I have used it for years, great stuff, use a sealer over it and you can cover it with about anything.

Works great- very compatible- sands easily and fills minor imperfections and sand scratches.

Thanks Guy's for the thumbs up. One other Q, Can I use it for my primary over bare metal, or do I have to use an etching primer. Moisture is not a problem being I live in the desert...I've had my coupe in bare all summer and not a speck of rust anywhere..Thanks again for the response....GlennK

You'd have to check specs on the can- I assume it's okay- I have been using sealer over any primer and have been much more pleased with the results.

Thanks Dragon J: Thats the way I'm going to go. By the way, What color Blue is that on the J? I'm looking at GM indigo Blue for my coupe. The J is as good looking as I've ever seen.....Thanks again.........GlennK

feather fill

Hi, yes,I am very familiar with featherfill. First ,no,it can't be used directly over bare metal or you WILL have adhesion failure.I personally would sand bare metal with # 80 sandpaper(D A ,or other)Second ,use a good metal conditioner .They not only clean ,they also chemically condition the metal .JUST BE SURE TO FOLLOW LABEL DIRECTIONS! Third, use a good quality etching primer , or,better yet an epoxy primer/sealer over the bare metal.Then you can apply the primer ,but personally I've had better luck with Slick Sand ,also made by Evercoat. Very similar material ,but Slick Sand is not as porous as Feather Fill ,and Slick Sand is able to be wet sanded ,Feather fill is NOT . Then seal & paint as you would any other primer. Hope that helps !

Evercoat web site

Jeesh, Now I am getting corn fused. I just found the web site for Evercoat and it says that featherfill is good for over bare metal. Slick sand also. Now what do I do? I don't want to have to do this again but I've been getting so many conflicting responses. One guy told me to just use red oxide primer and thenseal it and it would do just fine....HELP. ......GlennK

Feather Fill

GlennK ,sorry, I wasn't trying to confuse you ,only offering MY personal experiences with Feather Fill .Yes, you can use it over bare metal ,but my experience is that you will have much better luck using etch primer, or epoxy(my favorite)under it! Just as there are many roads to a place, there are many routes you can take to YOUR goal .Being that we are talking about it over the 'net ,and NOT looking at, or touching your car, it is next to impossible to give you a solid answer on the best route to take. My advice ---have someone with paint experience look it over with you ,and give you THEIR honest opinion .There HAS to be street rod clubs in your area , and street rodders LOVE to help other rodders---just ask!! Good Luck!!!!!

Hey Glenn- hope you get it sorted out- lots of different opinions on the 'net but when guys say they've had experiences with stuff that's better than whats on the can! I myself have used it over a primer so cannot vouch for results over bare metal. To reiterate, it IS great for surface filling and I've had no problems with it as far as adhesion. As for color of my 'J it is Thistle Purple Metallic- a Ford color from the '90s- Mustangs I believe. (more pics in the old album!!) Good Luck-

Dragon J: I was afraid you were going to say it was purple, Color identification is not one of my strong points. It looks good any

way......GlennK F 1 Thanks for your time and knowledge... I'll have to look into that epoxy primer for my base and then I'll try the Feather fill.......GlennK
