Inner panel protection

I am aware of the different methods of out side finishes. What about the important inside finishes for long term protection.
I'm asking about the inner sides of the fenders, cab and bedsides. What do you do to preserve and make a long lasting coating to preserve those parts?
I will be doing a full restore and want to drive the thing so I'm not worried about cost of doing it right. I'm more concerned about doing it right and not destroying all the money spent on the restore to watch it rot from the inside out in time.
What are the best methods to restore a driver all the way? Thank you

Re: Inner panel protection

Has anybody ever used Fluid Film. It was originally designed to use in the marine world to protect the metal from slat water to reduce or minimize rust. Industries up north use it to coat their fleet vehicles for winter and such. I use it on all of my tools and any metal that that will be exposed to harsh conditions. It can be applied with brush or spray.

Re: Inner panel protection

Start with an epoxy primer, then urethane paint. This is a time tested proven anti corrosion process.
You can use fish oil or any other tonic that suites your eye, because the epoxy and urethane is 99% of your corrosion protection requirements.

Re: Inner panel protection

I agree with the wax coatings and to epoxy prime it first, pour it in there, if you have to. But this gun is a goodie! http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...d.php?t=765811

Re: Inner panel protection

Agree on the 3M cavity wax, just used it myself. Something to remember though. If you need to do any more welding. It will flame up. Lol
