I would guess the bottom of the floor alone has around 5 pounds of the stuff, I will try and collect it and weight it all at the end.

Yes the sunroof is gonna be welded closed.

Rod,

I found this was a much better wheel for getting the undercoat off.

Robot Check

I am getting flashbacks while browsing your thread... Keep up the good work brother, it will pay off in the end....

Looking good, Rod!

I found the trick to getting the undercoat off the tight areas was a 2400 RPM air drill and a collection of Home Depot/Lowes wire brushes.



You probably figured this out, but the slower the RPM the better. Die grinders and other high speed grinders (over 2500 RPM) just ball up and make a mess. Even a cordless drill on low speed works well for small areas.

Thank you

Thank you gents.
I will have time Tuesday to hopefully finish this off.
I will P/U some of those smaller wire wheels and tackle the remaining areas.
Hope to have the car into the powder coater for April.

Thank you again
Rod

avation holes

Thank you very much Kevin.
I started on the front fenders today. Did some aviation lightening holes in those crazy heavy doors, my plan is to swiss cheese everywhere I can in an effort to shave pounds.

Thanks Kevin

An aluminum inspection cover to access the inner CV joints starter etc. The rear most bulk head is not in place in these photos but the rear section of the cage will tie into the rear shock towers through that panel.

So the title of this thread is very misleading.
