    Epoxy Primer before or after body filler thoughts….

    SPI epoxy sands like 2k. Many of us SPI users will use the epoxy as our 2k with poly. The Valiant is just poly and epoxy. Make a strong chip resistant base

    Epoxy Primer before or after body filler thoughts….

    Not sure what the question is? If you sand through the epoxy when working the filler you just spritz on a bit more Epoxy to cover it up and more filler. It won’t be a linear process trust me!

    Epoxy Primer before or after body filler thoughts….

    Epoxy first. It is what seals the metal. Filler on metal can get moisture behind it (think rust pinholes). Of course here in Az you would likely never notice! Make sure you follow any recommendations by the epoxy manufacturer on windows or sanding grit for adhesion for the filler over epoxy...

    Door Alignment Question

    Hey Ron. Hard to say without seeing the Bermuda Triangle area at the cowl/fender/door. Once you get that area right then just rotate the back up and down. Typically have to go too high so the weight pulls it down the the right level.

    Cracked rear quarter from torque??

    Man are you sure that area has any metal? That looks like it was just filler. That should be solid welded in metal in that area.

    Carwell Products for Rust Prevention?

    Sorry, I just don't see how that is possible. Have you ever tried to media blast a seriously rusted piece of metal? I would agree it could be possible for flash rush or surface rust maybe but not rust that is eating away at the metal.

    Carwell Products for Rust Prevention?

    No such thing as a rust converter, the chemistry does not work..... blasting all the rust out and epoxy primer is the only permeant way to stop rust.

    69 Super Bee Vinyl top installation 101

    Helpful hint. After the 3rd one I learned a trick. I now use the wife’s clothes steamer to heat and soften the material to stretch it and lay it down smooth.

    How do I mount the Fratzog emblems?

    Screw in the middle and the alignment pin. Should have been 2 holes in the top if it had one before.

    Out of sight paint input appreciated

    A high end restoration/show car will use filler in the trunk and on the underside to make it as smooth and flat as the exterior so it is nothing out of the ordinary.

    Out of sight paint input appreciated

    I epoxy primed mine then skim coated it with glaze to fill in the pits and sanded smooth then final coat of epoxy and then paint. It does not take a lot of time since you are not looking for a mirror finish. A DA with 220 gets most of it smooth.
