We knew the quarters were rotted beyond repair, so some large sections were trimmed out to give better access to the inner structure. The body was going to the media blaster, and it is faster and easier for the blaster to clean the structure with “windows” in the quarter areas.
The GS hood came back pretty solid, but with some dents in the outside skin. Not a big deal to fix.
We didn’t allow the media blaster to strip the hood skin, as we like to do these with a dual action (D/A) sander to prevent warpage.
The door shells showed some rot in the structure…
…and also in the skins.
