Ok guys,
just started to tear into the 72 914. starting with the interior. I have removed the seats and the "backing" that goes behind and between the seats.

So , I do have some surface rust, mostly in the drivers side well. and the sound deadening layer has some wear holes in it. so do you guys remove all that sound deadening stuff - then start at bare metal? or just leave that alone, and get after the rust that is exposed?

Best tool for removing the rust? I do have electric grinding tools with the twisted wire column wire wheels, I also have air available, and a dremel tool. whats the most efficient way to get the rust gone, and back to bare metal?

and is there a good source for a carpet kit?

Remove all sound deadening from the floor. Heat gun and scraper work best (for me).
Wire wheel is good for surface rust. For areas that have "rust acne", I use Ospho to treat it. Then prime/paint.
Carpet Kit: 914 Rubber.

I'm in the process of doing exactly what you're taking on. Take a look, starting at post # 39. There are a ton of us who've done this. The search tool is your friend.
Best of luck!

And "Calwaterbear"...? H20 polo at Berkeley?
What year(s)? I have some buddies who were on the team.
Go Bears!

Thanks for all the help guys,
sorry Chris, not a Cal H2o Polo player. I'm a research Biologist, the name reflects the animals I am currently studying - Tardigrades, also known as waterbears, and I'm native Californian, so thats how it ended up!
