I think we’re about ready for some primer. But first: more bog.
There are a whole bunch of little dents on the inside, as expected in a 50 year old car with lots of exposed metal.

Sin’s going to fill the worst offenders (crossmember, companion pockets, and dashboard) before priming the whole shell.
Finally it’s time for primer. We’re going for a dark grey on most of the shell, and white on the roof- the theory being that stone chips will be less obvious.
