The zinc primer is the cause of your paint adhesion problems. It is not generally made to be top coated. A good sandblasting and zinc phosphorous acid etch and then 2 coats of P.O.R. 15 would be the best way of preventing rust. I use all P.O.R. 15 products and have excellent results with them, just follow the directions.

Thankyou for your fantastic and very interesting and informative thread. I enjoy your mix a fabricated and factory parts for the body tub and pan restoration. It is fortuitous that you are able to get the factory replacement panels that you have used. Your repairs are thorough. Happy motoring!

A gift from Germany:





The PKW Manual from 1969... the first year of production...
The rubbers are the old ones for the fuel channel on the chassis that I simple cleaned and aply on the car again.
