Hi
I am going to be sandblasting the frame and cab of my 71 406 and wanted to know if the factory used lead paint? The red primer they used stuck better than the black top coat that just flacked off! I hope it's not red lead primer!

Thanks
Will

I'm not sure if the original paint was lead based or not, but the easiest was to tell for sure is to pickup a lead test kit. Home depot, Lowes or you local hardware store should carry a lead paint test kit. I picked one of these up at home depot a few months ago and it cost about $4.00. I was able to test multiple items with just one kit. Defiantly worth the piece of mind.
