There isn't much rust close to the window but I get what you are saying. For a car worth about $100 I really don't want to start pulling glass, hopefully I won't live to regret it. This is just another case proving how shitty vinyl tops are. I will rust convert everything that looks suspect. My goal is to have paint that will polish nice, little to no orange peel, decently smooth panels, no noticeable rust after a year, getting 30 mpg, till I get the Olds 350 back in and will put the A/C back in at that point. We will see if any of this works out. Eventually the driver's side floor will need done and I may do a carbon fiber head liner, mine has no material right now. If this turns out at all, the 70S will be next.

Trunk stripped. You can see the corner where I stripped the rust out of the edge of the trunk in the second picture, it hasn't gotten any worse. Next will be the back quarter panels.

This arrived today. The 623 is the small bottle and the 624 is the big bottle. The numbers must indicate size, other look identical.

Getting balder, just like me.

Driver's side is basically stripped, I will get pics up next week. I am also seriously considering putting on the truck sbc serpentine setup on and getting the A/C working. I have everything but the CS130 alternator, I have the reverse rotation diesel water pump, pulleys, ps pump and can get a 351 Windsor bottom pulley for free. That and the billet adapters are needed. This allows A/C to back on with maybe less drag.

Much less paint. I also treated the ugliness with rust converter.
