Flop Thanks for taking the time to document your work. It is a great source for all of us in the hobby. I was wondering why you don't media blast the body before you start the repairs?

I didnt either, wanted to wait till the metal work was done before media blasting, I wanted it totaly clean before epoxy primer.

no problem tin cup!


metalho brings up a valid point in why as to why wait if I can. i like my work to be blasted as well incase anything is thin ... the blaster will blow through !


well the last of the bracing to be rebuilt is the b pillar where it attaches to the subrail . It really wasn't in to bad a shape but still needed redone .



whipped this little piece up to fill the void

Did I miss something? What is the purpose of the slice in the door bottom?

Flop, that seems like a very small hiccup, compared to what you started with and all the improvements you are making to this body. Keep up the great work. This is probably one of the most interesting threads on the Barn. Wish you were closer. I have a 27 roadster pickup body that needs a little attention.
