After a recent overall check up of my car, I was told that the steering gear box is leaking. The garage said that this is more than just replacing a gasket, usually a rebuild box should be installed. Online I found a rebuilt version (USAParts, if I remember correctly) but it is quite pricey, about $400. Is this something that I could do my self to save some money? I did notice that I could not see any rebuild kits for a steering box, while kits for carb, transmission or other items are quite common. TIA Stefan
Restoring a car offers many choices. One of those is paint. To get modern hold out on paint alot of guys use PPG and Dupont which offers great quality paint lines but the prices tend to be a little high for a home DIYer like me. I am doing a frame off on a 1959 Buick hardtop by myself to save tens of thousands of bucks. I was thinking of using Duponts Chromobase line because that is what I can get locally but has anyone used TCP Globals paint line? I am going to use the epoxy primer, base, clear system but do not know how the paint holds up over time and the quality of the paint sold through TCP. Does anyone have experience with their paint? Thank You Josh
