A last trunk update and a look underneath..

Ok, last words about the trunk.
Everything’s painted now and we’ve even applied some black body paste on the inside side panels to keep the the rust away.
To be honest, I really didn’t realize that it would mean this much job to “touch up the trunk” but now when it’s done I’m really happy with the outcome.

Today we seriously started with cleaning the metal underneath before starting with the “rust prevention treatment”.
I’m actually a little amazed with the fact that a 40+ year old original car can look this good pretty much without any treatment apart from paint.

I guess it has something to do with the fact that it’s been in sunny California all it’s life.
