Just got a 1972 GTO project car. There's some minor rust but I'm sure that it's fixable. Now, to have everyone start laughing at me. I would like to say that I don't know anything about car and I learn something from this experience (never buy a project car). I already bought the car and I can't take it back. I just want to get this car on the road and I know I will be needing alot of $$$$$. I'll try to post pictures later. Hopefully you experts can give me advices until the car is done (hopefully within 3-4 years). I won't be getting help from my pops because he decided to bail
. It's all good! Thanks pops!
Here's my plan. Let me know if I should change anything.
-attached all the doors, fender, hood in the car
-then I will sand the rusts in the body.
-Have some expert help me put bondo on the body after.
-Have the engine rebuilt
-Have the car wired
-get the interior done
Sounds easy enough? I think not! everytime I type what I gotta do. My mind keep making the "cha-ching" sound.
I will post pictures later and I will post pictures of my progress.
-what kind/type of sand paper should I buy to get the paint off on the rust? Also, the top of my car is not smooth. It used to be a vynil top but the last owner decided to rip it off because he wanted to make the car look solid. I will be hand-sanding this baby for 1-2 months whenever I get a chance.
