Boy I wish you would have asked some questions in the paint forum about stripping a car I would have suggested you stripped the whole thing, yeow that's a big job you need to finish up before you get into trouble. One panel at a time, then get it into epoxy primer is my suggestion.

You still need to remove components like the windows so you can strip all the paint off too, slow down a little.

You have a cool car there and it looks real solid! Slow down and get something in epoxy and then move on to another panel or few panels. The front clip would be a good start. Do you plan on completely disassembling it or are you planning on leaving the jambs all un-painted?

"I would NOT have suggested you stripped the whole thing"* is what I meant to say. One panel at a time and into epoxy primer.

Just a question, did you use an etch or Epoxy primer underneath the Polyester Primer?

For the future...Polyester Primer is a bit of a sponge and will hold moisture, plus it doesn't have any rust protective properties. It's a good idea to use either an etch Primer or and Epoxy primer. These primers would help potential future rust issues. I prefer Epoxy as you can do body work (use filler) right over top.

Epoxy Primer just extends the life of your hard work as well as your restoration.

That is a nice looking car. I have a '42 Fleetline and it is my favorite car I have owned so far.
