      Damn it Jamie can't you see than man's occupied? He doesn't need to shave a piddly 30 lbs off your 4000 ton sow of a car.

      I present to you.....


      The ELIMINATOR














      This is what I accomplished in about two hours... This tool just grabs and tears the undercoat right off (thanks Uber E)












      It cleans up the seams real nice.
























      not something you see everyday, my bro working on a car
















      I feel like I got a good third of the undercoat torn off. Hopefully tomorrow will be a productive day as well.
      (I'll try and post some vids of the car getting flipped and the eliminator in action)

      Nice work so far man, it's coming along. Why are you stripping the undercoat again? To reapply it with new stuff?

      Yup, and to make sure that I get rid of all the rust that might be hiding under that undercoat...

      I want it rust free.

      I want to apply POR15 to the entire bottom.

      Anyone have any opinions on the stuff?

      Works good as long as you do perfect surface prep. It tends to not like to stick to clean rust free panels if you don't prep well.

      I prefer to Epoxy prime, thick basecoat with leftover or paint that was mixed the wrong color, then bedliner.

      Yeah, I've used it. I built a rotisserie for my Mk3 as well. I've POR-15'd the whole undercarriage and passenger compartment. It's great stuff. YOU HAVE TO CLEAN/PREP the surface good.

      Also, do it in a well ventilated area and where mask/goggles/gloves/long sleeves... That stuff will make you feel like sh!t and you'll have black boogers for a week...

      Do you have details on your wire-brush grinder? I've seen the Snap-on Crud Remover but it's crazy expensive, and the knotted wire wheels for 4-1/2" angle grinders don't last long.

      Nice work by the way, I might have to do the same soon!

      It came with 3 wire brushes and the eraser wheel.

      This was the cheapest I could find it.

      They don't tell you how much the shipping is before you pay though...

      it was only $17

      I like this tool a lot. I never tried removing undercoat before, but I think I saved myself a lot of time by investing in this tool straight up.

      It's says to only use their stuff, but I used another brand for Metal Prep and it came it fine.

      I certainly do. You'll be happy with the new album, it's very quintessentially Cephalic, but quite different form all their other albums at the same time.

      Thanks ^

      The past week I have been working on the car every chance I could. I have most of the undercoat stripped. I just need to clean up the inconspicuous areas.

      POR 15 is on it's way. Should be here this weekend.


      Today I stripped most of the seam sealer in the bay. I want to clean the bay up but I still want the car to function as a daily.

      Things to do...
      -Battery goes in the boot
      -Windshield washer container will be modified to fit in the fender or in the rain tray.
      -Coolant reservoir might be modified to fit in the rain tray as well.
      -Power steering juice container will also be relocated.


      I have to look around for more ideas.




      I originally thought I would keep the car silver....

      However, I know that I won't be happy with a silver car.

      Since I have everything torn out, I am considering spraying it as well.

      Marine Clean, metal etcher, then basic prep-all. That how I do it. The "rougher" the metal the better the POR-15 works.

      I ordered the marine clean and the prep and ready.

      Metal etcher primer?

      The POR 15 will adhere better to it but will it keep out the moisture like it says it will when its sprayed over primer?

      ^thanks


      It's gonna be a long weekend. My goal was originally to paint the bottom of the car. However, prepping the undercarriage is becoming much more tedious than I originally expected. I am being really meticulous with getting all the undercoat out of every nook and cranny.

      My new goal for this weekend is to have the underside completely cleaned. I had some helping hands Yesterday and scraped off a good portion.

      I scraped the car today. My brother walked into the garage and looked in disbelief when he saw my girlfriend helping. She helped me out for three hours today.

      My dad stepped into the "shop" and said that a buddy from work suggested I use fiberglass for the holes.


      Does using fiberglass to patch up the holes sound like a proper fix?

      Anyone have any experience patching with fiberglass?

      It would much easier than cutting and welding.

      Whoa whoa whoa, Jess helped on the car? My mind is blown.

      And I think fiberglass wouldn't be a good substitute for metal. Just my unprofessional armchair mechanic opinion

      I don't know how I overlooked this.

      I found some replacement rocker panels on ECS tuning.

      This means that I just need to concentrate on patching up the floor.

      This will definitely save me some time.
