POR15 & Lizard Skin

Post #1 by ssg66stang » Wed Jan 24, 2018 2:28 pm

I'm looking to redo my interior. I have purchased Lizard Skin Sound Deadener and their Ceramic Heat Coating, but before I apply the Lizard Skin I need to prep the floor boards and remove some surface rust. My current plan is to remove the interior and wire wheel the floor pans, vacuum all the dust out and then wipe them down with lacquer thinner (lacquer thinner because I have some on hand and it will evaporate quickly). Then I plan on brushing on the POR15 (firewall to tail light panel in the trunk). Should I cover he top of the gas tank? Insides of the quarter panels?

I know once POR15 is dry it is hard for other substances to adhere to it so should I spray the Lizard Skin Sound Deadener while the POR15 is still tacky? Or should I wait until it completely dries and then scuff it with sandpaper or a wire wheel before applying the Lizard Skin?

Does anyone have any first hand experience with using these two products together?

Does anyone have any experience with either of these products? Any lessons learned or tips would be great?

Thanks
Aaron

Hi Aaron, as far as your plan for prep it's a good one. Sorry don't have the first hand experience using Por15 or Lizard Skin. Though I used most every type of coatings, epoxy's, and paints. On coating the inside of the quarter panels, inside the doors, firewall, and the bottom of roof, plus under the car I have used the spray type of under coatings and then sometimes painted over it with regular body paint if it shows like under the cars floor. This undercoating gives the car a more quiet solid sound and reduces that tinny sound so yes the Por15 and Lizard Skin will very likely work well for that too. Yes I would paint the top of the fuel tank too as long as you unbolt it and remove it from car first outherwise if you should ever have to take it out in the futhure it will be very hard to do. Good luck on your project. :thumbup: :nod:

I apologize for resurrecting this old post but I am barely getting around to applying the POR 15 and LizardSkin to my coupe. I have a question about seam sealer... Which one do ya'll recommend? I was planning on applying the seam sealer after the POR 15 but before the LizardSkin is this the correct order? What is the best seam sealer out there for the interior of a coupe?

Thanks in advance!

Finally getting around to doing the interior. Here are a few pictures of what was done today. Any tips/advice would be great. Should I just apply POR 15 directly over the metal floor pan plugs?

Thanks in advance

Usually I will remove those type parts so there is paint coverage for rust protection under them i.e. All the screw on / bolt on parts. On seam sealers I used to use the 3 M brand there maybe some newer or better products available now. The factory first primed the car body then did the seam sealer before the body was painted. Good luck on your Coupe looks like your doing a great restoration job on it. :thumbup: :nod:

Results from today. God-willing I will be able to shoot the SD LizardSkin tomorrow after we get home from church.

Eventually I will get to the rest of the firewall, but for now this is my plan. When I do the rest of the firewall I will repair the cowl vents as well.
