Just getting Started
I'm new to bodywork so, this might sound stupid to some of you.
I'm starting to do a lot of body work on 73 vw and know I'm not going to get it done fast. Probably take a few months. I plan on doing as much work as I can in spare time. I have the car covered behind my shop and it's damp this time of year. I can't bring the car into a building permanently. So, I will be leaving it out side after I work on it and I have it covered in a tarp.
My Question is: Is there anyway I can keep the humidity from eating through my primer and body work till I get ready to paint?
Use a name brand epoxy primer and apply at least two coats. This should give you decent protection in between work sessions. A tarp in contact with the surface can trap moisture, you would probably be better off without the tarp if the vehicle is water tight.
