What Next??

I have everything covered in Epoxy primer. I have done 90% of the body work and should be able to finish the rest the first part of the week. After that is done I plan on touching up the epoxy where I sanded through doing the bondo. I presume I might as well epoxy over the bondo also?

After that is done, do I need to spray 2K build primer on the jambs and interior pieces? I am thinking some of the areas will be nearly impossible to block sand. Or should I just spray color and clear over the Epoxy in those areas and skip the 2K build? This is not going to be a show car by any stretch of the imagination. Simply my kids daily driver.

Also, I have the doors, hood, trunk lids and fenders all off. Should I spray the build primer on the outside first, then after that, base and clear the jambs/interior, and assemble? Or should I paint the jambs/interior first then assemble and then do the 2K build primer on the outside after the jambs are done?

Thanks guys

Yes, I normally at this point is just put one coat over all the panels that were worked on.

The only reason you need primer is to sand the body work areas.
So if no work was done in there as far as filler, just paint over the epoxy and skip the 2K.

The million dollar question! That is how I would do it.

Thanks Barry. I am curious why you feel it would be better to do the 2K build on the exterior panels before assembling. Just to try to be as clear as possible I listed the options out a little better below, and added option C. I was guessing method B before your post.



A
1. Spray Build Primer on exterior panels
2. Sand Build Primer
3. Spray B/C on jambs and interior
4. Assemble doors etc. onto car
5. Spray B/C on Exterior

B.
1. Spray B/C on jambs and interior
2. Assemble doors etc. onto car
3. Spray Build Primer on exterior
4. Sand Build Primer
5. Spray B/C on exterior

C.
1. Assemble doors etc. onto car
2. Spray B/C on jambs and interior
3. Spray Build Primer on exterior
4. Sand Build Primer
5. Spray B/C on Exterior

D. ???

I only said that because I don't know how experience you are and was concerned about getting primer over spray in your newly paint jambs.
Thats the only reason I suggested it.
