nice work dude, can see the mommitment to the project. The absolute WORST thing about old cars is the bodywork and fixing the crap repairs other have done to it over the many years. Keep it up!!

P.s. nice g-unit tee

wish i had your contacts, i got quoted a hell of a lot more than that, i did get some parts like the engine bay etc done in the end where i couldnt get into it sandblasted but it was only small and didnt cost too much. plus it was a good experience to really get into it like that, i know it seems hard but i also wanted to have a hand in the building of the car and i feel handing it over like that seemed a bit too easy but also expensive :( youll see in the next photos...

sandblasting is over rated and most people sandblast places that you cant even get into with anything to seal it up. All for the Old school doin it by hand and with Power tools like this guy has done. especially on these thin little beasts. Most places sand blast cars like this to the point that they make the ocean look straighter. Well done mate Keep up the good work.

i used SODA not SAND theres a diffrients,
soda it doesnt matter if it gets into places that you cant get at, you just wash down with soapwater than blow airdye, does'nt pit the metal in anyway nor make it rusty
i had all the suspension parts done aswell, fantastic job
with the body and running gear all up cost $620 well worth it www.sodablast.com.au
