Unknown primer on Hood and Trunk lid

#1
When i got my TR6 the trunk and hood were both already primered. Some flash rust forming on them. Would it be ok to just scuff with 80 grit wipe with 700-1 and SPI epoxy primer?

I agree, da the stuff off, rusting sounds like Acid Etch or DTM urethane primer.

Now for the underside of the deck-lid and hood, red scuff pad and put 2 coats epoxy over it BUT not the outside.

Same restoration - inside cavity and internal door has original paint. Can i just scuff that as well and hit it with the primer? Not planning on painting these just leaving black SPI epoxy

@Barry
I have a follow up question on this restoration project. I am approaching the end of my rust repair work and will need to apply some body filler around the patched areas. Going to use Evercoat Rage Ultra 125. Should i lay down the SPI Epoxy Primer first or do the body filler first?

Wow man, You got your work cut out for you. Looking good though, and little man there helping is awesome! Be sure to add gussets to those lower A-arm mounts, I promise you'll be glad you did! It's maroon, that's a fairly rare color anymore, same color as the '69 I had. Now I have a '74 that I got pulled off of when the corvette came in, so it's a future project. Everybody loves a Tr6, gets more interest than jags and porsches!

Sadly, I don't think I have any pics of my spitfires, I sold them in the 90's. But here's a link to my photobucket page with pics of my present Tr6.

Btw... The '69 I had, I painted it a ford black metallic ...this would have been in the 80's, with a white top, white tonneau, flip down headrests and white piping in the black carpets. It was a wonderful car, girls REALLY liked it!

It's called Corrosion Block. It's a marine/aviation grease that's waterproof, but it has many uses. Google that one, it's related to corrosionX and acf50. All fantastic products. The steering column piece after I stripped it just looked like it should be polished :)
