Body filler question

Ok I always wondered about this, maybe someone can help me... When you do filler work, do you use wax grease remover before primer? When i have done filler work , I like to run my hand over the part to make sure its level, but I got to thinkin what about the oil from your hands. I just dont want any adhesion problems. how long does it normally take for wax and grease remover to evaporate from the area?

I have NEVER used a surface cleaner on plastic filler and NEVER had a problem. What you do is NOT contaminate it. Don't sand it while eating a bacon cheeze burger.

After I have rubbed my hands over a panel to check smoothness (and I feel the panel is ready), I just give it one last, light pass with the sand paper to remove any trace oils. Others may do things differently.

Thanks,

Same here, never use w&G remover to wipe down bodyfiller, never had a problem. I only times I normally use it is if the car has been waxed before doing any work (very seldom) and to wipe down before painting.

I have done it both ways, w&g remover and no w&g remover. Never had a problem with either. If you use w&g remover make sure it is absolutely dry before the application of filler.

I do a quick wipe with a damp cloth just to take off any excess dust or dirt that may still be on the part. You will see greasy finger prints as you wipe if there are any. If i suspect that there may be something there that i don't like then a 50/50 isopropyl/water wipe is in order.

Grease and Wax removers cause more problems than they solve
