Pics From The '68 Refresh

I dug out photos from the work we did to my 02 back in 97 and scanned them. Sadly, the project turned into a timed event about half way through it as I had to go back to school, and I stopped shooting pics. More rust than I remembered it having, but now at least I know exactly where to look for it recurring.

 

Hope you enjoy.

Nice! What method did you use to strip down to the bare metal? Paint remover? Grinder? Sanding Discs and countless hours?

Hahahaha I totally know what you mean this is specially painful if the car has like 5 layers of paint to go through. I usually go with the grinder but again it damages the metal a little bit if you are not ultra careful.

 

Best bet would be a soda blaster but I'll get one when I'm rich ; )

It was by far the most challenging part of the whole thing. I'm sure it was made worse by the fact that the blue paint was applied with a brush, so it was about an inch thick. 

 

And that stripper is sheer evil. You'd be working away and all of a sudden get a sharp pain where a little drop had managed to find some exposed skin.

 

I remember being worried about grinder marks, but the super high build PPG primer we used really filled stuff in. It was almost like shooting a diluted bondo or something. The downside was the endless sanding.
