hey bro, i've used both dupont and nason, got good results with both, but by far dupont centari rocks!!!! and for your truck do all the body and paint first, as i have done alot of resto's and customs over the years, it is way easier to clean over spray off a blank interior(ha-ha), then to try to clean carpet and upholstery, when doing the interior make sure paint is at least 30 days old, then put 2" wide masking tape down on all the jams, then put duct tape over that to prevent scratching the fresh paint, install the carpet, then do all the interior, then install the windows, then install the seat, then the door panels, that way no chance of hurting any of the other parts, it has always worked good for me, and that is the way all big name shops do it,  hope this helps, it makes things go easier, and in the end saves you money and time, cuz overspray on any interior stuff sucks..tom

thanks for the tip man, dont worry im not a half asser, paint and interior is way way way down the line, im yankin the frame and starting from the ground up, this truck is to old and to rare (for around here) to do it all redneck, i am a perfectionist, im the kind of person that goes to the store and reads the label on each product then goes home and reads online about them and the figure out if its best for me then i go buy it, i take my time, use my patience and get it done right the first time

its funny you ask that because in the back of the store we have por 15 metal ready cleaner, but hell i called corporate and they said no no no we cant get por 15, then i ended up finding a catalog for it in our catalog stash, i need to call again and talk to somebody that knows what they are talking about

Yeah Braden, I've looked around down here, but I've never went to the counter and sasked anyone if they could get it. Ez told me he found a place to order it cheap, can't remember where, I'm sure he'll chime in when he reads this.
