I'll be ordering Apocalypse tomorrow but before I do...I have some small patches of surface rust on my rockers. I'm guessing I could use the "Repair Kit *BLACK* 8 Ounce" to sand and repair the area before applying the Monstaliner? If not, what do you recommend to sand and primer the area?
Monstaliner repair material is only used to fix or patch an existing ML installation and you never want to put ML direct over rust or bare metal.
I would coarse sand (50 grit) those spots to the bare metal and use Chassis Saver as a primer. Let that cure, scuff surface and put ML over the CS.
Alternate primer would be a spray can of Rustoleum automotive primer after same coarse sanding to bare metal.
Got to be careful with rockers. I've seen too many problems with blisters coming up after coating or rust coming back through so you're best off removing it completely first.
The aluminum is the tub. Hard to reach areas are like up in cracks. They'll be noticed to the eye but probably not gonna see any touching of feet, hands and what not. The doors and hood are bare steel. I will need a little filler work done on them if that is okay before the epoxy. My front fenders are primed already but I've had to do mods to them so there's bare steel in spots. Those I can take down to bare steel if need be before shooting the epoxy.
I feel these are dumb questions lol. I'm anal as all get out man and I want this to be perfect and done once. Thanks for answering all this.
