I sanded the hood and fender to get the rust off, applyed a coat of wax and cut grass for 2 hours. The 1050 is alot of fun to drive and work with. Could be my favorite, but don't tell the 1256.

What can I do (without taking it apart) about light rust where hood bolts to hinge, and where dash tower hits tubes? If I hit it with a wire brush and just spryed with Rustoleum stops rust clear would tat protect it.

Here are some pics after wax

WOW
It looks great! Its amazing what a little washing and waxing can do :thumbs:
I often wonder what people think when they drive by my driveway and see all my tractors lined up getting washed instead of the car :D

If the rust is not that bad in those areas you may just be better off leaving it alone and keeping it all original. I guess if you want you can sand the rust off in those areas and hit it with a bit of primer and paint from a rattle can.

I would like to keep it original, just trying to slow down the rust.

Heres a pick of the dealer sticker. I love the old LAafayette phone number exchange, I remember from the 60's

Ed's has been closed for years but the building still sits empty.
