bodywork

It depends on the type of epoxy you use. If its dtm the its only useable only on cleans substates. ie: properly cleaned steel, frp, rigid pp and alluminum. Its because of the solvents that in its composition. Non - dtm epoxy can be sprayed over properly prepped clearcoat, basecoat, primer and e-coat with no degragation in the primer. As far as body work. those doors can be fixed but not worth the time to do it. the metal is already stretched and will require a large amount of heating pulling and shrinking to get it to the point of using a filler, thats if you want to spend the 40+ hours to work the metal .. Imo i'd replace them. The rest is workable and dont look to bad. I'd spray a 1 coat of dtm on the bare metal to keep it from flash rust since you still put filler over top of it. keep up the good work
