Not to nit-pick, but those rear shackles are on backwards :)

What's your preferred method for stripping Kelly? Shirt first or pants? :p

Seriously though, looks like a paint stripping product, along with scraping, then finishing out with a contour-sct type tool. That about right?
😅😂

You are pretty much correct! I try several types of stripper, figure out what works on each vehicle, then apply about 3 different coats and scrape in between coats too, covering it in plastic each time so it doesn’t dry out. Then final scrape, and finally the Contour sander. Funny is that the Citrus Strip works really well sometimes. In the old days, back when Methylene Chloride was in stripper, you could apply it on a vertical surface and watch it roll off on the ground leaving bare metal. Scary stuff.

Let the B29 Superfortress comments begin........ NOW.

Today the roof was sanded and all the other areas of the body that were not completely sanded were also done today. The lower door skins were cut off, once again exposing the active rust hiding in these doors. There is not any rebuilding necessary on these doors, but they needed to be replaced for sure. The A pillar gutters were also removed, the passenger side was really bad. There will be a sand blasting day soon and we will clean up all the door jambs, surface rust in the gutters and other places.

Taller still with no weight in it. I drove my truck into the garage, and after disassembly, I had to weigh the rear end down with people to be able to roll it out, because of how much taller it was.
