I wanted to get all the loose rust, carpet, and insulation cleaned up before I start pulling the rest of the interior out, not to mention before I try to get the engine fired up this weekend maybe.

This thing has TITANIC level rust. The subframe, the THICKEST METAL on the car is rotten through and splitting apart. I don’t know how its held together this long. I just hope it survives the de-part-ening.
