I'm just getting started on this project, first I need to stop the rust. I'm in the process of building a shop but that could take awhile. I haven't done any body work since the 80's and I was wondering what products are out there now to provide rust protection for the inner cavities on these fenders.

Well you can either take ALL the rust off with a mechanical method and then apply anything from paint to undercoat. or you can use a rust converter applied over the de-scaled rust. This will not protect non rusted areas. Of course you must replace all rusted out sections with new metal as you are doing.

I've heard decent results about Eastwood's rust converters. Ultimately the best method is fully removing it and reapplying paint.
Funny thing about undercoating is I found more rot in the areas undercoated than the areas painted in the process of restoring my 66.

POR15 is a high quality rust resistant paint that people have been very pleased with. I only have experience with eastwood, but I've been told by professionals that por15 is the way to go. Food for thought.

Haven't had much time to work on it lately but I did get the patch panels ready to weld in. Ordered some por 15 from Amazon but now I'm going salmon fishing so it's going to be put off for 2 more weeks. By the way, I'm used to doing this with air tools and I was pretty leery about using a cheap tool shop cut off tool but that thing is very capable. Especially for around 20 bucks.
