Painting The Firewall With POR-15, Part 1

Here are the before shots of the firewall and the two inner areas below where the speaker mounts and behind the door jam. Sara worked on the firewall and I worked on the two inner areas.

Found a use for this dauber! I am cutting off the previously used end.

Now I have two stir sticks; one with a convenient handle!

Sara is wearing her POR-15 shoes and is ready to get started.

We opted to use the silver POR-15 on this project. We have one can left and really want to get it used up. I am using one of my newly-made stir sticks to stir the POR-15. It works great!

I received Hello KITTy duct tape from a friend for my birthday. I am using it to cover the holes where the rear stone guards bolt on.

Sara thinks it looks very pretty.

There are inside shots after I painted the inner areas with POR-15. It was very hard to get into this areas, so I am not too concerned with how great it looks. You won't be able to see it anyway.

If there is POR-15 left over after Sara does a second coat on the firewall, I will do a touch-up coat on these inner areas. If not, I believe it is covered good enough to protect it, as I made the first application quite thick.

Pictures of Sara's first coat on the firewall. She is not happy with how the silver POR-15 covers. It does not self-level as well as the black POR-15.

Sara did not have issues with the black POR-15 running. Look at the drive tunnel in this picture. Sara puts the POR-15 on in much thinner coats than I do, and it still ran. We seemed to go through the silver POR-15 much faster than the black also. I am glad this is my last can of silver.
