I finished getting most of the under coating and most of the surface rust off from around the areas where the trunk will be welded in.

After playing with that mess, I've decided to get the whole body chemically stripped.

Today I worked on The Gran Sport and after 44 hours on the car it's ready for prime. Today I burned out the lead seams and plug welded the flange to strengthen it and mudded it. It was pretty annoying to do all this with the decklid on and trying to keep it clean. The quarter jambs will be have to be spotted in but I did a good job at keeping the repair clean and no rouge scratches on the decklid or jambs. Also went over the 320 block scratches with some soft pad DA/500 scratches. Should be a little straighter than last time I just hope the darn painter doesn't leave it full of urethane wave.

Cool seeing you guys getting something done on your projects. I didn't get out there, just dog tired. We are short at work and after 9 hours I swear I got NOTHING done, how can that be?

Just plain old cold rolled steel on the east end of the country also. I hit all the pieces with an orbital sander and 80 grit so they would be ready to prime without much work.
Some spots, I used a buff with a crispy compound on it which gives it a grained look.
I found a bunch of pinholes under the black stuff I lifted off on one door. Sanding didn't show the holes, but as soon as I went back over it with the stripper they popped out. Now I get do some metal work, thank goodness! I seem to be gifted at welding and fabbing *little* pieces. I am not read to do a John or Pugs act yet. But I like metal work. And I gave up ever parking anything but the 53 on the left side my garage. Forever. So I take my time now.

little pieces are just as hard. the big pieces are just an illusion, but Pugs is on a whole other level.

I saw on the news that you had snow on your end of the state,up here all the snow has turned to solid ice it is only 10 degrees so it might be here a while,
and NO snow plows running,cant get up the mountian.

You have snow plows up there ?????? They should have drove the plows up the mountain the day before, coming down is easy.

Yea you are right ,the problem the plows have up here is all the traffic stalled and blocking the roads where plows cant run and clear the roads,

This was a pretty easy snow to drive in. It was a white powdery snow that I could get traction on. Most of the time when it snows this far south the ground is warm enough that the snow starts out melting and then freezes as the temperature drops which leaves you with a sheet of black ice that is impossible to drive on. Yesterday it was so cold the snow just packed into a white crusty surface.

The last time I went to Detroit they had a 9 inch snow that was easier to drive on than most of our 3 inch snows.

I feel for you folks in the South that have the cold and snow. We had a bit (2-3") the other day and it never even made the paper and all the TV weather said is we would have flurries and some wind and be below zero (F).

Of course, that cold and snow means I can stay in my shop and work some more on my car or (gasp) finish some honey-do's
