It's time to prepare the body for primer sealer. But before we do that we have to fix this last little stinking blemish. One finger swipe of glazing compound did it. With that, the body work is done, done, done (less the doors, hood, headlight buckets and rear valance).
Because the primer has been curing for several days the surface needs to be roughed up so the next coat of paint will stick. House of Kolor recommends a maroon scuff pad and that's what we will use. In addition we will use Dura-Block, a sanding block that has properties similar to that of heavy shoe leather. The combination of the scuff pad and the sanding block will give us an even flatter/smoother surface. This will take several hours.
We are using House of Kolor's black primer sealer called Ko-Seal II. This primer sealer is used to prevent the topcoats (color and clear coat) from soaking into our green primer. Without the primer sealer we would loose gloss over time. The primer sealer also acts as a bonding agent between the primer and the topcoats.
I used my full size SATA HLVP spray gun for the body. OMG! It worked great but boy did it tax the capabilities of my makeshift paint booth. I am really glad I was wearing a respirator and paint suit.
