I have noticed small rust spots here & there on my 87 K5. As of now, it still looks pretty good, but it does need a paint job, which is not in my budget right now. I have been told that it is not good to primer a vehicle and then not paint it right away, as it can still form rust under the primer..true? I have also seen where some of these hot-rod guys are priming their cars & then clear coating over the primer...will this stop the problems associated with just the straight primer? I've been laid off the past month, and been working on the K5 nearly the whole time, but am thinking about getting set up to do this on the next lay off (ahhh..the world of consruction). I can lay down a decent layer of primer in my shop, so thinking of doing this myself to thwart the rust and later on get it painted professionally. This would also be a good time to buy that cowl-induction hood I've been wanting. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Whaddya think?
