My mechanic is finally done with his part on the 3800 sc and I can start my job--plumbing, suspension, insolation and so on. I'm starting by having the engine tub media blasted and was thinking about having the underside bead blasted as well. After that I was kicking around the idea of coating the underside with the Line-x pickup bed coating. I won't be coating the engine tub with the coating. Is this a waste of money and unnecessary?

The bare Fiero spaceframes were dunked in an anti-corrosion bath at the factory (the black finish you see on the frame).

Once you strip all that factory coating off, you WILL have to recoat everything with some kind of rust proofing even if it's not a winter driver.

I had my '04 Ford truck bed coated with Line-X when it was new (in '04), and the coating is still perfect, with no sign of coming off anywhere Line-X is sprayed on hot, and the truck is ready to go 30 minutes later, when it cools. But I'm not sure how they would put it on the underside of a car. You'd have to put the car on a lift, and I doubt that the typical Line-X dealer has a lfit.

You're right. They will do wheel wells but not the underside. Also, they can not do the engine bay because the heat is just too high,. Thanks guys.

Powder coating is a great idea. There are other components in the suspension I am also going to have powder coated. I've got a 2 part paint for the engine bay.
