Scraped The Vehicle

Posted on: Monday December 25, 2017

Unfortunately this car was rear ended while transporting it from PA to TX. Totaled. I salvaged all new parts and looked on line for a new one. Located an orange rust free '79 in Michigan that was actually an AZ car recently bought in a charity raffel. Transfering new parts to the '79.

Converting Front Clip

I cut off the front clip to convert it to the earlier bolt on version. I also cut off the left rocker panned to see if the inner structure is rusted. No inner rust beyond surface rust. Yeaaa! My future engineer daughter cutting out the cancer!

Started On Recovering The Paint Job.

I got my Midget into a new garage and decided to see if the paint job could be salvaged. I scrubbed with rubbing compound followed by 3 coats of Mother's Synthetic Wax. The initial results look pretty good. I also scrubbed the cabin and coated all the raw metal with Por15. When it dries I am covering everything in rubberized spray to seal all the seams and make a solid bed liner.
