Got this kit for 18 bucks at Hobby Lobby yesterday... Decided to start building it...
Going for a rust/resto look.... Maybe.
Made some cancer spots and removed some trim..

Great subject matter for some rust!  And of course, some holes!

Great looking color on that. I'm looking forward to seeing how this turns out. How do you keep the salt on while you spray the paint. I know others have done this method, but I haven't tried it yet.
I'm having fun right now with this same kit. Nice to see you didn't chop it. How have you lowered the suspension, or have you yet? I am starting the rear by removing the leaf springs and making trailing arms with air bags.

Later-

Thanks...
I sprayed some water on the body and sprinkled the salt on and let it air dry, then painted the body and after the paint was dry, I scrubbed the body with dish detergent and warm water...

Got a little bit done today.
Did some work on the motor and got started on cutting the rear floor pan and wheel tubs so I can lay it out...
