I'm going to come right out and ask the stupid question -- just a couple days ago, there was a big thread on how the chassis gets electrostatically plated and is essentially impervious to rust. There's no way we can duplicate that process without a massive factory because it gets inside all the nooks and crannies that you can't reach. Peter, I'd believe that your '70 would be old enough to not be treated, but wouldn't Paul's '88 be taken care of? Were there parts that didn't get dipped in the magic electro-coating, like bumpers, doors, hoods that would benefit from this? It looks like the guy in your pictures is doing chassis-type stuff, though. (confused shaking head) I don't understand...

I apologize if I've totally missed the boat on this one, but it seems like a pretty massive duplication of effort, in my admittedly knowledge-limited opinion.
