paint and body advice

Postby Tuna Cowboy » Sun Sep 08, 2013 9:06 pm

Looking for some advice on where to start for paint and body, I have the ss frame with some surface rust, also the cab of the ape. Duraglass for the bad spots first? Rust.converter? Not overwhelmed but now that I have some space time to start...

I have Duraglas and Half-time left over from the two bikes I have done this summer. I hope to finish the paint on Wednesday morning then you are welcome to whatever is left over. I can share with you my approach but remember, you get what you pay for and I'm free :P

The approach and order of products is a little of what I need. I have some surface rust on a few parts, thinking I should remove that prior to half time. The ape I need to do some sheet metal work so I'll ask Landon on ideas on direction. Time to take the steps...

1. Remove rust/repair metal
2. Acid/self etching primer
3. Body filler
4. Sanding and repeat filler if needed
5. Slicksand

Does the acid etch primer cover surface rust? Acid etch.sprayed from a can or paint gun?
