Stripping the car for sandblasting

As mentioned in the previous post, the chassis is really, really rusty. So, we stripped the chassis down for sandblasting before we repair the sheet metal.

There were some very poor repairs from what was clearly a big accident earlier in this car's life:

With the chassis fully stripped down, we dropped it off with American Stripping in Sacramento. They'll be blasting off the paint, the bondo over the bad repairs, the sound deadening, and the rust and nastiness caked on the shell.

From there we'll repair the rusted and damaged panels, seam weld, and start fabrication.

More to come!
