After all painting is done I spray lots of Amsoil heavy duty
protectant . It drys like brown wax-sort of-. I have been drilling
holes in hood too. They are rusting from inside out. You should pull out
license lights and spray oil in there too. A couple of extra holes in
hood frame would be good too. Cut large hole under rear quarter glass
under rear seat. Lets the leaves and dirt out. Later Dave the Wave

Dave,

The problem with cutting a "large hole" under the rear quarter glass
is that the heat from the engine pours through those holes and into
the passenger compartment at the rear quarter glass. Cutting a hole
certainly helps dry out those areas behind the doors but there is a
cost associated with doing it. Perhaps it might be better to cut a
small, say 1/2" hole, at the bottom rear corner of that panel. That
would help dry out that area and perhaps not let so much hot air into
the passenger compartment. Of course, when restoring the car be sure
to put lots of rust proof coating material into that bottom area as
well as the area under the doors.
