    Default My 355 HZ Wagon project

    As others have suggested, I have finally started my project thread.
    It's a 1979 HZ prem wagon, 308,trimatic,and air.
    I have always loved the shape and I finally bought one as a project in July 2007.
    Paid 3500 for this.





    The Wife and Kids call it the "BOMB"
    First to go was the bull bar and then the Gas all sold on Ebay


    Then started the task of stripping everything from the shell.

    Interior gone


    After more pulling down I noticed more rust than I hoped for so I picked up another HZ wagon for $400 to use as parts.


    Turned out the spare part car had a better shell than the original Prem.
    So I made the discision to completely strip the Prem and fit everything to the other shell.
    I don't want to run LPG so the new shell also did not need the rear wagon floor welded in.

    Motor out

    Got the shell blasted





    Took it to work on Saturday and spent the best part of a day getting rid of all the media.

    Then pushed it into the booth.

    Once the shell was blasted the rust REALLY stands out.

    The worst I believe is in the roof.

    Got the "Bomb" home and started on the underneath. Not a job I'd wish on anyone!



    Also I did not like all the welding dags on the rails at the front of trhe car so I got the angle grinder out.
