Default Disassembling and sanding

Car is coming apart piece by piece. I've been sanding each panel and removing them for paint prep. A friend is doing the final sanding and paint work.

Default Progress update

In response to what I was using. Good old fashioned sanding. Purchased a D/A sander and used lots of 300 grit sandpaper. I probably have close to 40 hours of sanding in it, maybe more.
The hood, fenders, doors and trunk are painted. My buddy has the bumpers covers currently. When they are done, the car itself will get painted. The car is behind schedule but it is making progress. I'm now doing some of the mechanical repairs that weren't necessary for being road worthy but will increase it's looks and safety. Might as well while I'm waiting on paint for the main body. I've come to realize that every piece of rubber on this car is dry rotted. It'll get done. Divide and conquer. I'll post pictures soon.

Your avatar photo looks exactly like my vehicle, 0327, looked when I got it. All white, faded, with it wearing off in places and the black paint showing through.
40 hrs of sanding, wow, you've got patience and determination! For the rubber, take a look at Soffseal:

https://www.soffseal.com/

They'll send you a catalog on request. I got 0327's rubber parts from there and they were fine to work with.

Good luck!

Default At the doorstep of getting paint completed

Hi everyone,
Quick update. Nothing really to show other than a change of venue. The car was delivered to my buds place to get the roof, quarters and jams painted. Should be getting started on this thing Monday or Tuesday. Pics will follow once done. Here it is at his shop.
