More blasting tomorrow then time to get busy on the sheet metal work.... Arizona is wonderful, it can be like this for months and not get any indications of flash rust.
Yea we grew up in he Oneonta, NY area, I would never start with a car from anywhere but the desert SW. This is mostly a typical Arizona car but I am blown away I to cut this much away. The design of this sheet metal promotes rust. I have zero love for metal work.I'm blown away how good metal is. I'm from Ew York & remember winter salt buildup so thick that i'd hear door rub fender when opening it. You do great work in great time!
Like I said this is the norm here, very typical for a car that has lived its life in Arizona. The only rust is where the desert silt gets trapped, builds up and stays wet forever if the car is driving daily.Amazed how rust free it is. Great find great job.
Where was that GTX from? Have you tried calling these guys and see if you can get it without shipping if it is part of a normal order? I was thinking about that if I needed bigger parts. They are an AMD dealer.Getting her done!
I ordered the drip rails for my '68 GTX. Wanted to get the roof skin, floor pan and trunk floor too so I could combine freight charges but the cost was approaching $2000 and just before Christmas it seemed too much.
