done for the day. still have sanding left to do, but i was done with it for today





but heres the problem i want to paint the other side of the fender, but with all the angles idk how to prep it for paint. i need to clean it up. i dont have access to a sand blaster, do u guys think a pressure washer would work to clean it up enough. if not what would work on this??

well its been a month, and i went backwards. replaced headders with better headman long tubes, ceramic coated. have one on and waiting for a dipstick to put on the other side. all the primering and sanding i did i decided to strip. i want to go down to the baremetal so i just decided to restart on those. i went to bare metal so that i can shave the body line. drivers side is all bare metal. passenger about half done, started going around to body shops for quotes on the rust, and started finishing my back garage, aka shop. ill have some pics up in a bit.
