Cool, I don't want to hijack this thread but my step son has a rather unusual pet, a Grey Wolf. Ya gotta love the K9's to have one of them.

Do you have access to a uni-spotter? That would help you immensely to pull that crease.

i dont and its actually not as deep as it looks , that spot onthe right witht he round circle is actually the deepest , but its less then what i had on the rear qaurter panel

the more and more i look at the paint on the car the more and more i think im going to strip the entire car. im thinking 3 days before it goes to get primed im going to pick up a case of beer invite some friends over and start handing out sanders/sand paper lol

I know that striping a car is a lot of work, but, let me ask you a few questions.

How much money have you got in the engine?
How much are you spending on new body panels?
How much is the material going to cost?
How much more is it going to cost to strip the car?

You know where I'm going with this, I see it all to often where people spend a lot of money on other things and less on some things...now, I'm not going to say that if you don't strip the car that the paint job will fail...what I will say is that if the car is striped, you will know exactly what you have underneath...your call.

Oh, if the scrape along the side of the car isn't that bad, (less than 3/8 of an inch deep) filler should be fine...I hate saying that...I like to rough it our the best I can, is there any way you can get at it from the inside?

i tried to acess the backside of it but theres no way without taking all the pwer window stuff.
i ended up using fille ron it last night but i accidently wetn a lil light on the hardner so it too a while to fully cure , and ran out of daylight befor ei could sand it

if i told u how lil i have in the car u wouldnt belive me , but all in total i think i have around 1,500 bucks + the 450 i paid for the car , and it looks like the only panel im replacing is the hood.

let me ask u this if i strip the car could i put on a light coat of rattle can primer to help protect the metal until i take it over to get expoxy primed, or does all the rattle can primer have to come off before the epoxy primer

For the Epoxy to work properly, the rattle can primer would need to come off...the best thing to do is keep it dry, and give it a quick scuff before you put the epoxy on it.

Sounds like you got a great deal on the car...that motor, even if you had it, somebody had to have put money into it?

i rebuilt the engine with good parts i had laying around , other then that i know how to shop around for deals on parts say for example the fuel injectors are brand new and retail for just under 600 bucks , i paid 250$'s for the set, the intercoler and plumbing i picked up for 100 bucks from a fellow local board member , etc etc etc

so between stuff like that and no labor charges i built it cheap

ok so no rattle primer going on the car then

Sounds good and happy to hear that you are able to build a car with minimal cash outlay...perhaps what I should ask is would you put junk into your engine?...Why leave potential junk on the outside of your car?

Rattle can primer is a sponge at best and would need to come off...sorry my friend.
