stripping the interior

ahh stripping the sound proofing tar is a pain in the ***!! im almost done tho thank god. its below freezing here so i did not need to use dry ice, im using a long screwdriver and a hammer to hit the end of the screwdriver lol. but i finally found a trick.... the area that you want gone, hit with a hammer really hard all over to loosen it up i guess then just go crazy with the screw drivers almost like stabbing it lol (sorry for the violent comparison). but it works well but i still have the tackle the worst part... behind the pedals and on the side of the tranny tunnel to the right. then its on to painting

Yep, removing the tar takes a while. I just did it last weekend and spent probably 10 hours on it, plus another two with painting over my scratches. I saved most of the pieces of tar and put them in bags before throwing them out. I estimate that what I removed weighed at least 20 pounds, maybe 30.

The dry ice is easier then, one hit with a hammer, and it shatters like ceramic.

I weighed mine after I removed it, it was a little over 20 lbs... no more than 25 even if I had gather up all the dust.
I used an air chisel and burrowed through the floor pan in a couple places accidentally.
Good luck
