    For some reason PO stripped the hood and left it. I want to paint it and do a patina so the rust can still be seen. Don't really know how

    I'd never heard of Sautee, GA. Looks like you're way up there in the mountains. Let me know if you're ever down this way with the wagon, and I'll do likewise. :tiphat:

    I like Stops Rust red primer from Rustoleum. Its easy to roll, and protect very well the steel. And it's cheap :yup:

    Even though it's called Rustoleum, primer is still porous and in need of proper paint finishing, to seal it.
    That wagon would look best in silver. Before he does anything, he has to get rid of that ugly color. It's not the color that's so ugly. But, the combination of the color with that body design.
    Paint it silver and either do the roof in dark red or red vinyl, if you wish. Or just paint the entire car silver. If fake wood is going to be used, then add the darkest reddest sticker available. Redwood with a mahogany border, for example
