Getting to bare metal

I knew it was going to take some time - but I'm slowly getting the body of "Ruby" back to her base of shiny metal. The majority of the work is with a sander and drill with a paint stripper pad.

As I indicated before - three layers of paint can be a bit much. Just time, patience and things are coming together.

Now all that is left is a bit on the back and the drivers side door.

Soon I'll have the body stripped down. I am going to do a combination of lead filler and bondo. Should be interesting as I've never done much lead work except for soldering. I know I just need to take my time and go slow.
