With the interior basically all cleaned up I felt it was time to finish it off and primer it along with the firewall. Even though the rust repair isnít done yet I thought that I might as well prime the full car. Overall the body is in good shape so I went over it thoroughly with a couple different grits. With the sanding done I got a good look at the lower quarters and could see some rust holes, looks like a small patch will take care of it.

This is the update I had hopes of doing Friday but with class canceled I went with plan B, shot the primer in my garage. Not much to say other than I only used 1/2 a quart and it is only one coat, Iíll probably put a second coat on the interior, firewall and jams and leave the rest for when the bodywork is done.

I still need to clean up the tail panel and I take care of the other quarter when I do that.

The biggest hole in the windshield frame is filled, still a little cleanup to do on the filler. The patch was pulled from my parts car, all the other patches will probably be made from raw stock.
