WOW! for 50 year old parts, this stuff is lookin good!

I unloaded most of the trailer this afternoon and there is a little damage but I'm more than pleased with the results of the cleanup and coating! Check these pics out! The hood support is something I was concerned would be damaged because once detached from the hood skin they are REALLY flimsey.
It has a small dent but looks GREAT! To see the contrast, I took one photo with the old seat backs compared to the new galvanized stuff on my garage floor.

It was a real PITA to disassemble, clean, sandblast to get this far but I think it worth it!

Thanks Guys,
I have another hood that I sand blasted and etch primed the steel frame on and I'm certain that its TOTALLY rusty underneath....

does anyone have an Idea What is the best way to isolate the the steel frames that are riveted to the alum. panels? It seems like paint is not the best insulator

galvanize then paint- or leave galvanized without painting. That galvanized frame tucked under a nice, newly painted bonnet will look great. The older Series II tubs had galvanized cross members from the factory- they always held up better than the newer, painted ones and were less likely to produce the chalky holes in the rear floor.
