Looking for a little advice. Paint is the last thing on my list for my project since I know it comes with a hefty price tag, and am about to spend about 11k on the motor/tranny rebuild. I met up with a guy this weekend who restored a 66 Hertz, so I was able to pick his brain. I mentioned the shape that my hood was in, but that I wouldn't be doing paint for a while. He said to get this all sanded off, and to hit it with primer to make sure the surface rust doesn't turn into more of a problem. I don't have a paint booth or even a garage to use, but would like to get this addressed. Whats the plan of action that I should take? The original hood was stolen, and replaced a while back with this one. My plan was to sand it down, prime it, and hit it with some black just to protect it until an actual paint job was in the works.
