    Hi.. I am sanding down an Austin 8, there are a few coats of paint to get through. I won’t be ready for respraying until next year, and I am a bit unsure about what to put on the bare metal. Does anyone have any advise? do I just leave it until I am ready, or should I coat it in something to protect it? Thank you.

    I’m not an expert in painting, but I should think that you might want to at least a coat or two of primer – you’ll probably end up sanding this back as part of the later preparation process, but it will at least keep rust away – and rust will be harder to get back to a decent finish later on.
