Just start by posting a note introducing yourself to the group, that's all it takes here (we don't ask for or retain any personal information here, because our intention is to just "have fun and share information".
Looks great Dave. What was the original finish on the frame? My buddy is struggling with the 66 Lancer frame as it's quite corroded. We were able to polish a small section to a high shine but it took hours. I'm thinking painting might be an easier option but I think polished is correct. My 75' had a windshield frame that was anodized so polishing was not an option. Fortunately it just needed cleaning(probably due to being anodized).
We wet sanded, wet sanded again, steel wooled, and polished which worked but took forever. Anyone have a better method?
