Ok gang it’s time to get the ball rolling! The little brown shades have me worried... I can’t spend my life saving to start the resto. I’m gonna do it!!! I have a thousand questions to ask and research but I’m going to hassle your collective wisdom for just a few answers at this stage... I need a confidence boost to calm my nerves! I think I’m going to get the car sandblasted before I assess the panel beating. Ideally I would be more satisfied if I did as much of the work as possible however I am going send the shell to a sandblaster and panel beater to tackle the big jobs before I worry about paint. So ladies and gents, here are my questions! If I were to strip the larger panels myself before the sandblaster will I be avoiding warping or wasting time? (I have been quoted on average $2000 to have the outside and underneath done completely). Am I tempting fate if I do strip panels and leave them bare for a week before the sandblaster coats them in primer? Am I crazy to think I can restore the body before Easter? I really appreciate your time everyone! Phill P.S here are some pics of the project!
