I want to start this blog by letting everyone know I have no idea what I'm doing but wanted to share in my experience with taking care of the bodywork on my 1964 Chevy Truck. (not the one in this image but I do want this light olive paint color)
From my understanding you have four major stages
NEWBIE SUPPLY ORDER FROM EASTWOOD
Get down to the bare metal is my first step (no rust, no paint, less issues)
PRE Prep offered by Eastwood to clean the metal of any residue
EPOXY Primer to seal the metal (protect from flash rusting) - GRAY
FILLER aka Bondo aka Contour which you don't want to mix a ton since you have only about three minutes to use but you don't want the filler to be more than 1/8" thick which is about the thickness of a .25 quarter edge. Obviously use spreaders (you can clean your spreaders with that PRE Prep). Also the quick sheets Eastwood offers is another way to clean up your work area very quickly.
BLOCK SAND (start around 36, move to 80 then possibly hit it with 180 grit sand paper)
PREPPING (220 grit or higher number)
2k High Build Urethane Primer - BLACK
SOUND DEADNER needs to be installed on floor and firewall.
PAINTING (Olive Green)
