body prep
#1
Alright guys I have learned fast here so I am going to post this prior to doing much. As most know I am working on my rear patch panels and fenders, but I know this primer I have on her is going to need to come off because it has been on there for about two years and I am starting to fix little areas that are in need. I am also trying to fix the top where that vinyl was there. I am looking for tips tricks to make sure that once a area is done I can paint it with product x and not have to worry about it. I still have a long road but there are a lot of guys and gals on here that will steer me in the right direction.

I have a small low spot in my front bumper and was wondering if I could use my evercoat the same thing I am using to fill in body errors. Thanks ahead of time. Anything will put me farther than I am now. I am doing this on my pho[/font]ne so sorry

The best way to prep & forget is to strip to bare metal..(if you use paint stripper it must be neutralized) Then sand with 80 grit on the d.a. Epoxy prime with spi epoxy primer.. http://www.southernpolyurethanes.com/
http://www.southernpolyurethanes.com/tec...Manual.pdf Follow their instructions for the rest ! I have panels that have been epoxy primered with spi sitting for over a year with no issues at all..When it comes time to do the body work just scratch with 180..Do your body work RIGHT ON TOP of the epoxy..Then recoat with epoxy..Do the entire car this way..When the entire car is finished scratch with 180 hit the entire car with 2k..Block then paint..

Okay Q I will be asking alot of questions, Ill be ordering the primer today, but I can still start filling in alot of the body prior to spraying it, right. I want to use this stuff at the end.

Also with your viedo do you have body application and painting on your site? Thanks

I think you are supposed to prime the bare metal, and do the filler on top of that, then prime again. If not the metal below the body filler will rust. Do you want to do the job twice? That's the question.

Yeah, I'm not a body guy. Just going on what I've been told be several people, that any moisture in the filler will rust the metal it is applied to. Thanks Pappy.

filler over paint yes not the right way..Filler over epoxy primer...Filler is porous & absorbs moisture..Do a quick test..smear a skim coat of filler on a piece of bare metal..Let harden..put in a bucket of water for a day or 2..remove..let sit a week.. chip off filler..See whats underneath..RUST..

Nope..bare metal..epoxy primer...THAN filler...than epoxy over filler..than 2k high build..than seal with reduced epoxy..Or you can just paint
