    So after owning my 72 charger for almost 3 years, have finally been in the house long enough to settle down and work on the car. The pictures we took shows us working on the interior of the car.

    Exterior:

    Wow, lookin good.

    I am just about to start the interior of my car and I was wondering what you did to prep the floors and the product you used before putting in the sound dampening material.

    Thanks,

    Dennis

    I just sanded down any surface rust on the floorboard. I used rustoleum paint from homedepot. There's a good article about using this kind of paint in Hot Rod during the last couple of months. Was fairly staight forward a decent price, I think around $20 for a quart of primer and paint.
