I paid 1,500.00 and drove it home about 10yrs ago,had a straight 8 cyl...then it I sold it to a friend and he just let it sit ...its still there as far as I know.

the active ingrediant in the soda is phosphric acid but theres a lot of junk in soda like carmel and sugar...what I use for cleaning steel and removing rust is ospho its made just for this type of work and its only 15.00 a qt and theres enough to do three cars....Thats only 5.00 a car...If theres anything better ,I havent found it... Plus you dont have to wash all that sticky stuff off...or worry about the flys carrying your car off......You haven't primed it yet have you....

i did prime part of it after hitting with this rust remover stuff i found at princess auto, then i washed that off and used a enamel reducer paint prep before spraying a few panels with spray cans but i'm going to be borrowing my buddies spray gun and picking up some better primer and starting again.

stripping is a lot of hard work and its very important to get the metal prep right ....using an epoxy primer is good insurance also wax & grease remover ...everything you need costs about 200.00 to get a professional quality job that will last....But for right now what you really need is a sawzall and a lot of blades ,I must have went through hundreds of blades and TWO sawzalls on my plymouth and I'm still cutting every day....
