Ok, NOW I'm done patching rust! Now, I gotta get all this black crap off the back floor, and start cleaning, prepping, seam sealing, and painting!

Figured I better come in and give an update before I pass out from all the fumes in the garage tonight. Finished sanding everything yesterday, wiped it all down with acetone today, then shot it with my $24 a can self etching primer. After it dried, it wouldn't scratch off with a fingernail, so I'd say its going to hold good, and give a good base for the Raptor. Then I went over all the seams, and new welds with seam sealer. That stuff rocks! Hides a lot of sins! I'll hit the sealer with primer tomorrow, then it will be spray day!

Make sure you get it good and clean, the coating is peeling off the interior on the orange Jeep. Some of the undercoating is peeling off underneath too, but no big deal.

Looking good!

One small constructive critique...I think you should have used an acid-based rust converter before priming and sealing. It seeps into the seams, nooks and crannies that you can't get to with a wire wheel.

What exactly do you mean? Self Etching primer is acid based, that's how it etches?

just wondering if maybe i'm being dense here...?

Ben,

The rust converters I'm talking about are a phosphoric acid solution. They have about the same consistency as water. If applied liberally, it runs deep into the seams and other places that primer or sealers never touch.

I use Prep & Etch from Home Depot, but there are other similar products available.

Oh, I did. Used Por's prep and etch on the whole thing, once I dug out the seam sealer that was starting to lift. Acetone wasn't my only treatment! I actually applied the prep and etch twice in some spots. Then I sprayed the primer down into all the cracks and crevices before I went over them with seam sealer.

My god, it shouldn't be! I had some peel off the rear floor, so I scraped it all off, prepped it again, and recoated it. I remember that tub being extra greasy when I brought it home though. I even burnt some off with the torch!

Good deal.

I think a lot of guys miss that step, then they wonder why their pretty new paint job is bubbling and cracking a few months later.

All masked off and just about ready to spray. One more good wipe down in the morning, and the Raptor is goin in!

Something else I thought of today is, how much of a sin would it be to take this original tan Levi's edition rear seat that I have with no tears, and paint it black so I can use it?

For some reason, it's only allowing me upload one pic at a time, so here's one more.

It was a busy weekend for sure! Removed and replaced my rusted out fender yesterday, got the interior put back together, and took a quick spin topless in the 26 degree sunshine! Back in the garage now getting ready for paint. Ordered all my body supplies today (filler, primer, paint, etc.), so that's the next project. Until then, I got some work to do sanding off the old paint
