high build primer
I understand. I tried high build primer and I found it created work for me.
I found it created more sanding to set up the finish. After playing around with that and epoxy, I ended up going back to the "old faithful" standard primer with glaze when I need it. I greatly admire your work and I'll bet it will be a jewel when you're done.

mostly you are seeing different colors in the high build primer.. I am using the small touch up gun.... and it creates some shadows and different over spray patterns as the container gets low. It does catch your attention in person also. you can see it in this photo
the horiziontal striping.....it looks like ripples but in reality is just overspray. its a high build primer and gets sanded away.

I worked some more on the front fenders today and the bonnet, tomorrow the doors and the front shroud where I recut it.....then everything should be ready for block sanding to a nice surface for painting.

You must have a good monitor and good eyes.I can't see any of that.

I doubt you are finished on the panels yet but I am seeing some unevenness and rippling, which is a little surprising with the level of your metal work. I know it is hard with sheet metal repair but I expect you have a plan. Please keep us posted.

|Loose Ctrl||This build is going to be better than new.I bet your body work is straighter and smoother than when it was fresh from the manufacturer.|

any exposed metal gets green se;f etching primer

well the creative juices were flowing this am fueled by a gift of a fork lift extender.....along with two pieces of a snow plow picked up off the road over the years, the base weighs about 125. all together about 210 lbs. the bead roller is bolted so it can still be used in the vise and the planishing hammer can get mounted on the stand also
the base 5/8" x 6 x 24" doubled up to 12"
and it works as planned

lets take on the 800 lb gorilla in the room.....if its not right just re do it. after all its just metal
see the crown on the near side
no balls no glory
SBC main cap
nice and tight
cool it off after the weld with compressed air

my wife has been watching the two grand children while the kids are at work, and it turns out that what we use to do easily like grocery shopping, cleaning, yard work etc now has taken on a whole different dimension and it has encroached upon my shop time.....oh well we will just have to adjust
lets take care of some areas
sand with a long board file
use the black primer as guide coat
any shiny metal gets self etching primer the final sanding will be done by hand
|05-03-2015 02:38 PM|
another couple of hours today.....it looks really good.
