Fabrication - Soda/Glass blasting

And now a "picture dump" about the blasting outcome.

The car was blasted with soda and glass and took 21 hours. Almost half of this time was spent by working with the underside, because the rust proofing was so tough and did not budge easily.
Doors and tail lid took 3 hours each so it took its time!

Well packaged because of the looming rain and wet road surface. The tarp did not let any water through. I might say that I was very pleased.












Not many holes were uncovered but quite a few patches... Need to sort those out! Also some caulking and silicone was left behind but not a huge problem!

I'm pondering if the metal could be left as is and just sprayed with clear coat... Then I would paint a Pin-Up to the doors and call the car Zero. Just a thought...

One last photo to show our "shop dog" Kähmy in training or better yet travelling:
