Work has begun...Topcat
« on: October 21, 2006 - 08:34:38 pm »
Now that my compressor issue is done, I was able to finally do some rust removal. I started sanding the rust from the floor boards and inside of the roof. The floors look to be in fantastic condition. The roof has a lot of rust up above. It seems that the glue they used for the overhead console tends to fossilize the rust making it a real pain to grind away.

   Later on, I went to the auto parts store and I ran into this guy who worked there that told me I could get a rotisserie built for $900. for me. I'll be following up on him. He had a real nice Plum Crazy A body Barracuda there.
