One MUST realize that this Rear (Bottom) section is Very difficult to accomplish these results, This represents a TON of Work. My Neck and Back are aching just looking at this.
Super Hard. Manually with these results.

Can you share how or what you plan to do with the Surface Oxidized sheet metal, Coat with Rpm, Oil, Boeshield T9 ?

Thanks Jim.  Yes I will coat the areas of surface rust.  I initially thought I would setup the wash station of evapo and get all the areas completely clean but after cleaning I didn't feel like it so I plan to coat the areas with Rust Veto most likely.  In the areas where there is undercoating I will do RPM.  I may do all RPM just depends on how I feel once I start the process.  I will update on what I end up using when the time comes.  I still have to touch up some areas after stepping away from it for a few days and seeing these photos I see areas I am not happy with so I will knock those out next (also something) and then go to the protection aspect.  I might snag some Beoshield and give that a try also.  Something I have yet to use.

It may not look like it but I am more satisfied with the quarter wells.  Note the quarters well lips had been rolled at some point.
