Waazzuupp! Well more progress today.No more suprises!! SO FAR! Just a short more stripping and it will be all bones for the Stang.Got glass,tank,headliner and that will be it.Probabley start scraping in the next 2 days.Got the wiring out and the dash. Taking her all the way to the firewall
on the inside.The 65 has drawn blood so I know it's got a serious problem with all this.But hey it will be Beauitful when done.
By the way I was told to warm up the undercoating with a torch then scrape it.
Any body ever go that way? I was planning on some HEAVY CHEMICALS. !! No-- I mean the Car! But after what I've seen I think maybe that has been the case in the past Fixin Up"episodes it has experienced.
Anyway things going to plan. Everything is bagged and tagged. Steve"The Desertrat"

Do you like to be covered in "HEAVY CHEMICALS"? If no, use a torch and a scrapper.

I`ve used a Bernzomatic Butane torch before, along with a putty scraper, steel wool, & laquer thinner. Heat up a small area at a time,just enough to soften the tar (it turns shiny & wet), scrape it, & with the area still warm, dip the steel wool in the laquer thinner & remove the residue. Keep the torch away from the laquer thinner, VERY flammable!!!. Also wear gloves, eye protection, & do it in a well ventilated area. You WILL get dirty & stinky, but it will be worth it. It will also take much longer than you think it will! Have fun!!
