Rust prevention continued!
Since I brought my brat back to Chicago, I noticed some rust starting to form on the rocker panels already, so I sanded them down to the metal and gave them two coats of rustoleum undercoating.
I'm rather pleased with how it turned out! :cool:
Hopefully this was a good choice, but only time will tell...
My trusty angle grinder that I used to get the paint off:
old rust and paint sanded down to bare metal:
The final product (the black streak marks are not paint, but tar from a recent road trip, they'll go eventually too):
I still have a lot more paint work to do on the car.
Future body plans include:
- welding up the wheel wells where there are some nasty holes
- fix up the bottom of the doors, which are getting pretty rusty (not sure how yet, any tips are welcome!)
- whole new paint job (haven't decided on the color yet)
