Restorations / Re: Getting at the rust in an E-Type -- UPDATED 10-8
« Last post by goodfellow on October 15, 2011, 03:45:51 PM »
I'm almost done with finding and cutting out all the rust in this car body --- just a few more days to go and I'm ready to media blast the entire thing.

First thing I did this morning was cut out a section of the driver's side crossmember to expose the rust. This side isn't nearly as bad as the passenger side, so the surgery will be much less invasive. All that was needed was to cut a small section and expose the spot welds underneath. Once drilled, they came up very easy --





I ran out of my stash of Norton cutting wheels and had to resort to some HF brand Russian made disks. I wasn't expecting much, but they worked quite well. Until I can get some Norton's ordered, these will do just fine.





The entire passenger side rocker was removed and surprisingly, not much rot was in there. Even the front rocker stiffener was in fairly good shape,





The lower frame mount was also good to go. In the end, I only cut out a small section of the lower rocker bulkhead. Almost done wth this thing. Only items left to do are the rear wheel arches and that will happen next week.



Onward -- things are coming together.

Wow, now that sound usefull especially on a rusty old Ford or Chrysler. Does anyone have any experience with them?

I have never used on myself, but I did see a live demo about a year or so ago.

I was very impressed! from what I saw it worked extremely well

This big boy eastern diamond back was captured this week by some folks I know who live in the eastern part of the state (NC) . For some reason they didnt kill it and I think holding it up alive on that stick was crazy.
