WOW...glad to see you picked up another toy. this new thread has been an enjoyable read. damn, you work quickly. love the basement wall art pic. maybe Chris and I can come up for the show this summer. looks like it might be done by then. nice work as always. keep the pics coming.
You can also lay down some of the factory undepadding and use a large sledge hammer, I have done it in the past and worked out fine, that is if your b-in-law decides not to come by!

Eric you are a maniac. And this thread is proof that you have "the 'itis'" lol. Good for you getting the kids involved too...I'm calling CPS as I type this.

For not so sharp dents you can tackweld a threaded nut onto the dent and then pull with a bolt attached to the slide hammer. I did that on mine, not sure if your hammer came with a threaded tool attachment thingie?
you sure do work fast man, kinda getting me motivated to start working on the body again, but it's to dam cold to do anything, and the weather has been really weird
one day it's some what nice, then the next its raining or snowing
I can't wait till it finally warms up a bit so I can finish the last little bit of body work

So what's the actual plan here? Spot rust treatment or something else? You are doing a great job but it would seem that the next step would be to get the car to "bare metal" when doing a restoration, though not sure what your final goal is besides "stupid clean!"
Maniac is about as big an understatement as when Eric says he is just doing "general cleaning".
Eric - when you say "tasty beverages" are you talking Red Bull? Because if someone videoed your work, and then played it, it would probably look like the player was fast forwarding.
I look at my Cirrus Gray beauty in the garage, being restored at a snail's pace, and I am embarassed! Funny - or not - I was going to take tomorrow off specifically to work on my car. Then 15 minutes go, the boss calls a 'group meeting' at 12:00 noon.
Nicely done Eric, I hope to gain some inspiration from this thread.
