Id suggest soda blast as its better all round. Secondly if your planning to drive it semi-often put on some underbody deadener. It will sound like a dam drum if you dont lol. It can be done to still make it nice. Guess it depends if your making a trailer queen.

13k is not bad for costs as long as you hold the final payment and only pay on customer acceptance.

Does it include reassembly after paint?

Just my 2c worth

Nate , its really up to what you think... if thats within your budget and the paint guys makes you feel confident in his aproach id say go for it. Seems a fair price to me. I like the colour choice you have.
stay motivated !

What are your thoughts on that?

Couldn't start until the end of Jan.
Nate, Grab it! For body and paint that is a steal. It's not hard to spend double that. Looking forwaed to seeing some colour on there

Have seen examples of the body work of other customers before any paint is applied?
If he does good work $13K for paint and bodywork doesn;t sound too bad.

I am heading away for a couple of weeks.

So I see my next step is to view some of the work he has done, and check out his shop.

Get a firm written quote, with an outline of the timeframe.

Still he is the only shop that has looked at it. Everyone else isn't to keen.

Starting to get it fully stripped now.

Just got to get the doors off and gutted, finish pulling the dash out then truck it out to Chris at Yarra Valley Blasting

The truth will be revealed about how much rust is really hiding under 47 years of paint...

This is where you all wish me luck!

Good to see it under way Nate, I dated a 47 year old woman a long time ago, she was sagging in the front end but she had no rust. You could be lucky too.

So I guess you could say the ball is rolling...

I have had the doors and all hanging panels bead blsted. Came up pretty good... found the usual surprise's.

The back doors that we thought were perfect, are still in great shape. However the back left has a lead repair and the back right had a real bad bog patch over a dint.

Will sort some pics out of the blasting over the weekend.

Moved the Chev to my brothers on Saturday... Of course is pissed with rain, so me and the old man got creative with the shrink wrap... Handy when you work for a storage company



---------- Post added at 09:03 PM ---------- Previous post was at 08:26 PM ----------

Got the floor all sorted on the weekend.

Its solid, and in great condition after 47 years.

Gave it a once over with the wire wheel on the angle grinder



I used KBS and was really impressed with it. Was very easy to work with and the end result was great.



The spot light reflects weirdly on the gloss...
