Thinking of buying a 240z with loads of surface rust. Best way to sand?
Hey guys, first post here but I've been lurking for the last 6 months. I finally have the opportunity to buy a 73 240z but it's got a bunch of surface rust on the roof and a but on the hatch and hood. I asked the owner and he said it's just on the surface even though it's been sitting for the last 8 years. I'll go and take a look at it soon but the price is definitely right as long as it's just surface rust.
My question for y'all, what's the best way to sand a whole car? This will be my first ever project car and my research here says I should hand sand using a block sander. What's the best technique to do that and how long do you all think it'll take to do the whole car? I'd plan on priming it after as well then taking it to a professional paint shop to get repainted since I don't trust the cleanliness of my garage.
