Here’s the car as she rolled up


First we broke everything down and got to sanding!


Took it all the way down to metal to find any pesky rust to repair.


This car was in great shape however we did find some rust.


We replaced the bottom of the door skin here.


Came out looking brand new!


We also had to take care of some floor pans.


Then we got into priming and sanding.


Here is the hood and front quarter panels ready to go.


Then we moved on to prepping the rest of the vehicle.


All primed up and ready for our next move!


Similar to what we are hoping for in the finished look
