Basic bodywork refresher

I'm about to do some minor bodywork and paint on mty Tahoe.
Basically the steps are.
1 sand off paint and feather it past damage
2 Clean with wax and grease remover
3 Spray epoxy primer on the panels
4 Apply bondo and shape it
5 feather it with a D/A
6 Spray epoxy primer again
7 Scuff with scotchbrite
8 basecoat
9 clearcoat.
I did some work on my Tbird years ago. I have pretty much all the tools. I just want to make sure of the steps again
Thanks
Mike

Well I would start off washing it with was and grease remover to get the panel clean and from there I would need to know what kind of repair you are doing as to say what you need to do from here

First step, pressure wash, with plain water.
Second step, scrub with nylon brush, any areas close to where you are doing repair.
I use Dawn , diluted in a spray bottle.
Third step, Wax and grease remover,
Then carry on with your list.

Basically the car was gently sideswiped. My son slid into another car with it and it's basically the snow car now but I want it to look halfway decent. I was going to dolly some of the damage out and put some Bondo on it paint and go. After this I was going to fix a dent in my '62 Tbird's door and wanted to get some practice before doing so.
