Questions about Evercoat Feather Fill primer.

if i use the Evercoat Feather Fill primer do i have to go over it with anything else?

is there any better primer thats like it that will fill scratches?

will it fill in the scratches from 80 grit sandpaper or should i go finer?

is there a set time before i need to paint the body parts if i use this, because i dont get a lot of time to work on my truck with work and all, so i wont be getting to paint any time soon.

last of all can it be sprayed through a spray gun with out wrecking it?
thanks Tim

Can it fill 80 grit scratches, heck it will fill 36 grit scratches with only a few coats!

Evercoat never got back to me when I asked them about recoating it. Evercoats "Finish sand" has recommendations in the catalog for top coating, but no mention of it on the Feather fill description.

There is no time you will have to get the paint on, you will just sand it before painting. As far as the gun, it won't hurt anything, but it needs a BIG tip to shoot it, like 2.3.

If you have not already bought it, up grade to the slick sand.

It is always best to apply this product over epoxy vs bare metal For long term corrosion and durability and when done blocking this product spray a coat of 2K primer for final sanding or epoxy over it before painting for best long term results.
You need to remember this is a spray body filler with a little polyester resin in it.

Must have been a Google search.2004???
There is NO problem with G2 filling an 80 gt. scratch. I do it ALL the time and POLYprimers DO NOT shrink like 2K's so, Don't fret about it.
36 IS a drastic cut and for the "old timers" IMO. Todays fillers work just fine over 80 AND on TOP of EPOXY.
Evercoat recommends just 80 and thats what I been doing for years with NO issues at all.

2004 LOL
Featherfill G2 gets my vote, and I agree 80 grit scratches are no problem for it. Shoot a urethane surfacer oor epoxy over it for your final sanding before paint.

question on featherfill

Going to be priming and painting my 1969 ford truck. Will need a tough black paint over it due to extreme weather conditions here. Lots of discussions with body folks over primers: primarily Valspar poly primers vs. Featherfill. I'm keeping the truck, probably for quite some time. It's not a show truck, but it's my favorite ride, and it should look good. Don't have money to pour into paint, but you get the picture. Any advice??
thanks, C

I agree with poly primer for blocking over 80 grit sand scratches. Poly primer does not shrink like 2K does. I would do a very good smooth blocking with poly primer then top coat with several good coats of 2K. Be advised however that if you have scratches before you top coat with 2K, that the 2K may over time shrink into those scratches.

On the featherfill question

Wouldn't you sand it finer than 80 before priming it? If you can prime over 80 grit, what would you suggest to use over Featherfill G2 as a sealer? Sorry, haven't painted for quite some time, could use the advice.

I agree apply a skim coat of 2k putty then block with 180 grit and apply 2-3 coats of urethane primer

You shouldn't have this problem if you're using good quality 2K primer, none of that $20/gallon crap. We use it on machinery, not on cars.

How big is the car?

How many coats?

How much of the car are you spraying (Jambs/firewall/dash)???

These are all things you need to know but, a gallon should do it, per label.

66 dodge coronet so I would call it a full sized car. I would not do the jambs etc., just the body. A gallon should do it huh? And this product replaces high build primer?
