Oh this car is a real beauty.

If I can humbly say that instead of sanding or sand blasting the interior
floorboards just brush them down with some naval jelly. It's a rust converter that
turns the rust into a hard compound and it will never rust again and you can
paint right over the jelly once it dries.

It will save tons of time and money. Also, if you put steel exhausts back on it
once surface rust forms treat it with the naval jelly and it will turn your exhaust pipes
a nice primer colored black. Not to mention it will make your pipes last forever.

goodluck

Yeah, I've used some phosphoric acid here and there. The surface it leaves behind is so hard that some paints don't stick to it very well. I used it on my floor pans and the epoxy primer I painted over it peeled off. I am going to repaint with an old fashioned oil based enamel and hope that works better.

Most people (in person) think that I am taller than I actually am. When I tell people I am 6-1 (when they ask, of course), they usually tell me they thought I was 6-3 or so. Not sure why that is. Maybe because most guys exaggerate their height, or maybe my proportions give the illusion of greater height or...I don't know.

Time for a little update.

Got the front and rear suspensions back together. Everything new: ball joints, bushings, shocks, rear leaf springs and bolts.
Also got the Wilwood brakes installed. The Wilwood kit was for a 60's Mopar, so I jad to make some modifications to make it fit, but it was a lot easier than I thought it was going to be to make the conversion.

If you ever get this one finished I'm sure one of the ~10 veteran car magazines in Sweden would love to fly over and write an article about it.
Yup had some buddies back in school who recondishioned old veterans, they even shipped some over stateside.

Painted the roof and jambs/firewall. Lots of bodywork to do before I paint the rest, however.
