Wire wheels on a drill, but don't last long, so using a different wheel now which takes paint off and use wire wheels to get rust out

Problem I'm having is getting into the small areas

I've been spending couple hrs a day on it, in total I'd say a week to do it all

Bit more done, finished back to metal, two coats of rust bullet and sealant applied, hopefully high build primer and stone chip tomorrow, ready for paint and lacquer
































Also ordered every single brake line, from it, clips and bolts from dealer so they should be here soon, and I'll order all new fuel stuff next week as well, so as soon as I get bushes and other stuff I can start building car back up soon
