It looks like u ground off the old paint?
I havent had any major problems other than what already there, if you are going to do some welding I would recommend do all of that first and than just before you start doing the body work strip it down. I had a hard time with chemical stripping cause there was 4-5 coats of paint on the body, so it was eaisier to sand it down, I didnt grind it I used 80 grit on a orbital sander.
