    That's a lot faster than my blaster machine.

      Thanks for the link! With the water and abrasive it’s not suppose to warp sheet metal. You also can add a chemical to not flash rust!

        Picking up where Dad left off
        by Brent
        So, I've gotten the sheet metal including the doors, cowl, hood, etc. fitting pretty well. In general, I believe the sheet metal is in pretty good shape. Part of the car has been painted black lacquer and part of it is in spotty primer and filler...this was done probably 20 years ago by my dad. As I pick up the body work again, I was hoping for some help with my plan of attack.

        Metal splinters
        by carolinamudwalker
        I am very well acquainted with wood and fiberglass splinters but new to metal splinters, or do you call them shards! How do you avoid or remove them when you cant even see them? I am afraid of setting off the metal detector at the airport....

        Update on Rust! 8/30
        by Mickey
        Starting to get into my new coupe and while I knew there was some rust things get more difficult when you actually see it. Both rear corners are going to need some serious work. My problem is how to handle it. Cost is of course an issue, as always, but so is space, equipment, ability and knowhow. I'm a one man "shop" with a two car garage. But I think I can make that work. The biggest issue...

        Daily Body and Paint (P&B) Tips, a series
        by tbirdtbird
        TIP #1

        Want to try your hand at body work?

        It is important to have a solid metal base under any bondo (plastic) that you use. We have seen gum wrappers, window screen, styrofoam cups, wooden sticks, and what have you underneath plastic filler. Your car deserves better! This is the first tip in a series.

        Some expert advice please
        by Mikey
        I'm new to this forums thing and even newer to the Model A hobby (obsession). My father in law has his first car, a 29 roadster that he also learned how to drive in, he also has a 31 deluxe roadster that has been in in the barn since 64 ish that is in hundreds of parts. Do to personal and financial reasons he needed to unload the 31. To help him out, I found a buyer but when it came time, he would...

        Seeking Advice: Paint and Rust Issues
        by cpf240
        My father bought this '29 Special Coupe back in '78. It was in typical barn find condition. At that time, a restoration was started, but never finished. From '80 or so onward, it sat in two different garages, one in Santa Monica, and then sat outside under a tarp in Costa Mesa for several years. So, it has had some salt air exposure.

        My father didn't do the work himself, but my grandfather...

        Vicky find at PATE
        by Jwmckenzie
        We found a very nice Victoria Body at The Pate Swap Meet. Here is a pic of the floor pan, as an example of how rust free this body is. My brother has been wanting a Vicky for several years, now he is the proud owner.

        No patch panels needed in the rear wheel wells, lower body or back. Will need some work on the bottom of the cowl section, but the rest is a nice as I have seen.

        Seat Belts AGAIN!
        by Corley
        Been looking at old posts on installing seat belts, and just can't make up my mind. Wondering what this particular crowd has to say on the subject, as this crowd is probably less emotional and more practical than some other crowds. But I should state at the outset, I believe in seat belts, and always use them in my more modern vehicles. I'm definitely NOT interested in shoulder belts or a harness...
