Ed

Ed, you will be fine using filler over the cured epoxy. rough it up with some 180 where you are going to apply filler if it has passed the recoat window and you'll be fine. When you get you filler work done, spray two more coats of epoxy and you'll be in business.

Hi Ed, It seems like this thread is pretty well tapped out. After all, 16 pages! Maybe you should start your own thread. Good luck with your truck!

Getting ready to strip sections on the exterior of my 1965 F-100. Spraying
over bare metal with Epoxy Primer after prepping. I have been told that after epoxy dries
I can do small plastic filler work, and it will stick better?

Ray from Canada, You Rock!

I just read all 15 pages of this post. Very good information. It's really unbelievable how much time and effort it took Kelly and especially Ray to answer all the questions! My hat is off to you guys for all your help. The painting process got lost in pm's between you two but I totally understand. Great job!

carolinacustoms Looks good friend Glad everything turned out well for you.

aykhan90 The fender should be an even closer match (at least that is what I think). The hood took the brunt of the compressor mishap. And originally I thought the hood would be the easiest to paint since it is mostly flat but didn't turn out that way. I think the amount of coverage needed for the hood threw me off a bit.

I will try to take a picture of the comparison between the fender and the door so you can have an idea of how it looks.

69 widetrack So then the hood to the fender color is factory to what you painted...color looks quite close in the picture...but yes check and let me know.

I understand that the weekend was hectic...I completely understand, and it's one of those situations if I would have been able to be beside you, the compressor issue wouldn't have played the part it did...after a while you learn to listen to air pressures probably more than looking at the gauge and would have heard the drop in pressure...but all in all...you did exceptionally well.

aykhan90 Oh sorry forgot to answer the color question.

I haven't checked the color yet. The weekend was pretty hectic so I forgot. I'll check it out today.

aykhan90 I have more than realized why they charge so much. The past few weeks have been very labor intensive and I have a profound respect for people who do body work. Great experience. Very tiring and fun!

Thanks a lot.

I am ready to get onto the next step as soon as possible.

69 widetrack Congratulations Asfand, Great job....now you know why body shops charge as much as they do...LOL...The fender looks great, I can see a bit of a run....but, we can knock that out fairly easily.

Bumper looks good as well, just a bit of clean up and back on the car. Have you checked the color from the fenders you painted to the door?

Again, good job Asfand. Let me know when and I'll walk you through getting rid of that run.
