Well tonight's task was to remove the bottom detail of the lift gate and sandblast the remaining structure in prep for epoxy primer. The lower edge did have a flange folded up, so a slit was cut along the edge and the door skin vise grips were put to use... Next, the spot welds inside were ground out..... Media blasting..... nice to finally see through the glass! The media blasting revealed a few more holes, and numerous pits, many of them close to breaking through. With all the other new metal going in the bottom, there's only one thing to do. Using the tipping wheel.......... Comparing to the pitted version..... Next we'll need to do some corking to add the trim hole pad details.
