That's a pretty solid car. Some rust but t doesn't look detrimental. Keep going. Do not let it turn into a garage queen.

Short term plan just to get it to a Presentable/Reliable state, Long term plan Cruise/Track car.


Kev- POR15 is brush on, you can spray it but highly toxic. The consistency is like water so its hard for it not to run. Once you get the hang of it, its easier to control. POR15 has great self leveling properties. Did mad research on it, if you do all the correct prep work the Quality and longevity is awesome. I Will do under fenders next.
HEY WAIT A SEC :) I learned it from your Build... LMAO

Long awaited update:
Image

Uploaded with ImageShack.us

After a Long debate on how to tackle the HAKO rust issues I decided to do the right thing and get Her stripped to bare metal. So the disassembly began a couple months back.

So after a struggle on where to start and getting over the fear of maybe forgetting how to pt it back together. I started at the fenders.

week and a half later. Hako stripped and all the imperfection are shown. Overall I thought it would be way worst but body is pretty solid. There is some SHTY Places. Overall glad I took the time to do it correctly these places would just pop up sooner or later.

I'm not body man but if your going to spend the time to replace a quarter panel, why couldn't you take the extra time to align them???? Most of the patches made for the car were done the same. Well the other ones are worse
