Saint Pete Wagon!



  • Looking amazing! Do you have a connection at the paint shop, or are they letting you do work there?

  • SPWSPW Senior Wagonist

    Thanks Bro! Well I work there. Had a change in management and they’ve been cool enough to let me leave my car there. Don’t think I would be anywhere near where I am now if it weren’t for them letting me leave my car there.

    Just when you think you ready to paint and get this over with haha.

    Not sure if the pictures show it we were using a wet on wet sealer and it looks so gritty. Our primer laid better than that lol. It won’t look good at all if it’s painted over. Have to sand and scuff again and try not to burn through. I used this sealer on my last wagon and this did not happen. Turned out awesome. No explanation at this point. Time to get back at it.

    Sealer scuffed down. Had my good friend (painter) help me knock this set back out. Laid the base coat down tonight. Friend suggested to let the base coat dry sense everything is so enclosed and has a tough time on drying which could lead to other problems if clear is sprayed on top too soon. (Pictures are crooked not sure why lol)

    All the hardworking has paid off! She's all cleared up looking super slick.

  • so much work has been done paint looks great

  • SPWSPW Senior Wagonist

    Thanks! You are right about that. Never again haha.

    Bought a auto to manual block off plate for EF by NaytonTech. Not sure if I will be running a console yet. Probably not. Inside turned out so good. I wanna show it off haha. Had to modify it by trimming the tabs that hold the center console in place and filling the rest in with a two part urethane plastic repair material and A light coat of Bondo to even it out. Panel bonded the bolts to the plate so Ima go ahead and fill them bolts in and make it look smooth. Than it will get some primer and some glossy black afterwards. I think it will look great.

  • Well...gifs dont work. lol

    That paint looks so awesome. It looks like liquid metal.

  • That’s a cool block off plate. Are they 3D printed?

    I do wish we had a replacement shifter for the RT wagons. It’s so flimsy and most of the wear parts can’t be replaced anymore.

  • I haven’t seen that plate before looks good, doesn't NaytonTech also sell cup holders for our center console and cup holder by change pocket by the driver side? The paint looks great

  • SPWSPW Senior Wagonist

    I thought it was a gif haha. It's ok I imagined it. Thanks man it does look like liquid metal! Im glad the clear hasn't died back. Still look super shiney. Very happy with the results.

    Yes they are 3D printed. He makes a ton of different stuff. Maybe he could help you out?

    Yea its fairly new. I tested the prototype and now we got a functioning version. Yes he does sell those things. I think he has free shipping until the end of the year. Thanks Bro!

    Wagon shell has been blocked and sanded. Found and repaired dent. Must of got damaged in storage. Time to get this roof painted.

  • SPWSPW Senior Wagonist

    Parts are all cut in and repaired. Time to get the rest of the panels blocked and we’re good to go on painting her.

  • all new everything 👌 your wagon is going to look incredible

  • SPWSPW Senior Wagonist

    Thanks Bro. I sure hope so.

    I can give you more dents. 😒

    Hopefully it’s the last of them I have to find and fix. But I did have the roof painted. 😎
