Restoration isn't quite the term to use.
But in a way I am. I spent the day yesterday prepping the underbody for my POR-15 application today. For those that don't know, POR-15 is what Andrew (harofreak) used on his floor to stop the rust he had.
After a lot of brake clean and some scrubbing, I actually saw a lot of bare metal. Nice, clean, shiny steel uncovered with just degreaser. Not bad I thought! My front subframe was actually in great shape (it'* much better now). The back end was worse. I scraped away any loose rust from everywhere I was going to paint, sanded, cleaned, then went to town.
I covered basically everything from the lower radiator support all the way back (subframe, all control arms, tie rod ends, rear springs, all the wheel wells...). I used a large brush so it wouldn't take me all month, so some spots weren't perfect, but I wasn't too concerned. There were only a few key places I needed to get. The rest I did to make it look nicer for when mechanic Dan works on my car again.
This is a 12 beer job. Unfortunately I didn't have any.
Can anyone guess what else I upgraded from the pics?
