    Panko's Mk1 Escort (Round 2)

    Can always make some later if they don't look pretty enough for the rest of the build. You know where to find me if you need help with stuff like this.

    Panko's Mk1 Escort (Round 2)

    It's nuts how many parts are made incorrectly for the resto sector. It's a waste of time for everyone involved when stuff doesn't work the way they are supposed to. Getting there though [emoji106]

    9 inch air filter for weber 34

    I'd go for the acid etch prime method first.. Worst case scenario it might chip and if it does, just wash it down with thinners to get the paint off then sand or fine blast it before painting again. I reckon the etch will be good enough though. Not something your going to be handling all the time.

    Seam sealer

    Bitumen based seam sealer. Like you said, it looks like tar because basically it is. I'm sure it has various things in it but the same black goop that seals the cracks in the road, got turned into sheets for deadener, or spray for stone guard and noise reduction, or gooped through a squeezy nozzle for seams. It's the cheap kind that auto shops will carry or check with your paint supplier.

    ".. Hahahaha I'm a livin joke.." That's awesome to see. Car is going to be perfection when it's done. Wonder if that other box is back together and functional too?

    Engine bay rust

    Spray cans should be fine for the engine bay, just a bit expensive for the amount of coverage you get but probably cheaper/easier than setting up a compressor. I've never used the Eastwood stuff but I'm sure it's half decent. Most of their products are aimed at guys in the same position as you. I'd suggest going to your local bodyshop/auto paint supplier and get them to put together the gear you need. Cans can be tricky due to reactions between chemicals so it's best to ask the shop what's suitable and how much you will need to do the job.

    Engine bay rust

    The only difference I'd say to that is instead of etch, use ppg epoxy (or similar) after you sand the bay. It will permanently seal the old paint and bare metal at the same time and give you a consistent base layer to work up from. The stuff I use was called ppg 408 grey-green but it's had a name change that I can't remember the new code.
