    The underside didnt look too bad. Probably could use a good media blasting from top to bottom.

    I thought only the 85/86's had those rear bumpers and bubble glass. Guys have i missed something?

    I just called around last week for media blasting. I recieved to very different quotes. keep in mind you have to totally strip the car bare. I mean everything has to come off. One company quoted me $800, and another $2500. However the $2500 guy was way more detailed in describing to me exactly what they would do to the car, and why its worth it .As well he stated that I should tour his shop first. So I guess maybe we get what we pay for. But if you Media blast the car it wont have a spot of rust on it, and you can start totally fresh.
    If your going to do a real resto, its probably worth the money.
