I have since decided to stay with the blue interior. It is unique and looks really good when done right....

Cut out the front/rear floor pans. Also have everything removed/bagged/tagged except suspension/hood/column. Next up is trunk removal. I didn't mean to go this far......

I know the feeling. But just think how nice your car will be when you get done.

I just couldn't stop.....Here is the final damage. I cut out the trunk floor, floor pans, quarter extensions, quarter panels, rear filler panel, and tail panel. Every nut/bolt/removable item is off and I took the shell to get blasted this morning.

Sweet, I thought you said it was solid?
Glad I bought my car from Arizona.
Good luck with it, I hate body work.

It would have been a tough looking ride if I had just gotten it driving but there was too much I could not live with (rusty engine bay, rattles,etc) Once I started to dismantle I just figured I would do it all the right way.

It really was quite solid by Kansas standards-near pristine by Michigan standards (HA HA!). I could have gotten by with much less cutting. Also most of the rust you see is surface rust or in places you would never see (behind quarter panels, behind seam sealer, behind dash, bottom side of rear filler panel, around tail panel, etc). My camera is really cheap and likes to highlight/amplify rusty red colors. I just can't stand to do half baked projects if I can help it at all ($$$$$). It will be nice someday...

And no, I am not doing the welding. A friend of mine is a phenomenal fabricator and will be welding in all new AMD quarters, extensions, one piece trunk pan, all floor pans, gutters, rear filler panel, and tail panel.

Here was the car yesterday at 6:00 pm. I had picked the car up from the blaster's at 4pm, blown out all the aluminum oxide I could, then rolled it in for primer.
