HOME BUILDER TECH TIPS FROM SOUTHERN WHEELS
Before priming new reproduction body panels, spray them first with self-etching primer (check to see if your paint system is compatible. We use SEM# 39683 and have sprayed lacquer primer over it and painted with nitro or acrylic enamel with no problems.) Some repro panels are manufactured overseas and are coated to protect them in shipping. We've had trouble with the paint bubbling over lacquer primer, so we use etching primer first, then lacquer primer, then paint. Works for us!

A LITTLE ABOUT US
Because American Rods and Rides is geared toward "car people", we run our business accordingly. We have spent the last 14 years researching and perfecting what car enthusiasts are looking for. We combined this knowledge with more than 50 years of experience to create a website that will allow us to change and grow with the sport and hobby of street rods, muscle cars, customs, antiques, classics, race cars, and project vehicles. Our Website Is Designed For People Who Are Better With Wrenches Than Computers. We hope you enjoy it!

We would like to thank all of the street rod family for their support. We attend National Street Rod Association, GoodGuys, and Right Coast Association events all over the country. We are members of SEMA, HRIA, ISCA. These organizations are extremely worthwhile joining if you like old cars or new cars. We are involved with everything from 1932 Fords and Chevys, right up to woodies, shoe box cars, and muscle cars. Weather you drive a super sport Chevy Impala, or a nostalgia drag car we love them all. Our site has vendors like Watson’s Street Works, Borgeson Universal, Unisteer, California Car Cover, Holley Performance, AirBagIt, Rock Valley, Technostalgia, Ron Francis Wiring, and lots of others. Take some time and look through the site, and when you buy from one of our street rod vendors mention our name. Also look for us at the Street Rod Nationals, GoodGuys Columbus nationals, NSRA York PA, Syracuse Nationals, and many other large and small car events. We speak “Car” fluently, and love to talk to other street rodders and car nuts.
