                    This car was very heavily undercoated, that was both a help and a hindrance. It helped because in areas where the undercoating was still attached we used a heat gun to soften the undercoating and it scrapped right off. In areas where it started peeling it trapped dirt and water causing the floors to rust out in areas. Those areas were also heated but to remove the rust we used a crud thug from Snap On. it has a rotary wheel with curved wires that will remove undercoat, seam sealer, rust, and previous body filler. The replacement wheels are about 35.00 from the tool man, but what a job it does.
