In this video, we are applying epoxy to the area that has been repaired. Epoxy is the superior primer for adhesion and corrosion protection. This is why I like to apply one to two coats before applying primer surfacer (for filling.) If the repair did not require all coating to be removed, epoxy may not be needed. For example, using 180 to rough up an area to apply finish glaze putty. Like a small hail dent. Other procedures may include applying self etching primer to the metal to acheive the desired adhesion for other coating. After applying the epoxy, we’ll apply two coats of primer surfacer.
What types of primers do you use on repair areas? Self etching, epoxy, or other methods?
