Default undercoating removal?

any ideas? why did they put it all over? have been under the car for at least 20 hours this summer with various wirewheels on dffrent style grinders, i have tried to soften it up with starting fluild, brake cleener, paint stipper, and follow it up by more grinding when its softer. i was hoping to get the underside in etchlock primer and chassis black before the cold rolls back in. anyone know a better way. im about 60% done.

yes and have tried an electric hot knife and tried to melt through the thick areas. ill try to post some pics in my turbo build to show some progress of the car. i need to get the underside done to put the rear end and sub frame back in so i can get it to roll. that way i can get my 89 in my garage and out of my bodys before winter. hows your car going doc?

Actually, pretty good. Engine and trans are back in and hooked up. Have to re route a couple of header pipes and wastegate. Git new valve covers and my original pipes that I fabbed up hit the covers. Should be this week or next.

2 minutes with the sand blaster = 20 minutes with a wide varity of air grinders. surface rust, undercoating, old paint, nothing but pretty metal. looks like i will clean out my garage and finish it up in the morning. followed by cleaning sand out of my garage the rest of the day.
