We discovered a hole in the driver’s side fender where the horn was mounted rather poorly: vibration broke a chunk right out of the fender. Another Jetfire owner mentioned they had this trouble too. Relocation of the horns due to the TRF tank apparently was not thought out well. We used the chunk that broke out that was still attached to the horn to fix the hole.

Next, following another wipe down with pre-paint cleaner – we painted all the lower front frame section, the A arms, wheel wells etc.

Some of the final sanding and prep work. All the surface rust was removed and in some areas we sprayed with rust encapsulator, then whole bay was primed first then finish painted. The rad support and all of the other black areas were repainted too
