I’m thinking I should get the car completely blasted including undercarriage to get rid of all the rust and grim so I can see exactly what I’m working with. But since I need to have the car primed shortly after it’s blasted, should I have the pans put in first? If I had the money, I would do it all at one type, but I’m assuming that will be a big job and cost a pretty penny!!
You can go either way,, I would put the pan in first,,,, As far as soda blasting,,,, That ******* is a mess... I did one car that was soda blasted,,, It came to me a big mess,, Not sure if someone didn't finish the job are what... But never again,,, Just look into it before jumping in with both feet,,, I would just replace what needs to be done first..
But then again if you blast it first,, You may need to change more..
