Spent Saturday on the sandblaster. It went alright but definately need a bigger compressor to make the job easier. Got the inside of the engine bay and rad support all blasted and then hit them with a coat of intergard. Didn't bother balsting the front aprons on either side as they both need replacing. Nice to see some good steel get sealed up and safe from the dreaded rust.

Car went from this

to this

and finally this



So not a bad day and now she is locked away looking over this view

Took her down to my parents farm. 120 acres of space and no neighbors to complain about the noise or dust.

Just thought I would throw up a few more pics as I make progress with the sandblasting. Nothing too exciting but what the hey, everyone likes pictures. And someone might pick up on something i have missed in terms of areas that will need repair down the track.
The dash nearly all blasted


And then with a coat of paint



I've blasted both sides of engine bay etc, but here's one

After


Didn't get a before of the firewall but here it is finished.

A few holes in the toeboards on both sides. LH side one needs replaceing and probably the RH side is past saving also.

The last 2 photos are of the RH inner rail where it meets the floor. The floor is clearly stuffed but is it going to be a case of also cutting that section of rail out and welding in a new piece or is there still enough strength and metal to just weld up the 2 holes and some of the pitting?

Hey Tim, nice update... gotta love it when you start blasting and priming. Looks great and a good feeling too. You have some obvious work to do on your cowl there - how does the lower cowl look from under the dash?

WRT your rockers, in my relatively short amount of experience, if you can see that much on the outside of the inner rocker then it is likely to be much worse on the inside. I replaced inner and outer rockers on both sides of my project because it was clearly evident that it was REALLY BAD however in your case if that is pretty much all of it then I would start by cutting horizontally about halfway up the height of that rocker taking out a section an inch or so clear of the obvious rust then take a bo peep inside to see if you need to either A) section out some more or B) replace the whole rocker. I would go for patching if that is about the extent of it.

Good work...

Tim give the rail a wack with a hammer, if it folds easy replace it otherwise just weld it. I believe the rails were galvanised and that rust looks to be from the floor out so you should be good.
