      Google says its 35.5 miles from home to Hammond IN.
      I'm up on the northwest side of Chicago. Basically right on the border of it.

      I attached it right were the bumpers would attach.

      For the back I had to get 8mm couplers to lengthen the studs. They only stick out about an inch...

      [SIZE=5]I present to you.....


      The ELIMINATOR[/SIZE]













      [SIZE=3]This is what I accomplished in about two hours... This tool just grabs and tears the undercoat right off (thanks Uber E)[/SIZE]












      [SIZE=3]It cleans up the seams real nice.[/SIZE]
























      [SIZE=3]not something you see everyday, my bro working on a car[/SIZE]
















      [SIZE=3]I feel like I got a good third of the undercoat torn off. Hopefully tomorrow will be a productive day as well. [/SIZE]
      (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.

      ^^^ that's what I read on their site too...

      Did you guys prep it with Metal Ready?

      or the Prep Ready?

      (same thing isn't it?)







      Thanks for all the positive feedback! It's really motivating.

      I want the Vinyl so bad.


      I heard most of the album and it's awesome.

      I'm gonna have to buy it and give them the support that they deserve.
