Got in a couple hours of sanding after work tonight. Got the roof completely stripped and a little of the C-Pillar done. Was nice and cool out with a refreshing breeze, big change in the weather since the heat wave over the past month.
glad to hear you didn't try that last week.

at first I thought you fat-fingered and meant 300k miles and was wondering why you were whining about it. then a quick glance to the left shows you are in Canada....

Watched it get dusty while I have had to deal with other intruding and conflicting priorities that have had keyboard time elsewhere on the board. Still one pipe short of an exhaust system as one of the post muffler dumps has yet to be wire wheeled back to clean metal. Thing about that is that I have to restock some more wire cup wheels; they ought to come with a warning, "this is a wear component which will start to shed wires without warning and make its user look like a pincushion or resemble a porky-pine". if the wires would shed evenly then I might get more use but they seem to all fall out in the same 90 degree location on the rim of the cup and leave it bare but stay mostly everywhere else. Doesn't matter whose brand, or source, domestic or off-shore, they all give up way too fast.

The twisted wire ones are a lot better about even wear and a little better about the wire shards.

Tackling the floor pans this week but I've gotten new patches fabbed up a little more every night after work. Ended last night with the braces mocked up. Not a sheet metal guy by any means just sealing up the holes lol
