Mates,

I have a 1967 GTO that is nearing completion (I hope) of the metal work (both quarters had some rust and both hinge pillars). I am anticipating dustless blasting next spring. Is the next step then application of a primer or filler? I assume there won't be any new areas to do metal work, but not counting on it.

I just need to plan for next spring and getting together the timing if immediate priming is required. It will sit inside and will be a driver, not a show car.

Any thoughts welcome.

JD

I would first prime the bare metal to protect it so you won't develop any surface rust. Then go back over those areas you want to do your filler work (assuming you are talking about bondo), and grind the primer off to bare steel and begin your work.

You don't want to leave the car in bare metal for very long. Moisture, humidity, temp changes, etc. will have it rusting pretty quick.
