Delayed painting

Hello
I am finishing installing the rear fenders ( welding and 3M adhesive worked well), I have now primed the outside of the fenders, unfortunately it may be 6 months or more before I will have the car painted, how can I protect this area from rust.
Thanks Ed

Wink Re: Delayed painting

The priming will help protect the metal from most surface rust as long as the vehicle is stored inside and in a relatively controlled moisture area (think a garage or other enclosed space).
If stored outside, even covered, you will most likely get rust even with primer.

Depending on primer type, storage variations and surface prep prior to primer you might be best to plan on just sanding back to bare in most areas and redoing prime, base and final clear all in one operation for your final finish.
This will assure the best possible surface for all the components to work.

If a man says something in the garage - and his wife can't hear him - is he still wrong !!!

Re: Delayed painting

Primer usually refers to paint applied not long before a top coat, that is porous to promote adhesion of the topcoat.
On bare steel, rust begins forming at a molecular level as soon as the metal is derusted and exposed to air.
I think modern paint technique would be strip, seal, prime, paint.
My point being that if you skipped sealer, and plan not to paint, apply sealer, plan to restrip, or roll the dice on the paint failing down the road due to rust.
