Bottoms of both fenders need blasted but it was winter and couldn't do it. Will blast before next step.

Chemical stripper sucks nowadays so i went with 36 grit 7 inch disc on a 5inch air grinder, slow RPM to remove old paint material, No sparks, as sparks mean your removing metal.

Area between the rear window and truck also had 12 coats of paint or more, these cheap Harbor Freight chisels work great. watch out for your eyes

This Bird is a DD or all of these little areas would have been blasted and cake. hand work in these areas is hours of work
