Don't put any polyester fillers over etch primer, sand the etch primer off of the areas that need filler work and apply your filler to bare metal. Or strip off all of that etch primer and applt two coats of epoxy primer followed by polyester filler where needed. Stay away from any 1K acrylic primer surfacers, use urethane or polyester surfacers for best results. JMO

Do not put filler over Etch Primer. that's a no-no.
Over epoxy is ok.

filler on bare metal
Hey guys the way i was taught when i did my time as a panel beater was to apply the filler on the bare metal then prime or primerfiller otherwise the filler would only be stickin to the primer and not actually bond to the surfase properly and thats the way ive been doin it for 16/17 years and never had a prob and have seen blokes put it over primer and fall out taking the primer with it just leaving a clean surfase behid caus eit didnt bond properly but anyway as they say each to there own have a good one all

|baddbob||John, cool tip- I'll have to give that a try. There always seems to be a few I need to go after with a spot blaster or a small burr bit, never though about using a broken drill bit. interesting.|

When you have a small area with rust pits, you can use a small broken drill bit in your drill motor. Held at an angle, it will carve out rus. Much cleaner than sand blasting.

Spot sand blaster...
Eastwoods sells this really inexpensive spot snad blaster. It is great for getting those little pits and areas where rust settles. it only cost around $20 for it and is well worth it.

Flash rusting after rinsing metal
I've had the same problem too. Instead of rinsing with water, I've wiped the metal down with metal cleaner like Prepsol. The idea of painting over metal that has flash rusted seems counter intuitive to me.

Apologies folks, agreed; fibreglass fillers are not waterproof, i was more refering towards the epoxy fibreglass repair kits such as used with the fibre matting and 2 pot resins for repairing fibreglass car bodies and boats- i think these are waterproof as i have filled some holes in hulls without topcoating them immediately before they went back in the water and didn't have any probs. For steel panel work i normally use standard body filler which definitely ain't waterproof and becuase we have a wet climate here i often put a coat of laquer over the primer if the area is not to be painted straight away to keep the repair dry.

Heck Brian you dont need the MSDS, look on the can!
A few years ago there was a fight on the chevelle site about Duraglass being water proof.
One thing I learned as a small child, you dont pick fights you cant win.
So the next day I bought a can of Duraglass, took a pic of the label and posted it on chevelles. Low and behold TALC is the MAIN active ingredient. Score one for Eric
