Frame clean up
#1
I recall some discussion about removing undercoating before sanding the frame but I couldn't find it. So heres a new thread we can archive but I know I don't want to waste sanding disks on this stuff. Any recommendations of what works well and what doesn't would be helpfull.

I recall that thread too. I tried a few different solvents based on the suggestions and it probably depends on what undercoating was used but the best solution I found for the the spray undercoating that a previous owner had coated on the underside of the hood was plain old varsol/ paint thinner with a few scotchbrite pads.
You can see the difference in the attached pic. Dull black is the thick coat of spray-can undercoat and the shiny black is rustpaint from another P/O quick fix.

This stuff is about an 1/8 of inch thick. Scraper first then thinner maybe?

Tnfastbk,
Did you use a cup wheel or narrow. I'm going to start on this mess in the morning.

Guess you would call it a cup wheel, just one that attaches to an angle grinder. Wear old clothes and safety glasses.

Thanks Roy. I'm chomping at the bit to get on this. You should have seen my neighbors when we pulled up with another Mustang on a trailer and it "disappeared" as one of them put it into the garage. I think they think I'm a half a bubble off! Tongue

Good luck we spent a week or so on the bottom/wheel weels of mine, but looks nice when you are done.

Heat gun & assorted putty knifes for the bulk of it then hit home depot & pickup motsenbocker's "lift off" paint & varnish remover" it's a water base stripper that works great check out my videos (tail lamp resto) on you tube (links are in my videos on the site) where I'm using it to strip my tail light housings... You can thank me now if like Tongue
