    Coal slag, OK. I thought it could've been crushed black walnut. Funny, though, that coal slag is even around anymore. Railroads in the Eastern U.S. used to ballast their tracks with the stuff, since it was a byproduct of their coal-fired steam locos. Once diesels came on the scene, though, it disappeared, then was controlled by the EPA as a hazardous material. Interesting. Does it etch the metal, as some sand media can do?

    It will be a long time before all that slag is used up Andy. There are still mountains of that stuff untouched around here.

    I vacuum up my media, screen it and reuse it. Even the walnut.
    Here they don't let us have that stuff.

    You need special license to use it in CA per CARB.
    If I were using it, I would keep it to myself.

    That's what I'm afraid is gonna happen to Babe. I'll end up wire-wheel cleaning the entire rear seat and cubby floor away.

    Looks like you are saved the trouble of making lightening holes in the sheet metal.

    Andy,
    Looks like you are making good progress, lots of hard work already done. Just need a bit of mayo and some roast beef, you already have all the "swiss cheese" you could want. :p All kidding aside, not too bad for a 46+ year old vehicle, nothing a bit of sheet metal/floor pan work won't fix. If it's gonna have rust, that would be the best place to have it(if there is ever a "best" place), the A & B pillars, rockers and kick panel areas look excellent. Keep posting the progress.

    That's some deja vu all over again - had to do the mast and the SPS-43 platform on USS INDEPENDENCE (CVA-62)(at the time) with one of the those - chip the paint, sand, prime with red-lead and paint. Those were some long, noisy days hanging in a climbing harness with the dry dock floor a lotta way down there.
