it's all so pretty!
Nothing from 1980 without protection looks that nice around these parts.

That's why when I was car shopping (used) for a replacement for the high mileage car we had, I was shown a 2016 lease return that came out of Royal Oak, MI. I said it's off the list. Sales manager chuckled and said "I can tell  your from Michigan originally". 2+ years in salt is still bad news in my book.

Yesterday I removed a pile of undercoating.
It was hit and miss all under that area.
It was a half ass job at best.
More areas un coated than coated.

TY Darth & Larry.
It is indeed a solid car.
Here is some of the parts I have gathered for this build.
AHB wheels because it came with 14"

Factory Spoiler.
You can still see R/T under the black over spray.

I did find a template for drilling the holes in the correct spots.

  Couldn't get a pic of the whole thing at once because I had to hold it in place.

I thought I had a pic of the front spoiler from MAS industries.
Here is one of when I first brought it home.
I now have front door panels and rear side panels from up North where they don't get baked.
A pillar trim, sun visors, and arm rests.
I will post pics of those when I get to that point.

When I look at My Ms and Js I see solid under coating in the entire wheel well.
If these would have been that way I would have left them alone.
I don't know if they were running out at the time this car came down the line,
or just plain lazy and only there to collect a check and didn't give a damn.
We rarely have Ice down here so no need for the coating and wouldn't be driven in it if we did.

Rust Converter doing its job and turning metal black.
There will be a Rust proof primer on top of this and then paint same color as car.
