  • Thanks for the brief explanation. It’s been 25yrs since I painted cars, and techniques/ materials have changed a bunch!

  • Hi, Yes you can apply it over top. We’d just suggest scuffing the encapsulator with at least a scuff pad before applying.

  • After bondo what do i seal it with,just primer, or apoxy primer filler? or can I just spray 2k primer? I can only do 1 piece at a time, like the roof, then the doors and then the side bed of the truck, am I going to have a problem doing it that way? Thanks

  • Hi, If there is bare metal exposed we would suggest using Epoxy Primer to seal it all up.

  • Thanks for the info. I’m buying used doors and hood for a trailblazer so I’ll be stripping them to bare metal so using 2k apoxy primer should go first correct? So than do I put a second finish primer down before I paint? Will be painting whole SUV so to match everything.

  • Hi David, Yes we usually suggest to apply a urethane primer and block it flat before applying paint.

  • My covette has a recent 2 stage urethane paint job in good condition. I plan to do a color change and want to know what the best primer is to cover the Urethane and other parts of the. body that are down to fiberglass.

  • My 84 Bronco has a totally rusted Hood and Cab top. I have sanded with 80 grit and sanded thru rust to where I have a speckled or salt/pepper look ie (very very shallow low rust spots and partially thru the top of original oem primer). What type of prime should I use ? 2k DTM Expoxy . What or when would a filler primer be needed. The Bronco will not be painted for several months and will sit outside some of the time. To take to bare metal would require sand blasting which is not available in my area.
