EDIT: Working on posting photos... Hi everyone, I've been looking for a 61-66 F100 project for awhile now in order to pass the time while at Fort Hood, TX. I found a solid '66 F100 short bed that I'll have home within the next week to start working on. It's a factory 352, 4-speed 435NP with a granny gear, Dana 60 with factory locking 3.54 gears. It hasn't run in a few years, but according to the previous owner it "ran when parked" for whatever that's worth. lol. It needs some body work, but mostly just bumps and bruises from being used around their property. The tailgate is completely gacked from someone backing into the truck with a tractor. Luckily, because it sat out in the desert it doesn't have very much rust to take care of. My plan is to build up a 390 with decent heads, cam, intake, etc. or possibly find an another OT FE motor (in the vicinity of 428ci if you know what I'm sayin), as well as give it a decent hot rod rake, steel wheels and hubcaps, and a 4 speed toploader. Should be fun. My main concern is keeping the rust from spreading in the vital areas like the cab corners, mounts, drip rails, bed. Being in TX right now it's not much of an issue, but once I get it back to Baltimore I know I'll be fighting the moisture. I was thinking of just knocking the surface rust off and using a clear primer like some Rust-oleum auto body primer in clear to keep it from spreading. That way until I get it painted I don't have to look at splotches of primer. I'm not one much for the PaTiNa look, but I just want to keep it from becoming deeper rust. Any thoughts on that?
