A carpet replacement and what followed....

Postby goldenolds on Sun Feb 22, 2009 12:39 pm

Here is the story of my car.
It began with a car that was almost original exept motor and transmission.
Image
We (me and my wife) drove it one summer long and in the wintertime we decided to replace the carpet and some small other things.
That was the beginning of a two year restoration. :roll:
Under the carpet we found many rust.

Image

Image

Image

but only a small piece was in such bad shape that we had to replace it.

Image

There was rust in the trunk too. I removed all the rust and painted it with anti-rust paint.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Then I sealed all edges and painted the interior black.

Image

Image

Image

In the meantime I began to remove all the chrome and the paint from the body.... it was really hard work :x

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

I also worked on the underside.....

Image

Image

Thats me........ 8)

Image

I think the hardest part of the work was to remove the paint.....

Image

Image

Image

At the end of this, the car looked like it came out of a mad-max movie :mrgreen:

Great job!! I know that feeling...that looks pretty similar to what I ended up doing with my car. I took a bunch of pictures of it, but I still haven't gotten around to scanning them. One of these days soon, I hope. Great job though...I know just how much work that was :mrgreen: .
