Whats up with all the people posting pics of work being done to their rides and they have body filler over paint. All I can say is lazy hacks! :uh: :scrutinize:

I beleave whats going on is that they are sanding it down to metel, but after applying the filler and sanding, it feathers up to the edge of the paint, making it seem like the filler is over the paint, but not realy... :dunno:

Nope, anyhow, its still unacceptable IMO. if that was the case then they are still applying too much filler and need to rethink their repair procedures. I know in the shop I work in its all about qualityand this is unacceptible, now there are times when this situation is unavoidable, I can attest to that. But when the filler is bridging uncatalyized substrates your just asking for problems.
