I've decided to combine all my future projects into one thread.  So here goes...

Today took on an early 80s that has a variety of problem areas.  I use to own this car about 10 years ago.

How do you like the new welder, now that you've had a chance to work with it?

It's great, easier to weld and cleaner welds.  Took me a trial period to get a regulator that worked properly.  I need an extension on my chord to reach the very far end, but that's not a big issue really.

Is the entire front end on, or just sitting in place? If its on, I don't know how you do it

That's just the first trial fitment.  I'll paint the backside off the car, then reinstall.

How's life on Sandy Beach?  Any sandcastles yet?

Haven't had to sandblast in awhile. 

Tore into the cill on a car today.  3 or 4 layers of metal.  What could have been good floors turned into ruined floors with an overcill and then extended metal for absolutely no reason.  Trapped water and this is the end result. 

Pic of the paint booth put to use.

Shame about the cills. Scary how much is hidden from the eye.
Paint booth looks great though, no more flies on fresh paint I'm guessing!

More rust = more money  ;D.

Less risk for bugs but primarily keeps my shop clean from overspray.  No more hanging plastic over 6 cars.

Rear subframe and floor pan reconstruction.  I mounted a bare subframe to properly align the section of subframe attach panel.

Is this Patton's car or Rusty the Clubby?
