    Very interesting. Makes me wonder (worry?) about what is lurking underneath my pristine looking floorpan undercoating.

    this was believed to be a rust free car when i purchased it. Granted rust free and scorpion are oxymorons... but i still believe for what its worth this is a very rust free car. I actually have a scorpion who's floorpans and everything else is pristine. Thats another project...lol

    Glad I have taken the time and tedious work to take this car far deeper than I ever thought I was going to. The end result will be far better.

    My goal is to now have the car ready for FFO18 in Orlando

    How did you remove the undercoating? Wire wheel?

    You are a little bit selfish, Scorpions should be spread around a bit more!

    Congrats.

    those are just for spares. i have the kids at school strip them down as an assignment. They have fun and learn at the same time. I figured it would be better to part these out than see them go to the crusher. Not much saveable, but the parts i can save i will. Really dont need any parts from old cars, only new parts now unfortunately! Hopefully soon I can get the car chassis painted and completed. I just keep finding more and more to do and there is no reason to do a poor job at this point. My goal remains the same, to be driving by the fiat freak out.

    Totally the right thing to do, cars beyond redemption should be stripped to their minimum of useful bits for the survival of the remaining members of the tribe.

    Though, up here that might be considered a restoration candidate...
