Painting Primer

Page 1 | Page 2

There were a number of stages to this component - epopxy primer, bondo, hi-build primer and then blocking, and finally spraying the primer/sealer. Before blowing on epoxy primer I first sanded the whole car in 120 grit and washed every surface. Of course, I found a few small holes needing repair but overall things look pretty good. Once it was painted I remounted the doors and began the process of using bondo to smooth out some of the uneveness in the finish. There will be much less bondo on this car when we're done than when I first got it. When the bondo stage was done the car was painted with a hi-build polyester filler. This will provide a great base for colour. And as of today, most of the blocking is done. Perhaps one more full day! The inside of the doors and the hoods are now in primer sealer. The final stage is to go over everything very carefully and fix any flaws before it gets its colour paint job. And now, in June of 2015 it is ready for paint - Casablanca White! And finally off to Fraser River Paint and Body for painting.
