OK so I've never painted a car like this so I been watching you tube to see how to get the best results without spending the rest of my life doing prep work. One panel at a time...... so OFF with the doors, hood and trunk lid.

Worked on the hood a little before I painted the second tractor cover.... I'd like to punch the ass that sprayed the under side of the hood with undercoating. cant just sand that crap off or blast it off.. lots of scraping & I'm finding rust that should have been treaded not just covered.

Now THAT is some nasty stuff to remove. --- will a rag soaked in gas help soften any of it? --- Heat with small torch followed by rag? ---just thinking here!

I have actually been fairly lucky the biggest part of the hood on the sheet metal part it was kind of hard probably cook from the engine heat so most of that came off without too much fuss. it's the frame around the outside that that craps sticking to terrible and of course all the irregular shaped I can't get in there with anything neat it's a pain in the butt
