Project update: Saab

Unfortunately, my internet back home in Erie isn't functioning very well and I havn't been able to sort it out yet. Therefore, I can't seem to upload any photos to Blogger at the moment, but for some reason or another, I'm able to upload to Facebook. So, without further ado, here's a link to the album:

So as you can see, I've been bussy grinding away at the rust in my 1993 Saab 900. Nearly all of the corrosion in the car is in sections of the body that have been replaced at some point or another due to accident damage. Since I'm a poor college student, I'm trying to do this project as cheaply as possibly. Bondo will most likely be heavily involved where ever possible, though I'm going to have to get real creative with the gaping holes in the front fenders. After the body work is complete, I intend to get a gallon of mineral spirits and some Rustolium "Saftey Red" paint and try my hand and the infamous "$50 paint job" based on these links, though with my own improvisations along the way:

Stay tuned for more! (hopefully without photos via Facebook)
