Re: Anyone have advice reg. preping car for new paint?? (MrLime)
Thanks guys for the comments. I know taking it to a pro shop would be best but I don't have mucho cash. I just thought preping it would be fun and an experience. if it looks bad, I'll just get a pro shop do add another couple of coats of primer etc...
Right know I have sended most of the car with 300 sandpaper. Next is 400. Finally, adding the primer. Just before I add any primer though, I want to add rust killer acid in certain sections so the rust never comes back.
The undercoating... some said it locks in moisture. How could it do that? The car is dry and the undercoating would add a barrier, wouldn't it? What else could I use besides PROP15? PROP15 is a rust killer isn't it? Anyway, after the primer, what do I use? A sealer? What do you mean, is it paint? Or a special kind of sealant before the paint?
I need all the help thanks. Frank
PS: I plug up my holes with fiberglass. It doesn't warp my panels and is solid like a rock. A bit of primer on to and it perfect. I plan to cover my side round marker holes with it.
