Haha, thanks mate.
I read you're thread and I think I got some pretty crazy standards to meet.
But I have always been the type that if its going to be done. Its going to be done properly the first time. And then i shouldn't have to worry about it for a long while and then it should last another 30 years or so
I'd really like to do a detailed build thread from ground up through the entire process. Thats the aim anyway.
So i'm in the process of getting the body right with as little filler as necessary. There is so many rust holes in this thing, so much more than when i bought it showed (but to be expected). So everything has to be metal welded in. It just has to be done right! Just won't allow myself to put unnecessary amounts of filler in there (in fact i hate the idea of using filler at all, even if it is inevitable).
Few things i might have blemished, such as the rear wheel arch isn't quite as good as i'd hoped with my attempted fix. Its only a little dent that i could fill, but might need to get a panel beater to look at it and fix it.
And at the moment i'm trying to work out if i feel confident enough to do the rear quarters or not (both need replacing). But either way i'll need someone pro to fix up a few other issues this car has. So if its not going to cost an arm and a leg, i might get them to run a new piece of metal around the rear arch where its had a few problems and just neaten it up. Or i could leave it, i don't know.
Then once most of the rust is done where i can see it and easily get to. It'll be stripped then onto the rotisserie (or pushed on its side) and getting the underside and all the other bits i missed with the welder completely reworked and ground down so it looks all nice underneath. Then time to paint the bottom side in Gravitex or equivalent. Then... finally i can take the time to strip it back and paint it.
Then start to rebuild it again. With the, err, New Stuff.
