30 lbs savings!! Interior Stripping...

Well...have a couple of days scrapping away at the interior of my car, I have completely removed all the factory tar paper and sound deadening. Now I have to start stripping the paint out and grinding away the seam sealer.

I know that some thinks highly of this procedure to both 911 chassis and 914 chassis and after doing this I would have to agree. I thought I had a rust free tub, but I was mistaken...I found some areas of surface rust in the corners of rear deck and some on the floor boards. I also straightened out the floorboards from people jacking the car up incorrectly. Its getting there. POR-15 to come soon.

For the weight freaks here...all the tar paper and sound deadening stuff weighed 30 lbs!!
