Good advice i was able to get them off pretty much the same way you said except i used some fishing string Just make sure to wear some gloves before you attempt this or things could get messy

Looks like you're making good progress to me.

More fun than a broken leg but yes any thing i can take off the car and clean up and paint or put some POR-15 on it,is coming off.

It's taken me 3 days to get it this far but i have at least 5 months to get it done. My other planned goal is to take the head light assy's apart and powder coat all the parts and replace all the little bushings.

If you change your mind, I think I can buff that out.

For what I can see, you will have to use a builder primer in those areas where a lot of paint was taken off, You have a mountain to climb, If you have a painter friend, have him look it over before you start priming, that way you won't be going backwards on filling different areas to get it all flat, There are different grades of filler primer and dryers, I'm sure you know this? I'd say you have just scratched it so far,, Happy arms are to come. Hve fun.
