This was how I did my undercarriage blasting, paint and undercoat.

I was able to cut out much of the rotten metal yesterday. I still have more to come out. I am being careful near the rockers and to the front of the pans. The diamond blade on the grinder is like magic. I hope to have everything cleaned up and ready for weld in over the 4th of July. I have ospho for treating the metal after all spotwelds are out.

Welcome from Ontario Canada! Looking forward to seeing your restoration progress.

Regarding the draining of the fuel tank, you can force fuel out of the tank using compressed air. Insert your air blow gun in the filler neck, seal it with a rag. The air entering the tank will force fuel out.
