The guy that did the bodywork said he used the best
primer he could buy and that I could leave it like
that for 10 years and it would not rust. It's a
different look to it, a sheen, not flat like most I've
seen. He used black and then topcoated it with this
satin finish grey. But I'm not going to take anything
for granted and sand a few areas to check for rust.
It's been in the garage all this time too.
