Me thunks ur all rong!!

The RIGHT way to do it is forget the stinking, nasty, no count body filler and learn to metalfinish EVERYTHING.
Do yourselves a favor and say this to yourself as you go to sleep each night for a week!
BODY FILLER SUCKS!

The one and only time I saw body filler applied directly over Vari-Prime self etch primer, It blew right off after it was blocked. The guy sanded the etch primer first, probably with 80grit, but when he went to blow off the dust after blocking, the filler blew off in big sheets. One thing you guys need to keep in mind, is that all this crap we do in the production/collision body shops day in and day out isn't the BEST way. It's the FASTEST way. Walk into a really good restoration shop and your heads will spin!! They don't practice production shop methods. I'm so sick of working in a body shop I can't stand it!! Can you tell??? Low quality standards set by the collision industry drives me nuts! Not that we cut that many corners where I work, but I am subjected to it constantly.
Boy! This one sure swerved, didn't it!!!

Slow down!

Randy, Randy, Randy!!!!!!!!!!!!

Slow down! Were trying to get past the "rattle can paint job", the "bodyfiller over acid etch" and is that "$50 gun as good as the $600 gun"
We will get there! Keep your pants on!

Barry, I posted this for you last night, not sure if you read it.

I should have titled the topic differently, It's too closely titled the one I posted just a few days ago.
You asked me a few weeks ago about copying an existing part without harming the paint. This post should answer that for you.
