Elbows are getting lubed as we speak. I'm impatient and can't wait to get to the hardware store. Belt grinder did quick work. Now I'm in the process of body putty filling holes.

Re: Paint Primer cracking!

Don't forget - body putty may shrink a bit, depending what quality you bought.
Just a tip.

I know that on old Corvette bodies the DP 90 epoxy primer seals them very well and protects the new expensive paint jobs from having issues. If you know a body man I'd bet he would spray your stock at the same time he's spraying another car.

Re: Paint Primer cracking!

Thanks guys for the help. I found out that the Krylon ultra flat camo paint will go right over the blue metallic w/o any issues. So I left the primer on the spots that didn't have problems, and used the Krylon for the spots that did. She aint pertty, but she'll be effective.

Re: Paint Primer cracking!

Doctor Vette... I love it.........

I just had a flashback to my 66 Stingray Convertible, 427/390, Milano Red, tan leather interior, cast aluminum wheels with knock off's and off roads. All the girls loved it and I loved all the girls......

I wrapped her around a utility pole many years ago. Oh well. Snot bodies don't mend well. My next ride will be a Cadillac CTS with the 550 and a 6 speed. Lugs your ass in style and goes like a scalded dog......

Far as body filler goes, I'd be using 3m glazing compound for minor imperfections.

I sort of liked the 'textured' look in the first picture. Better grip........

I know that DP 90 is popular as a primer and sealant, for example.
Depends on the type of solvent in the primer he uses and what material is left on the stock. If he strips it back to the gelcoat, then he could use most types of primers.

If he has a buddy who does auto body work, that buddy probably has access to a water based primer/sealer.......water won't penetrate the existing material and cause it to swell like many other types of solvent will.......that is why I suggested a water based primer/sealer.
