Overhaul of a 1976 Chamonix from NM.


Recommended Posts

You can see all of the gory details at the blog I will attempt to keep running and up-to-date: www.chamonix-2002.blogspot.com.

I have been lurking on the board since I bought the car in 2005. I may have even posted a few times. Minor details have interrupted my time here (grad school, wedding, baby, blah blah blah).

At any rate, at this point these project blogs seem to be a dime a dozen, but at some point I might come up with something unique to share. I am dismantling the car to the best of my (limited) ability and will send the rolling shell out when it gets there to have rust repaired and new paint.

I will re-learn how to post pics and update shortly.

Did some more tar stripping today. Used a heat gun to help. First I was using a 1" chisel/scraper, but then I started using the awl/pick that you see below. That thing worked great on its own.


My new favorite tool.


What I found as I removed more tar. Does not seem to extend past this point and it is not nearly as bad on the passenger side.
