    I am restoring a 72 Opel GT and have stripped the car to bare metal. I have a half dozen spots of Rage filler and some spots of metal glaze too…the rest is bare metal with about half the car having deep scratches from a previous owner.

    My plan is to spray slick sand over the entire car and then sand for paint. What products are recommended before and after the slick sand prior to a base and then the clear coats? Do I need an epoxy primer or a primer surfacer to cover the filler or the slick sand?

    I am looking for product recommendations for each step of a complete prep job; filler, primer, paint, and clear.

    Please help.
