Looking good! Been there, done that snowball garbage! What started off as a quick suspension upgrade turned into a 8+ year body off resto!
It needed upper,lower bushings, upper, lower ball joints ,shocks, springs. The heater box seal was leaking so might as well change that.

Went to Eastwood today and picked up this hope it works to do the core support and if it does maybe start blasting the car one panel at a time. It's a 78 dollar gamble. I called a shop that does blasting they wanted 1k to do the outside of the car or 1200 they come to you.

Well I have to say the Eastwood water sand blaster worked great was very happy how it worked only one down fall you do get wet. As long as your pressure washer meet the requirements you should not have any problems. I did use one 50lbs bag of sand for one core support and a brake booster. But you better have something to stop the flash rust once your done.

Any photos of the parts right after you finished blasting them?
No I didn't get any I was to wet but once I get the car on all 4 I'm gonna try to do the car to see how it handles 3 layers of paint.

Woke up at 130am this morning after tossing and turning for 30mins said screw it I'm up and went out to the garage and just put the control arms on set the core support in place and set the heater box in just to see how it would look. So far I'm happy how the engine bay has turned out
