Earl Shibe. Haven't heard that name in years. Yeah, definitely want to hit the bottom of those pans with something. I'm gonna hit the interior of the driver's side with somethng before I put the interior in. It's not rusty in the sense of the word rusty. It sat outside for about a week and as you can see some water made it into the lowest point. It's just powdery surface rust. I haven't done anything to the bottoms though. I'd definitely hit the undercarriage with something.
As far as cheapo paint jobs go, you can get a Macco Ambassador Special for cheap. Under a grand for sure. You do get what you pay for though. You could just primer it to help ward off any rust for the time being and roll it like that. That's how my '63 is and I love it. No sweating over someone touching my car. If it gets a mark on it I can hit it with the touch up gun. Steve
