    I might spray it down with some cheap enamel if I get around to it when it's warm. The primer doesn't bug me too much, but the trim does. What's there has been painted black and all the body mouldings are gone.

    When it quits raining, I'll get some shots of the underbody and rear wheel tubs. They are surprisingly nice. I thought the right side of the rear body sill was rotted, but it turns out it's just the floor panel itself that's rusted. That's a first for me. The PO showed me where he put some Bondo in the hood and the rear wheel arches, I think that's the worst of the rust.

    And I don't know where this thing has lived. The front dealer plate might be original? But there's stickers in the window that say it was in Michigan in the late 80's, which I think is where the PO bought it.
