durabuild primer and glazing putty

My car will have a lot of body filler. Do I need to use a glazing putty since I'm planning on using evercoats durabuild primer?
Thanks,
Scott

Depends on what finished look your after when the color has been applied.
Block sand the body first then look for voids. Fill primer will only cover
so much. I'd stay away from glazing putty "nitro-stain" the process takes
too long, see if you can find a product named "Body Icing " I found it works
much better then other spot/glazing puttys.

Go here >scroll down to the 6th product Body Icing http://www.autobodysupply.net/store/...1-F106322B3D14

I would also stay away from a glazing putty, if we are talking about the NitroStain product. My experience is it sands way too hard and on top of a easier sanding filler it is tough to get a good edge you cannot feel without cutting into the underlying primer.

Your Evercoat Durabuild primer should do what you are after. A couple of real heavy coats will build up a fairly thick surface you can block sand and will pretty much cover all but the most severe faults.

First let me make clear, we are talking "technologies" NOT brands. Evercoat is a GREAT company that makes GREAT products. "Dura build" and "Glazing putty" are lacquer and are JUNK. They are the bottom of the technology chain and are kept in the product line for the very few customers that still use it.

Use Evercoats "Metal Glaze" (2K polyester) for any minor filling and choose a polyester primer like Evercoats Featherfill "GII" for a quality primer. HOWEVER, this is a polyester primer and is VERY high filling. Do you really need it, it is not used often in my book.

It is more likely that you need a urethane or epoxy primer. They go on WAY smoother and require much less sanding prior to paint.

I ordered the featherfill G2 because of how much body filler and slight imperfections the body has. I just want it to have a nice surface and figure the high build is the best way to ensure that. Remember, I'm a novice so I need to have a little room for error. Thanks for all of the great info. I won't get any glazing putty. I'm planning on shooting a single stage enamel, probably silver without metallic.
Thanks,
Scott

Wouldn't silver without metallic be "gray"?

I've used Evercoat's "polyester glazing putty" it sands easy and is very strong. I like it . I have a habit, when I find something I like, I stay with it. I don't switch around much I've been using Evercoats body filler products for years. I especially like the "Kitty Hair"
