How best can I protect the interior of NOS doors and tailgate form a Gen 1 vehicle?

There use to be Ziebart...none here though. I know that all these panals rusted from the inside out and I want to save these. They are new /never installed. (gray primer inside and out).

might want to try using some POR-15 or something equivilant. Would help prevent the rust from even starting.

Wow,that's a nice score.Any others around?:)

Something with a really hard glossy coat.I guess an epoxy paint thinned out some.I doubt using it straight would be easy.I think it'll be a lot easier to spread around thinned out.And you'll avoid creating a resistance around the drain holes...just my thought.The reason my Zeibart'd '78 is still around is because they did the drain holes right.Too many cars held water,well,you know that,who am I talking to here?:lol:
