Started sand blasting the under carriage and quickly realized that's a pain in the a$$ but didn't turn out to bad only found 2 rust holes on the driver side floor pan (so ill have to patch those after I rip the carpet out). so I went ahead taped the holes off for now and under coated the undercarriage with 3m rubberized undercoating it is a lot easier to remove if need be then the bed liner( done that before and its really hard to get off).
So far just moving along slowly ill have a lot more pics to come.

Youve got more ***** than me haha. Spiders are one thing I cant stand.

On a lighter note, looks like youve got a good bit of work ahead of you so I'll be watching

You might have just found a new home for them then.
Depends on logistics. I'm in Miami, where are you at, and where can we meet?

Hmmmm. Road trip!!!!!
I'll see about getting next weekend off, I think I've earned it.
And I'll slide the $50 at you for your project.
I wanna see it get done too.

*EDIT* I will be taking the entire last week of July off. I will definately come up to grab those from you.
PM me with contact info.
