Hello everyvone.

English is not my strong side,but i will try.

I buy a Chevy Bel Air 1955 last year,and i plan to restore it from the ground.
i did not think it was to mutch rust, becasue the ad said that the car was streight as an arrow,but when i begin to take it appart it was rust everywere
Both rear fenders,floorpans,rear of the trunk,rockerpanels and all the braces under the car. So i have to learn howe to do metalwork.
When i had taken the car appart i decide to let a company take all paint and plastic away with acid, they dipped the body and all other parts in a big container full of acid, i can tell it was very clean when it came up.
So now im starting to welding.
I have a blog where you can follow the process, but its in not in English yet.

Best Regards
Owe Hellberg

Welcome to the site Owe. Straight as an arrow in this case definitely doesn`t mean rust free. It is hard to buy a car without looking it over real good. Good luck on your rebuild.
