Need advise...I've been painting for a few years now but this is my first frame off - full restoration. The customer made the mistake of having the entire truck sandblasted. Now I have a clean body to work with, but it is pitted form the blast pretty bad. What would be the best way to prep the bare metal, pits, etc. Thanks for the help! :dunno:

use a high build epoxy or polyester primer---these will be "two" part primers so you will have a harderner------you also might look into an "etching primer" first and the the other-----there is also a really thick primer which is actually liquid filler that you can use----------good luck

thats really good...but would it be best to change the required panel before priming...like I dont know if by pits he meant little wholes in the sheet metal...cuz those panels would have to be change...or repair whit sheet metal...

after that the 2 base epoxy primer is a killer ;) ...i will do that to my ride when ready to restore...

Lowriderlife- you look like a really OG painter...candy, flakes, patherns...

do you have a step by step, or a technic on getting started...just after all the metal from the car is repaired...

;)
