I cant wait to show you the wheels that will be going on it!!
Then don't. Show us.
I will...as soon as I clean them up and get tires on them. Think ultra traditional Japanese wheel, haha
Wow, that is gorgeous. Real shame that Altima hit you... I have always loved the flat side Starion. Not many around anymore. I'll be watching this thread for sure.
Thanks, tons of updates to come for sure.
Project is in full swing now, since the rust started from the inside out, the first step is to remove the outside for access.
Outer skin removed....
Next level down...
Scary looking but its all for the greater good!
You can see in this next picture were the majority of the rust is, between the pinch weld and the floor. Looking down from the interior here.....
And up from the undercarrige here....
Other than that small spot on the frame rail, which of course will also be addressed the floor and underside are in amazing shape for a northeast car.
On the passengers side quarter panel a large area of surface has been peeking through the paint for a while. To save from any future surprises we decided to grind down the paint and see what was there...
Uh-oh is that bondo showing up?!
After a lot more grinding it seems the panel is in fairly good shape. Must have been hit at some point but the bondo was only a skim coat, decent repair was done but I HATE seeing holes drilled to pull a dent!!! Those will have to be welded up before we get to the final body work stage!
Covered in SEM rust-mort, this stuff is amazing! Literally turns rust back into shiny metal, I will have to do a before and after shot somewhere on the car. Amazing stuff!
