    72 Q-Code drinkin' soda

    Finally after 5 years of staring at my car and stripping ever-so-slowly, it is time. Time to do the restore.

    Car and pieces were loaded up and sent to soda blaster.
    Sheet metal ordered from Dallas Mustang
    Tools ordered from Eastwood
    Two weeks off as of Dec 17.

    Parts ordered:
    Qtr panels (both sides)
    Wheel houses (inner and outer)
    Deck Lid
    Hood
    Misc pieces

    I hope to have all body panels replaced by Jan 1 then we can throw on a primer (for protection) then block sanding starts.

    Excited to get started.

        Awesome. I'm really impressed. I agree with the motto, if it's worth doing, it's worth doing right.

              Its funny. I originally was only going to do a partial resto, but as I started taking parts off I would notice something deeper that would cause me concern so I would take more off. That continued until I finally decided that I needed to do it all the way. Its gonna be expensive and take a long time, but it will be worth it in the end.

                  Thats sure going to be a lot of work but you'll know what you got when your done. The body looks pretty good from what I can tell. Good job.

                      Holy schnikies!!! You never know what is under that layer of paint (or layerS of paint) until you get it soda blasted. There is more rust, bondo and fiberglass than I ever expected to see. I'll get pics when I get it home. Unbelievable. I have my work cut out for me.
