I have been working on restoring a 70 Coupe door. I first took it to work and stripped all the paint off in a dip tank. (1 day) then sanded and wire brused it inside and out (2nd day). I then primered the inside (3rd day) and now final coated the inside (4th day). Anybody who wouold do this on the inside is crazy. I then plan to spray it with a Duplicolor undercoat.

I think by the time it's hung, all innards replaced and the outside body worked - it'll be 30 days! I need help!

You're, not obsessed...You're just lucky you had the dip tank. I figure it would have taken you at least ten days to sand the inside of the door down to bare metal otherwise.

Thanks - but sometimes it does get to you. Things that seem like you can do in a day turn into days! Even the strip tank worked slow, and it took about 8 hours in the tank and I woiuld bring it up out of the tank about every hour, remove loosened material and lower for another hour - I think the tank's fluid was in need of change.

I now have the door primed and painted - inside only. Tomorrow night I apply new undercoat - then the exterior fun.
