Sorry to hear that, if they say he should be good that's a great sign. I did 8 rounds of chemo (every 2 weeks) and 20 rounds of radiation (5 times a week) myself. That was 9 years ago :allgood:

That's what I had too, there's a few different types, mine was hodgkins lymphoma, stage 2b. If you or your Dad have any questions PM and I'll be happy to help out any way I can.

I usually go 80 unless it's something like a frame rail that can be kind of scaly and rough so 24 - 36 would make faster work of it. Regardless I finish with 180 - 220 before priming. Also there's 2 types of paper, p-grade and cami(?) and the grits are different, 220 of one is coarser than 220 of the other. There's a chart of it somewhere on the forum. There's some good stickys on the top of the body&paint forum you should check out. This one is good at expalining the grits to use, it may have that chart in there too, don't recall?

I wish you both all the best. Doctors tend to call them the way they see them so it's a very good sign that they're saying he will be fine. :goodjob:

engine bay plan sounds good

no problem, perfect is always the goal. there are a lot smarter people here than me though so do read some of the stuff posted on the body&paint part of the forum, anything by Martin Sr. is a must read. I just do this resto stuff for fun, or so I tell myself but there's always new products coming out and I work slow so I'm always behind what's new out there.
