Default Dustless stripping

I did dustless media. You will find all the imperfections, but best way to take it down. Will save many hours of sanding.

Here's my fun -

Note the rear end and then look at this thread, not for the squeamish.

a perfect front end is worth 2500 every day, fenders and front panel are worth the money, but rusty and previously wrecked bodies vary according to what is salvageable on the bodies, but the worst is that crushers pay probably 400 for the metal

All four fenders need work but the longs are rock solid. The hell hole needs a small patch.

A little more cleanup. The floor pics look much worse than the floors really are. Just surface rust. OTOH, the hell hole is a bit worse than I thought but still not a major issue. It will be an easy patch.

That is a great starting point in terms of metalwork, don't see any major rust repair maybe a couple days of work. It will be interesting to see how the body looks after blasting. Be sure to do some research on different companies for the blasting, some people don't know what they are doing and will warp those panels. plus its an early car to me that alone is worth more, would make a nice 914-6 replica!
Is it a 70 or 71?

by the little part of the back pad I can see, it is a 1970. 71 switched for that one year to naugahyde.

The back pad may have been re-done at some point. It is a 71.
If/when I have it blasted, it will be dustless blasting which uses water and keeps the heat down and doesn't warp metal.
