Ok so I decided to start prepping it for paint. I sanded with 80, 120, 150, 400 grit. Washed it then the pitted areasi used body filter then resanded it. It came out smooth. I used preventative rust primer. The only spot that made me want to pull my hair out was the "gas can doors"on the side. It took me probably 15 hours sanding those two cans. The other side was easy, but it wasn't pitted as bad. Here are some pictures. Ive only done one coat. After it dries ill sand it with 800 &1500 grit. Then put second coat on.
Should I put clear coat on it?
This one is the spot I spent most of the time on

I like the way the red came out.
