Thanks. I want to get started on the car, so should I remove the interrior and ***** the damage? I was told by a professional to start from the inside, out.

Edit: I also want to mention that the chevelle we did, we got a little carried away and stripped the car completely and THEN did it piece by piece.

Get a 55 gallon drum of POR15. That's all you will need!

I bookmarked your website to keep up with your progress. Take lots of pictures.
Good luck Sam.

Let me say from some limited experience that some patching one the floor will turn into more patching than you planned. It's not fatal that's for sure, but once the wire wheel hits the metal you may be surprised at how much rust you really have before you get to clean metal. New pans are probably easier than making patches for the floor, especially because they are available retail.

Good luck man. Don't get discouraged I can't see what it looks like underneath very well, but as long as it has a good solid frame you should be able to do it. And now that is not even a requirement anymore, as you can actually buy parts for the unibody frames now for alot of models.

Have fun, you will learn more than you imagined doing this.
