Before...

It all started with a two rust bubbles.  One on the bottom of the passenger door, and a more serious one on the bottom of the driver's side rocker.  That one was the outer rocker beginning to rust through. 

 

While I have owned the car since 1987, it was a daily driver before that.  So probably a good 17 years as a well-cared for daily driver.  So when I bought it in '87 I knew it was fairly solid, but not perfect, in terms of the condition of the body.  

 

And over the years, trips to Vintage and PVGP had certainly exposed it to a couple of full-on Midwestern downpours.  

 

So it was time to do something, before the car got much worse.  I had preserved it one other time in its history, so this was the second go-round.  

 

The paint from '92 was still in good condition, and I really didn't want to paint the entire car.  I knew if I did, I would find myself creating reasons not to drive it.  And really, the best part of having it is driving it.  I didn't want to paint myself into a corner (rimshot).  

 

Here are a few shots of it before the work started.  (Whoa what a trip down memory lane!  These are from the last six years or so).
