Nason is a good industrial grade product at a reasonable price. I've used it before, flows nice. Body on the Rambler looks real straight, nice job on the body work and prep! :thumbs:  Great father son project, getting to spend some time on the road test driving with him will make some great memories. Please post some pics as you install the drivetrain and finish the rest of the car. Tom

Nice work on the paint! A 343 in that little body should make for quite the sleeper.

I have never used Nason product but it being a urethane (moisture cure) I would not be wetting the floor. Hopefully you don't end up with any issues.  When I paint I blow the ceiling and walls with high pressure air and then vacuum floor the next day. Never had a problem with dirt.  Most dirt comes from the PAINTER or his hose..Wearing clean painting coveralls and covering all exposed skin including your melon is the best prevention. Spraying a can of raid the day before is also helpful. I learned that after spraying my 68 firebird and then watching a moth do a death march up the sail panel on wet paint!

The Rambler is a very frosty  car,

Jazz, I don't understand why not to wet the floor with that type of paint, could you explain more. Have heard of the spraying with raid before, but we didn't do it. No bugs in the paint. Lucky for us. Thanks for the info, Noel.

added moisture/humidity can speed drying process causing orange peel or dry spray.,It's just a opinion not shared by everyone.

Spraying bug spray is best done well before paint time, I've seen the residue in the air cause fish eyes, 24-36 hours after it was sprayed.
