I am in the midst of the finish work on my 50 Deluxe cab interior. I have
the holes and damage to the dash all repaired and repaired the numerous
holes in the cab that didnt belong. I have sanded the interior down to the
bare metal so this initially would indicate using etchant primer. Problem
is, there is rust under the paint in quite a few areas. Sanding doesnt
remove it, its very deep and even a grinder would only succeed in gouging
the metal and causing even worse damage. So, there is this primer by
Permatex called Extender. Its a product that turns rust into primer.

Here is the dilemna.... I have bare metal mixed with an occasional rusty
patch that has been sanded as smooth as possible. Do I primer it with the
etchant primer OR the Extender? Which one? Any gurus out there, please let
me know what you would do.

Thanks again!
