Replacement Box Sides

(9) Primer

Back to Replacement Box Sides


The primer and paint I used are both RM products. I used Glasurit high build filler primer and Limco paint.

Body filler is needed to smooth out around the areas that were welded. As pictured above, I used the good stuff: USC Icing body filler. This stuff is really expensive but its so nice to work with.
The high solids primer is applied once, I used a board sander (hand) and sanded it down to get the high spots.
A second coat of filler primer is applied and then hand-sanded to 320 grit. I could have gone to 400 or even up to 800 grit paper but it's just an old pickup truck.
The fender flares and ....
.... rear of the box are all prepped and primed for paint.
