Doors off. 4 Bolts on driver side stripped so will need 4 more. I got then out with bolt extractors.
Rub strip holes welded.
Front bumper stripped.
Door sills removed. BROKE all the clips. I hope they are replaceable. Sanded and fixed rust on sills.
Driver door stripped of all seals and trim except metal trim in one of the pics. HOW DOES THAT COME OFF?

PIC on TOS.

Thanks

TOS is "The other site".

Not sure if this will work but...

Some updates...just paid my membership so I can post pics again.

I'm ready for primer!....but then I needed a paint gun. After MUCH reading and talking to some shop guys I realized my compressor was not going to do the job. I had a 15 Gal DeWalt with a 5.4 CFM at 90 PSI.....I found NO info at all telling me I could expect to paint a car without running into drying problems....so Craigslist here I come.
As you probably know I have NO money to waste. ( out of work for a year now ) I found this.
A Harbor Freight US General 60 Gal 5 HP 2 stage compressor that puts out 15 + CFM at 90 PSI.....A guy is moving back to Florida and did not want to take it with him. He wanted a smaller one sooooo I traded mine for his plus $200.

I plan on changing oil in it Sunday and the air filter. The guy has it wired to plug into a dryer outlet. It looks like it works fine that way so for now that will be fine.....I guess.

This is closer to where the car is now. EVERYTHING is disassembled. Fenders, bumpers, hood, deck,...
The sanding is finished for now but here are some pics.

Great progress Dean! I'd just shoot clear over those beautiful prepped panels.

That's awesome. You did so much more prep work than I. I didn't remove anything and all the sanding I did was by hand!

Your finished product is going to be awesome.
