    Picklex and Zero Rust do two different things.... Picklex is used after the loose rust is removed to convert and stabilize the surface then it's allowed to dry then scuffed and the Zero Rust is...

    Yes, that's a good idea that would work if you're going to leave the vehicle in one position for a while but, most of the time, I put it up and down as I work.

    You can leave 2K primers unprotected but it can depend on what's under them and what 2K primer you're using. Some 2Ks like Optex are a good barrier to moisture while others can be more porous and...

    That looks like you're almost there. I'd sand the filler and everything else with 320 or 400 or 600 then epoxy prime and filler prime then guide coat and sand again with the 400 or 600.

    As long as you have a base of epoxy primer you probably don't need to worry about rust. However if you want a filler primer that can also protect the surface you can use Optex which can also be...

    That's right, I drive onto those 1 1/2" thick boards for my low riders. I purchased 4 of the 8' boards to drive up on then cut two of them down to 6' because I didn't need the 16' length. Once I...

    After the Rustmort, or most other rust converters, you can use a primer that doesn't contain acid. Sometimes it can take a little research but it can save a paint peeling disaster down the road.

    Epoxy primer first is a good idea if your putting on other primers that are not meant to go direct to metal. I would recommend finishing the body filler with 180 because the 80 grit is a little too...

    The first thing you should do is to call around to several junk yards in your area to see if anyone has a used door. It would be a lot easier (and cheaper) to replace than to repair.
