I've been doing a lot of little things that seem to add up...I can't get to step 'C' without first taking care of little steps 'A' & 'B'...Plus, it seems like the more I dive in the more I see to do!
My focus right now is rust & sealing the outside, then cleaning & degreasing the inside ceilings, walls, and subfloor areas...sealing & prepping the inside after I get that done.
Bought a new drill & impact drill combo. Regular drill has made scraping the paint & rust out of the gutters go smoothly.
Used some Por Patch to fill a couple small holes in the rear. Good stuff. Used it to flesh out & add body to one area that was getting thinned by rust. It seems solid as a rock & really attaches itself to the metal.
There's a couple goats on the property that I'm doing the renovation, and they got into my box of Por15 stuff, chewed on the tube some but thankfully didn't eat any!
I've been mainly focusing on the non-glamorous & time consuming aspects of cleaning 41 years of accumulated dust & dirt from everywhere, finding & grinding out rusted spots inside & out (and have a ways to go just in those areas!) and treating them with Por15.
Otherwise, nothing drastically crazy happening structurally or really visually too much. I feel like I'm in that period where I'm "building the foundation" properly, trying to ensure that I do it right the first time, at least as right as I'm aware.
I've never done anything like this before, haven't even restored a car before, so I'm learning & most definitely open to admitting I don't have all the answers. Thanks to all of you who have been documenting your own conversion journeys, I'll hopefully be able to keep the mistakes to a minimum and the inspiration to a maximum because of you! ;)
