Default Priming the Hood of a 1980-1986 F-Series Truck and Bronco

Well this is the way I started on mine, I'm by no means a professional but have done enough to be dangerous, you'll notice over spray on the fenders and the front clip IDC about that as the are going to be replaced, the d-side is bent and they are both rusting out.

What you'll need:


You'll need 2 bottles, one to drink while sanding, cleaning, and then for the first coat and waiting for it to dry and then the second for the second coat and waiting for it to dry:headbang:.



Regular sandpaper is $3 something at wally-world, this was $1.54 for 6 sheets of 3M.



I got two cans of this stuff, $3.49 a can at wally world.

This is before sanding or cleaning, basically what I started with:


This is after the first sanding and before the cleaning:


This is after I cleaned it:


Second sanding:


I didn't get a pic of the after cleaning, but I used LA's Totally Awesome cleaner As Seen on TV IDK where dad got it but it worked pretty damn good.

First coat of primer looks kinda like poo but I'm gonna do another coat just to be safe:

Right after is was applied:






Fixing to go out and apply the second coat, part II coming up.

Here is the finished Hood:



I decided to wait on the Roof and get three more cans to be sure I have enough to do it, it took me 1 and 1/4 cans to do the hood.

I went ahead and sanded and primed the rust over the rear wheels this is after 2 coats:
P-side:


D-side:


And I decided I'd practice a little and did a wheel that I have, I think I'm getting fairly good:

It's your choice up to this point of whether to give the primer a little finish dry sand, you can wet sand the Rustoleum Primer 15-30 minutes after it is applied and dry sand it 4 hours after it is applied, I let mine sit over night and lightly sanded the hood, here is the finished hood:



Remember take your time with this stuff, be sure and tape off what you don't want the primer sticking to, ALWAYS sand the rust off and the paint and clean it off of any oils, dirt, or dust, and don't worry about the first coat your supposed to do light coats anyway and can get about 2 coats out of one can this size.

I had once thought of doing that to my '82
but it would take away from its character
I've had this one since new, belive the paint problem is due to years of folks hanging around the Truck drinking beer with salt and tomato juice (very common down here during the summer)

Use some Flat/Satin clear on it that'll keep it from rusting any worse and preserve the patina that makes the truck what it is.
