I'm restornig a 50 Chevy Sedan. The area under where the beltline moding is is very pitted. What is the best way to fix this. I know I can sandblast it but that is kind of a last resort. I was thinking of using picklex but I will need to use filler to fill in the pitted areas. Can I use filler over picklex before I epoxy prime?

Thanks,

Todd

I'd epoxy over the picklex first then use the bondo.

One of the small sand blaster guns with it's own hopper would work great. I had similar places on the body side molding on my 57. I used the spot blaster and picklex, then epoxy. When you are investing so much time and money in a project why not go the extra mile and be sure the rust is gone? If it comes back you will wish you had. Regrds Ron
