PostSubject: Officialy under construction   Wed Mar 18, 2009 6:49 pm

I started working on the rust this past weekend. There is alot of it to get rid of.

I started on the hood, as I figured I would make the most progress. But after four hours, I had to call it quits and prime up till I can do more. I did finish the top of the fender and the hood to the body line.
No real before shots, sorry. But you can see in the first pic the rust I had to contend with. And the second one shows how much metal I had to remove to get to fresh metal.




Some after shots of finished areas.

If not for the fact that this is a 94 ss, I would have considered another color. But because of the year and the one color choice for that year, and the fact I would have to do all the jams, I will stay with black. If I can find someone to mask off some flames, I might do some ghost flames in a dark grey. scratch

Did up the pasenger side rear quarter yesterday, and if not for crappy rechargeable batteries, I would have taken before and after shots. The good news is very little rot on that side. Giggity Giggity, AALLRRIIGGHHTT! Razz

But I am dead in the water until I find a drivers side LRQ.

Got new rechargable batteries yesterday so I took a couple pics to keep this thread updated. Very Happy
There was alot of rust on this quarter, but not much went through. I will weld in a small patch this coming weekend.
I know Bill. I am suposed to practice on yours first. If you can wait till mod day, I will do them then, or sooner if you need them. Very Happy



I even sanded the peeling clear coat off the rear wingy. Razz
I will have to remove it to do it right.

Little things excite me. Coming home to a broken cloths washer is not one of them, nor is cleaning over 3 gallons of water off the floor from said washer. But when my maxx fil 2k high build sandable primer showed up, well I got excited. This stuff fills little imperfections and sands great. Once sanded this stuff is durable and glass smooth.

No, but while I was sitting in my driveway talking to you on the phone, my wife was inside mopping and steam cleaning carpets and all kinds of wonderful things queen . In the end, a hose fell off inside.

Welding is easy once you set the welder right for the metal your working with. Just remember "roll of dimes layed out" and you'll be fine every time.

That's the hard part. Bending and cutting metal so that it looks like it was stamped by a machine takes alot of skill and practice. I can't manage to cut an even circle with a compass and a template Crying or Very sad
