After cleaning up as much I could by hand I used a paint remover

The bare metal looks really good besides little surface rust on the sides

What should I use to neutralize the rust prior primer?

Hi Antonio. Check out the POR15 product line. It will work nicely for your project. Mark

Still have a lot of glue to be remove but slow I will get there. The front section where the floor panels were replaced, I will need to seal all the welds prior apply the primer , can any one sugest what to use ?

Hello

My car did not come with the bumper guards on the front or rear

Wife wants them and my job is to make it happen LOL

Where can I get 4 Bumper Guard, I was thinking using 4 (front ones) I dont need with holes in the rear, already chrome would be great

Stoddard has nice reproductions but decent used ones can be found if your wife is willing to be patient.

Thanks, I book marked Stoddard on my 356 for future orders

Because I am keeping the old patina on the chromes, used one would look much better
