I spent a little time this weekend trying to get a handle on the paint/rust situation with the 1973 2002. I decided that I wanted to at least make an effort to stabilize the situation for now. It is quite painful to look at the car as it is, knowing that Rust Never Sleeps! So I did some stripping and sanding of the paint.... really just the beginning of the first step in the process.
Lots of little rust areas to be stripped down to bare metal.
Down to bare metal in many places.
You can see the original Malaga here.
Getting ready to hit it with more primer.
I had a stash of primer in the garage from another project.... some grey, some red, and some white. Well, here is where I ran out of grey, much to my surprise and chagrin. I thought I had more, but.... since I moved a few years ago, it hasn't turned up. So, screw it. You go with what you have! ;)
Rat rod in the making! :)
