if you shoot two coats of clear then let it cure you can sand it and shoot two more coatsand really get a nice finish

Quarter Panel Repair 1965 Pontiac Tempest

Getting ready to do this as soon as my new garage is built. Lower Quarter Panels are in need of replacing. I have the 65' GTO quarters. I have Duro-Bond also. Trunk also needs panel work. I am open to any suggestions that anyone would have on these type of repairs. To welders, can I use a wire feed welder on the trunk? Never welded before.

Harbor Freight makes an air 3 inch buffer. Mine has worked well for the 8-10 years I have had it. I think I gave 40 dollars for it approximately.

Trucknut I use foam pads. They come in different grades from heavy cutting down to finish. I switched from 3M to Meguiar's and really like the finish and product performance. One up side to Meguiar's is that AutoZone carries their compounds. That means alot on Sunday when my favorite paint shop is closed and I run out. I run my Makita buffer at about 3 or 4. Also, they make 3 inch foam pads that are great for getting into tight areas and reducing the risk of burning or catching your buffer on something. Just finished a black 69 Firebird. Came out great.

deadbodyman I'm finishing up a super straight black job ,I'm getting a little nervous with this one as the time for buffing draws closer.I used to be pretty good but I no longer concider myself an expert its been too long since I had to buff at this level...
I may have to start a thread to reeducate myself...and get some new glasses.

69 widetrack Hey Mike...I use only foam pads and a couple of drops of water on the foam keeps them from drying out and it helps keep the polish from drying out as well. That's why I use foam, wool, totally different story.

Swirl remover....I hand polish with a micro fiber towel...and a small area, it drying up is a PITA.

deadbodyman Hey Ray, How do you keep them moist? Buffing sucks and I'm always looking for something to make it easier...
My biggest problem is the swirl remover drying and smuging on the car what a PITA
