Altimat is correct.....NO LIQUIDS ON BODY FILLER. If you want a piece to have a glass like surface you need to use a high fill primer and sand that. I sand all my body filler with 80 grit and stop there. A few coats of primer and it is perfect. If you are looking for a factory finish there are paints available for that. I still prime my pieces and then apply the paint. If you want a high gloss finish the clear coat will be needed and depending on how well the clear coats lays out you might need to wet sand and buff.
thanatos....that is an excellent sanding pad. I buy those a dozen at a time. You can purchase rolls of sticky backed sand paper to apply to it or wrap a piece around it but the sticky works better. If you are not going to use the pad for a while remove the paper when you are finished with it. Paper left on the pad can detoriate and leve residure behind if left on the pad too long.
Thanks for the info sickvette.
cool guys.. took your advice.. it match completly perfect to the exsisting interior. texture and all.. will post pics when I get a chance
I make custom blocks for almost everything. I have cut up several of those into different sized blocks, but I prefer harder blocks for most work. Pieces of paint strring sticks work well on this little stuff. Those small 6" stainless rulers work well sanding up into tight corners with self-adhesive paper on them too. I even use pieces of hacksaw blades as bondo files.
this is why I idolize you...Originally Posted by Altimat
