    I'm using Summit Racings DTM Epoxy. I'm pretty sure their paint is rebranded Kirker products. The directions state flash time for multiple coats is 60 min and the recoat window is up to 4 days. I...

    Thanks Len! I already have a gallon of DTM Epoxy so I might as well use that. One other question. Do I really need to wait 3 days for the epoxy to dry so I can scuff it or, can I just apply the...

    Thanks! Plans are to hit it with 150g, epoxy prime, wait a couple of days and scuff with 220g, spray some Slicksand, block with 180g followed by 240g, then a few coats of 2K urethane primer.
  4. 150g, 80g, something else?

    150g, 80g, something else?
  5. Stripped car with strip discs. Should I sand before epoxy primer?

    Just finished stripping the '54 to bare metal using the Blackhawk strip discs. Most of the body work is done. Next up will be 2 coats of epoxy primer . The strip discs leave a smooth finish. ...

    If you're gonna use the gun just to spray Slicksand, may as well go with a cheapy. I just used this one to SS my '54 Customline and it worked great! The price is right and it has a quart cup and...

    IIRC, I shot the white one day then shot the clear the next day.
  8. What's the difference between single stage and BC/CC?

    What is the difference? Last year I painted my truck with two coats of single stage white. Then within the recoat window I layed on 3 coats of clear over that. Mostly for added protection and a...

    Well, I guess I'll shoot the epoxy today, let it sit overnight, scuff with 220 tomorrow (hope it doesn't gum up the sandpaper), then lay down the SS. My DTM probably isn't very high end. Bought it...
  10. One final question on epoxy primer/Slicksand

    Today I'm gonna shoot epoxy primer on the roof. Metal/filler is finished with 80g. Once I lay 2 coats of DTM epoxy primer, I'm going to lay 2 coats of Slicksand on top of the epoxy within the...

    Good tip on digging out the pinholes! I'm picking up some polyester spot putty today.
    The plastic filler I use is Rage Gold. I use a 4" putty knife to mix using the lap method and spread it on...

    Will Slicksand fill pinholes in filler?

    I've never sprayed Slicksand before. I'm wondering if it will fill pinholes and some very minor low spots in my roof panel. Also, are there any tricks to spraying it? I've got the roof section...

    I bought an IR 5L5 from TSC in 2006 for $600. They're double that now. Couldn't be more pleased with it! I've built 3 cars from the ground up using that compressor. It's a single stage 5hp, 80...
  16. Can I use this for grease and wax remover?

    This has been sitting in my shop for 20 years. It's about 3/4 full so I'd like to use it, if possible. Today I stripped the roof to bare metal and used it to wipe down the roof before a skim coat...

    Changed my plan a little.

    Original thread
    Now I'm going to take the roof down to bare metal with 80 grit, fill the low spots with Rage, sand and then epoxy prime. Then, within the recoat window, I plan to lay down a couple...
  19. What's the shelf life of an open can of plastic filler?

    I have a new 1 gallon can of Rage Gold. I'll probably be using 1/3 of it. If I reseal it properly how long can I keep it on the shelf and still reuse it?
  20. Thanks for the insight! I'll probably take the...

    Thanks for the insight! I'll probably take the white down to bare metal with 80g and blend the filler accordingly.
  21. Bodywork and paint on my '53 Ford. Am I doing this right?

    I'm new to the board and I'm about to embark on bodywork and paint on my '54 Ford Customline. I think I have a pretty solid plan but would like confirmation that I'm doing this properly. This won't...
