My phone died so I had to get creative. Went over about noon today and sheeted it up to keep some of the dust off of it. Then it was time for work.

I can't stress enough how much I've been dreading this task. Nothing about it is enjoyable to me. Nothing.

I stripped the brake and clutch master and a couple small items off the firewall. Then I sanded down a portion of the lower valance and some of the inner fenders. After that, I started slinging mud, sand, mud, repeat.

It was just after this that my phone really started acting up.


When the shift was over it didn't look much different but I'd glazed the valance and primed it along with glazing the inner fenders. By that time I was just over it. Went home and pulled weeds.

Not sure when I'll get back over there but I have very little time in the next few weeks. At this rate summer will be over before it's ready for the market. I'd love to find the ******* who spray bombed under the hood and kick them square in the yam bag.
At least he didn't brush it with Rustoleum, like me.

It's just as bad. Super thick with a combo of orange peel and runs. Plus the genius thought everything needed to be coated, so now I get clean up brake lines, etc too.
If you ever wondered about why I decided to go with the Mach 1 hood blackout, it's because the same ******* decided that smearing Bondo on the hood and top of the driver's fender looked better than the dings that were there. Didn't even bother to sand or prime. Just smeared Bondo over the dings and left it.
If you remember, I bought this one at a tow yard auction. I got a call from the owner when I listed my blue wagon on CL. He had actually owned both cars at one time and described some specific identifiers to each one. There were a couple owners between him and me for each wagon. He described this one as being pretty unmolested and nice when he sold it and he knew the guy he sold it to. it was the guy right before me who screwed it all up.

Just got all caught up on your wagon re-vamp... somehow I missed it until now!
Looks great!
Though I'd much rather clean up an engine compartment, versus the suspension overhaul that I've been putting off lol
