Hi all,
Im a newbie here & new to restoring cars etc.
Just picked up an old HG Ute that Im hoping to clean up & bring back to life.
Will be a long process with lots of learning to do etc along the way.
Lots of reading of sites like this have started me off on the learning curve.
My Ute doesnt appear to have heaps of rust but Im hoping to get it sandblasted so time will tell.
Here are some pics of her so far.

This is last week when I checked her out the first time.

Ok finally did some real work on this car.
I now have it on a car stand & packed in the shed after removing the front end & front & rear
suspension etc.
Plan now is to sand blast the front clip & cleanup & rebuild the front end & then see what I want to do from there.

Yeah the guy I bought it off said he was playing with his spray gun or something.
Glad he stopped when he did :P
Paint sure does hide alot.
