We started by replacing th drivers floor pan. Then didnt like the trunk(lets replace that) trunk pan extension werent to great well lets do them now now its time to  mini tub  frame connecters replace the 10 other small pin holes here and there. Now its time to clean up the bottom for primer(maybe we  can undercoat it) No so here we go stripping every dame inch.So we can paint the bottom body color as well. I was wondering if everybody does the same? Say your going to repair just the necessary and then find yourself polyester puddying the lower frame rails Maybe Im just obsessed!

No, you aren't the only one!  :)  I just rolled mine over a couple of weeks ago to get the barnacles off her bottom. I plan on full epoxy primer and body color also.   doh

I guess there are a few of us around who don,t know when to stop. I painted my whole car with three coats of epoxy. Replace everything from the shackles on the rear leaf springs to the rad. You only live once.
