    Tha't not overspray on the firewall, it's remnants of that rubber crap Toyota put on the floorborads and kickboards. I used a grinder to remove it with a wire wheel and s*#t went everywhere!

    Thanks man. I prepped like a SOB, grinded down all the paint, primed, yadda yadda. I pray to God it doesn't peel! After all the metal I replaced and the rear sill, this is the culmination of a LOT of hours!

    If you want any advice (I learned from a few mistakes) lemme' know. I was brand spanking new to metal/bodywork.

    Looks good.

    I brushed Durabak/Herculiner inside my 80. It's been there for about a year now and no peeling. I did use about three gallons though on the floor and prepped like a SOB too.
