Some of those "before" pictures are truly terrifying but you guys have made it look so easy and I am seriously in awe of what you have achieved.
What causes the frame rails to rust out like that?

awe I don't think someone need this fully junk roof. As I can see the roof is fully corrosion and worthless. I think you have to throw it in the garbage. Sorry for this hard wording...

Rusty, earlier in the tread you removed the roof panel by melting the lead. How tough is it to melt and collect? Did you use oxy/acetylene or would mapp gas be enough? How did you keep it from running down the quarter panel?

Looking great by the way! Terrific workmanship!

Not hard if my granddaughter can do it. When it melts it doesn't stick if you scrape it right off.

Rusty I'm in awe of the awesome work at your shop..
A question as I'm stumped on my project.
How did y'all get the front cowl panel in and behind the A-pillar without cutting?

One more short question, when y'all wire brush is it a air or electric drill/grinder? I just can't seem to get all that crud off..
