  • A quick question...

    I just finished with the bondo and filling the pin holes last night. It's looking great, thanks to everyone's tips and alot of patience. My only questions is do I wash the bondo before priming? I finished sanding with 1000 grit and I'm not sure if I should get it wet.

    Thanks

    It's always good to wash/clean the part from finger oil, grease, dust and all other $hit. Get a primer can and read the label for instruction. But usually it will said "Clean it"

      Its not that imparitive that you clean it prior to priming. Paint, however, is a different story. If you dont degrease prior to paint the finish will look like a golf ball. Primer wont matter because you can sand the primer. You dont need to wet sand the bondo. You dont even need to wet sand the primer unless your going for a perfectly smooth serface like the body of your car. Dashes generally have a rough serface to them so you wouldnt want to wet sand it, unless your going for that look.

          1000 grit is way too fine for filler. Work filler with 36-220 grit, primer with 180 - 500 grit, and anything finer that that I just use for color-sanding and buffing paint. Remember primer and paint fill sandscratches, They need to be there for adhesion.

            alcohol pads....wipe it down with alcohol pads and you should be ready to prime!

            that and what altimat said is very true as well!

              yeah i should have mentioned that as well. Before you prime, rough it up with some 220. Then youll be ready to go.
