1979-1993 & 94 Conv
I think Cmyles has a early car that needs restoration that doesn't have rust issues.
I did an underbody restoration with all the front suspension removed, and had all the components blasted, and painted. Used POR15 on just about everything I could, and it worked OK. I don't think I would ever punish myself that much again....but, I am actually almost doing the same thing right now on an 89, but there isn't nearly as much corrosion on this chassis.
With the engine out, and all the suspension off the car, elevated so you can work on a stool, the time you spend there will be substantial. I would budget 100 hours -- probably 25 per corner and that might not be enough depending upon how much you have to go over. It is tedious, dirty, and eventually satisfying as you will so damn glad you are done with that piece of Swedish steel, that a celebration will commence.
