Just need verification on procedure please

I have searched high and low and I guess my search button skills just suck. I am looking for the correct general procedure in doing body work.

First off, I have a 67 Bonneville that needs tons of work and now that I have some time would like to tackle it. I am a total newbie but wanted to at least attempt the work myself.

1. Take the car down to baremetal and do all the rust replacement and repair.
2. Lay down epoxy
3. Do filler work
4. Spray with epoxy
5. Spray with 2k primer

I know there are more details to each one but just need to know if I am going in the right direction. Am I to spray the metal BEFORE doing any metal work to keep rust from occurring or just do the metal work and then clean up all the panels and then spray?

Most hobby projects set a spell between times to work on them so i say go ahead and epoxy before doing the metal work to keep the rust buggars at bay during the project. life has a way of getting in the way of our projects you see..

Thanks for the response. I've had this car for 5 years and it's say every single one of those days with the exception of 2. 1 when I finally got a new motor in it and drove it home and 2 when the transmission died on me and i towed it home

Why not do one panel at a time. Get it perfect , primed , and then do the next. Start on something small and low instead of the most obvious like the hood. Then by the time you get to the "show" panels you'll have had some "practice" and be in better "control"

Yeah im going to do that. I guess the real question is if I take one panel down to metal, do I spray it with epoxy prior to doing the metal work or do i do the welding and replacing THEN spray it?

This is some good advice.start with a fender or a door so you can remove it and make the work easier.

Body Work........

Hi,i would not strip the whole car,before doing body work,cut out the rust,do the rust repair on one panel,THEN strip that panel to bare metal,epoxy prime that fender (or whatever) then go on to the next place rust repair is needed. repair,then epoxy prime..do it this way,and the flash rust wont get ahead of you...
