Blasting

I need a little advice from the body experts out there. I have my í68 Mustang stripped down. The trunk pan is completely rusted out, I see a few pin holes in the driver-side floor plan, and the bottom of the rear panel is rusted out. So, Iím going to just going to replace the complete floor and trunk pan. The question I have is about soda blasting. Iím 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 Iím working with. But since I need to have the car primed shortly after itís blasted, should I have the pans put in first? If I had the money, I would do it all at one type, but Iím 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..

Soda Blasting will not remove rust. It works well with removing paint, but not rust.

You don't necessarily have to prime it . If the car is to be indoors just wipe it down with a good quality metal prep and will stay rust free in the garage for a year. Be sure that the prep you use leaves a zinc phosphate film
