Another shot and now I am glad I removed the splash well as it was a lot easier to get in there and clean it really good.

I would use TSP to clean it and use a stiff bristle brush. Let it dry for a couple of days then Gluvit.

I'm just sayin...:D

Re: Starcraft Progress

Hello all, well I did not get a lot done this weekend as I had other projects to do so I was only able to clean a few of the trim parts that I have pictures of. I was wondering if anyone has painted the aluminum trim parts that do not clean up really good and what you used and thanks in advance for advice.

Have you tried this? I want to try it on mine, but need someone to be a guinea pig first. :p

Re: Starcraft Progress

and one more picture of the splashwell that I was grinding on today. One of my projects today was to go to HF and get a new toy. I got one of the soda blasters they have on sale and will try it out next weekend on the inside of the boat to see how well I can clean it up. If I can wait that long to play with it LOL.

Well changed the name but the game is the same. I hope this change will get more views and get my questions answered as I am trying to stay in my thread instead of asking seperate questions as I was told. I will also add a thanks to all who watch and help.:D

Hello all, can someone tell me if there is a way to combine my threads into just the one. I changed the names of the titles to all the same as this as I thought they would combine but it did not seem to work or can this even be done. it took me a while just to figure out how to change the title duh.:confused:

PM one of the mods, sweet-talking them may work, but bribes are usually a sure bet ;)

just kidding...but do pm one of them for help/support.

also did a little trailer work and removed the axle and springs to clean them up and repair as needed. as you can see in the picture no wheels. It was easy to remove as all the bolts and nuts just snapped off LOL.
