Well as Ive posted before Ive had some bad luck with *******s hitting my car in parking lots and just taking off. My hood is bent a little, and the bondo on the edge is cracked. Also there is some rust coming through now. I havent had any luck finding one in the junk yards so I think Im just gonna try and fix it when the weather gets better along with the latch and cable. What I need to know is could I use tremclad as a first coat on the hood to stop the rust from coming back through? My idea is to use a base of rust paint, then primer and then the car paint. I dont know if this will work, any opinions are welcome. If this is a bad idea Ill just keep looking for a replacement.
