As a side question what do you use to strip the body/frame down? I was
thinking I would sand blast the frame, but can I rent/buy a sand blaster,
or should I have this done? Tell me what you've done.
(And yes, as you all can probably tell from the types of questions I ask,
I have never done any restoration to a car. A guy has to start
somewhere, and I love this car so I want to do it right.)
