Why not, strip it, stitch weld and undercoat the thing like crazy, screw having another rusty car 5 years down the road.

We'll see. I'm all about not having a rusty car again but I don't think stitch welding will help it's going to get a hearty undercoating regardless

Got these in the mail today

Getting after it! I like the outdoor setup you have.

Finding any nasty surprises as the teardown progresses? Or has it been as clean as you expected?

I'm pretty happy with it. "EJ207" was my first choice but apparently it's taken.

Another update; moving right along. Tackled the center console and dash.

Bad, dark pic of the "before"


center console and lower dash gone


I have only removed and installed a 98-01 dash so this one took me a bit longer than I was hoping for, but its gone and hopefully will be sold at some point????


next will be the beam, hvac, wiring, steering column, etc

Pulled the beam, hvac, and bulkhead wiring loom last night. Had to drain coolant system in order to pull the hvac without making a mess so we ended up removing the radiator as well. Torque air box was also removed for access to the heater core hoses/clamps and parts of the bulkhead loom.

not sure whats up with the quality of the pics so I may update these
