This reminds me of an incident years ago.
There used to be a place in Atlanta called "UnPaint". I always took inner fenders, hinges, etc to strip because of the difficulty to clean. They could emerse an entire car and one time there was a car in the rinsing booth and it looked like someone shot a couple of boxes of 12 gauge #6 at it.
I'm sure when the owner showed up he lost his lunch.

SORRY--to dissapoint you -but-if it takes you $30,000 in PARTS to redo a TANG[ or any complete cars from those years]-then you need to look around for a different parts supllier!!!! ops: ops: i have done over 25 of these and NEVER put that kind of money in one :idea:

ALSO-THE CAR LOOKS ROUGH BUT ALOT OF THAT IS RED PRIMER UNDER THE PAINT NOT RUST :? :?
NOT RANTING JUST VENTING :shock: :shock:
