Thanks!!! I looked through some of your photos....pretty serious operation looks like. What kind of primer did you use? I have purchased some self etching primer, and I am not sure, but I think I need an additional primer on top of that before I put down my base coat? I'm new to painting this sort of stuff, so there's a bit of trial and error happening. I had to go back and strip the parts I had previously painted and start fresh due to my inexperience. I may upgrade my operation to a paint gun and compressor.....as I am learning that it provides a far superior job. I'm not a paint guy, but I have the time, and capacity to pick it up. I don't weld either, which sucks, I don't have much rust to work with, there are two spots on the entire car that need to be cut and replaced. 3 if you count the dash where the stock radio was cut up. Overall though I found a pretty decent car.
