Talking metal work

Have a 20gauge panel that i welded some brackets to. This warped the panel a bit and i tried to grind it smooth. But now, marks are showing thru the paint. What is the best way to fix this?

Thanks,

JB

If they are pretty good marks I would use body spot putty and block sand and then use a high solids filler primer and block sand again. You may have to prime and block sand twice. I got ahead of myself, Grind or sand your paint off down to metal first.

Something I use in the bodyshop is some stuff called evercoat metalglaze. Its a 2 part stuf like bondo it comes with hardener.It comes in a pint bottle.It flows out real good and sands easily with 180 grit.You can put it right over the paint , but scuff the paint with 180 or 220 first. That will give it something to stick to.Then smooth it out and primer.

I agree with big dreams, you are going to need some kind of filler in there to fill in your marks and smoth your part out again. I would advise against using spot putty, it is just a thick form of lacquer primer which will shrink after time.

Ya, i personally would go with a good quality two component putty . Spot putty shrinks after time.

I use a product called Metal 2 Metal, its a two component puddy that contains aluminum, works good, a bit hard to sand, but it works

The metal glaze will do what you want it to do and will not shrink. It is also easy to work with.
