the ProLine here?

Did you mean to put a link there? All I see is two of the same pic.

They are probably identical. But if unsure about cheap Chinese plastics, I'd buy a set of each. Inspect and compare the quality of the plastic, and then send back the expensive ones if there is no difference. You just don't want the things to blow apart when you screw into them.

I'm reading it as that price for ONE since there is no indication of it being a set. If it was a set of 4-6, sure I'd buy.

Either way, I basically just needed to know I could get replacements from someplace before abusing all these that I'm pulling off.

Thanks,

Unfortunately, I'm certain that price is each, but pinching and pushing back through should save a few.

Then again, you don't want to be using your old ones, necessarily, as replacing these things again if they break won't be as easily accessed as they are now.

They are used all over the place. Buy them in bulk.

I bet if you walked down to your kickass hardware store, they would have something very similar. I was able to source, right out of the hardware bins, the much smaller plastic nuts used in the bulkhead - either Ford or GM bits.

That is, unless you really want to know that you have purely overpriced British nylon nuts on your dash. The nuts won't know the difference

OK. I have the bulkhead stripped. What rust there was is fixed and patched.

So now I have it in my garage, and I'm rigging a lift it so I can hang it for the prep and paint.

I have a two-part epoxy primer and gun and all, getting ready to make final decision on color (hey, if I'm going to paint, why match the blue I don't like? More on this later.)

And I have two-part Hippo-Liner ready to go for the kick panels and such. (Also for the floor and seat box.)

QUESTIONS:
  1. The cleaner/stripper put on a "phosphate" coating after it was washed and dried. I asked them about what to do to prep for paint now, and they simply said to apply the primer right over this.... OK... well, I'm just a bit skeptical. I have an email in to ask for more specifics, and I've tried to find the answer on other forums, etc. It seems that you "can" paint over it, but a lot of people say to scotch bright it, then clean with acetone before painting. Prime right over, or acetone first? Both options seem logical in a way, but unsure for this particular project.
  2. Should I be liberal with the seam sealant, or careful to keep a tight bead and work it in without any over-spill?

I used DP90 two part epoxy. Now I have rust through on the A pillar I am getting ready to repair. GALVANIZE IT!

God I wish I did. When I did my frame and bulkhead, Colorado sanded roads. Now they use mag chloride and i battle rust. Should have galvanized everything... Lesson learned.

As I've said before, I can't argue with galvanizing, but at the same time we don't use salt. I am getting paint on the inside as well. And frankly, if I could find someone who would do the job, I probably would give it over to them to galvanize it, but two outfits in the area have told me they won't do it.

Even without salt being used on the roads, it will still rust. You have done a TON of work on it so far, and if you go that little bit further, you will know it will NEVER rust again, ever. There has to be someone around there that would be willing to galvanize it.

If you contact American Galvanizers Association American Galvanizers Association I am sure they will put you in contact with a local company that would be able to look after it for you.

Once you get stuff like this done, you will realize you won't ever have to go back and do it again.

Best advice; they is likely a galv shop near you no matter where you are; certainly worth the drive for that kind of longevity. If you think it was a pain to do once try doing it twice

I've now had four different companies in the Portland area tell me that they won't do the job. I didn't tell the last two what the job was, only the approximate size and weight.

meh... I'm not galvanizing my bulkhead either, Ben.

Just throw caution to the wind and build it.
