I finally got the Mite back from
The Stripping Shop
and it looks great:
|The guys at the stripping shop did a great job using plastic media to blast the paint off of all the outside and inside surfaces. The body was remarkably straight underneath the paint. i suppose i could have used a Soda Blaster and done it myself, but it was much easier and cleaner to have a pro do it.|
|They even got inside the doors (mostly) and in all the recessed areas under the dash and on the floors. They used plastic media to keep the metal from warping.|
|I've removed and filled the door handles.|
|Here's a good look down the side showing just how straight and rust-free this car was.|
|The original body seams were lead filled, you can easily see the lead filler in this picture|
|Under the boot is nice and clean, free of paint and of grease.|
|The cross member, radiator mounts and front suspension mounts are nice and clean|
This little gecko was hiding under some scrap metal when I went out to take these pictures.
A nicer surprise than a scorpion!
