I used Ditzler red oxide primer on the steel of my TR4.
I belive the old "hotrod gray" Isn't waterproof... The red oxide
suggestion came from a neighbor made custom agricultural
equipment. Over the red oxide went Dupont Sandy, a "high build"
primer for body finishing. Then, over the "Sandy", went Ditzler
catalyzed enamel. It's 12 years later and it still looks good!
