This front clip has irritated me for years, and finally I had enough time to work on it. Specifically since I finally found my lost Craftsman Orbital Sander Yesterday morning!
This is only a rust preventative paint that is going to act as a primer for now until I get the panels to patch the major rust in the floor and put on the new doors/seals I have in the shed. Then the whole body and all panels will get media blasted and I'll use my compressor and gun to give it a proper coat of paint. :)
Unfortunately most of this fender I had to sand by hand due to the bends. (I didn't want flat spots I'd have to fill later)
The hood wasn't so bad. There are a few small dents and I had to keep from denting it further by pushing too hard, but since I'll be putting a cowl hood on it later anyway, this is the last coat of paint it will see till it's pulled off, replaced and sold. [eventually]
Believe it or not, there is some original blue under all that rust and white [obviously spray painted] topcoat.
