mint interior, and when i say mint i meant m.i.n.t. the headliner is perfect, the seats look like they have never been sat in. carpet is fresh and clean. all of which are red. the floors have zero rust which is incredibly weird since the rockers have seen way better days.
it has cancer of the radiator suport, rockers, and rear arches. the radiator support looks
more like a weapon or cheese grater than anything else. the rockers look like there was
a attempt to save them at one point. the rear arches have rust in the weirdest places.
kind of like if you lines up 10 s1's and the first nine were clean and rust free in one spot,
but the 10th had a holes the size of melons.
the plan is to strip the body of all of its valuable parts, and save them for later. strip the body of seam sealer and factory primer. reasons for this are we want to address everything
right off the back rather than repair thing next year and so on. we will be cutting and
replacing the front end and all other cancerous areas. a motor and drive train have already
been procreated from a past project.
first things first was to strip the body down bare. unfortunately there wasnt a camera around for the beginning. so just imagine taking out your interior, motor, and rear beam. leaving you with just a shell. not a rolling shell, just a shell. here is where the story continues:
with the body striped of all its parts and the interior set aside; a home made rotisserie was fabricated and fitted using the bumper mounts. over all the rotisserie cost $60 in wood, casters and bolts from home depot.
here is the first roll, and a kind of nervous one, at least for me.
stoked. it worked.
enough celebration, back to work!!
dove right in to it. here is tobias (tobiwonkonobi) addressing the last few bits in the engine bay.
meanwhile i attacked the rockers with the crud thug:
this thing rips threw seam sealer like butter.
it ended up getting late. so more picture to follow this week.[IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emgift.gif[/IMG]
