  • Doing the Body-off thing...cont'd.

    Backaches notwithstanding, this is the only way to get old undercoating off a body!



    I've found lots of rust pockets where the coating wasn't thick enough or became un-stuck over the years. I suppose I'll be glad I did this, but it sure is a big chore.
    Will go over it with sandpaper or a wire wheel in the tight spots, repair the rust, repaint, re-undercoat and while it's drying, work on the frame.
    It's a great way to lose weight and stay out of the wife's way!

                And yes Tom, I also always ......while she is taking off the body. She says it is so much easier to work on Hawks that way!

                    HA! Good move, I agree!
                    Media blasting's a good idea. Messy and gets into every crevice, but effective. Where the undercoat won't chip off I'll use my propane and putty knife.

                        Looking good, Tom!!

                        Yes, propane torch and a putty knife work great on that.
