I am not sure what to use on new metal as a base for everglass filler? I have put backer patches in place and spot welded them they are abraided and clean, but do I need to coat the metal before using the epoxy filler?

I'm not sure what your asking...but...first off, your patches should not only be spot welded in place, they should be welded in completely, ground smooth and than you can apply filler. There are fiberglass fillers, plastic fillers and metal (aluminum) based fillers that can be used over top your welded in patch. You can use an Epoxy primer over top your bare metal and then apply the filler (this would be the method of choice). Block sand your filler smooth and then either use an Epoxy primer that has sandable properties or a 2K primer over the entire panel.

I hope this answers your question.
