Body work over painted panel

Post by wayne57 on August 4th 2012, 12:46 pm

Ive started to paint my 51 chevy and have done the fenders and partial area of both doors.
i dont know why but after i painted the areas in regal red rustoleum i found a couple
of areas that i could have been done better.small dimples that i didnt see with the primer on.
now my question is this : is there any way of fixing these spots without stripping the
whole area again? the paint went on good and there is minimal orange peel.
Can i just sand the spots and maybe just use a little red lead to fill them
and then prime the spots again before continuing with the red again.

thanks

Sure. just sand down the bad spots and fix them. The depth of the ding will determine the filler material, parking lot scratches will be ok with glaze but if they are deeper you need bondo or similar.

This is just my opinion. A 51 Chev is probably riddled with tiny dings and dents that are barely detectable, until you put a glossy finish on it. You are probably the only one that will ever see them, even after its painted. Everyone else will just see a cool 51 Chev. But it all come down to what you want, and how long you want it to last. I would sand the dent area to bare metal, fill it, spot primer and proceed with your coats. If their real small, just roll over em. I wont tell...
Love the 50's Chevy's btw...
