    Thank You and will try to load some pics this weekend . one of the biggest conflicts i keep hearing is the epoxy primer. We had it sprayed back when i had the truck media blasted 3 years ago since we cut and welded patches in and started with the fiber strand filler now from what i read all the old epoxy has to come off , the body from what Dave told me needs a complete thin layer of plastic due to some pitting in the metal from what dave had told me last year. so 2 weeks ago i sanded the old primer down to metal and shot new epoxy over the metal and filler i had done i see i need more body work in a couple of areas, but was reading that the Omni epoxy is chemical bond is only good for 3 days, i did purchase 2k primer can i still do my filler over the new epoxy primer (non Thinned), and then shoot 2k over it and block sand. then repeat as i move from panel to panel. AGAIN I AM a WEEKEND WARRIOR but not afraid of a challenge, this pick its on the Fatman chassis with narrowed 9" rear'

    what a great project. sorry your friend won't be there to see it come along.
    you're fine with the epoxy. don't worry about the recoat window of three days. just do your metal work on the areas you need to, scuff the cured epoxy and shoot another coat of it on the repair area. then while you're in the recoat window shoot your 2k urethane primer. i like to let it sit for a while before i start blocking so everything can tighten up.
    with the epoxy, they say either recoat while in the window or scuff and recoat with more epoxy before primer. (generally speaking) thats the method i use cause it takes me eons to get all the way around the car.
