    Worked my butt off this weekend to get to this point, finally after a whole day of prepping and dealing with a bunch of must do small things for this to happen, 2k urethane primer finally sprayed, and very happy how it turned out. If you are not sure if your body work has been done good the primer will definitely show you where you need to touch up, but that is ok, better to fix now before the last stage. Any way here are some pics,

    A couple more picks of the second set of panels, not enough room in the booth for everything,

    that's the plan I hope, first is to try and get the chassis and drive train power washed, hope the weather will hold out for a bit.

    Well the weather held out for me this weekend, so I couldn't wait to attack the frame, first I had remove the wiring harness for the motor then I had to scrap off what I could of 40+ years of grease mainly around motor area and front suspension, had to do this over a tarp in the shop. Then I had to get it outside with a little help from my lawn tractor. I used every type of degeaser I had available and let it soak for a while. Hit it at high pressure with the power washer and watched the grease fly off in every direction most of it was to my direction.
    The frame and motor didn't come out to bad, you can actually see the colours and hidden silicone around the back of the valve covers. Now I have to decide how I want to deal with the surface rust on the rest of the frame once I pull the motor and tranny out.
    Here are some before and after.

    The tarp wasn't white once I finished with the power washer.
