Help me out here. You said epoxy primer over Bondo before Monstaliner. Is there any wiggle room on this? I just discovered that epoxy primer has to be applied with a paint gun, which I don't have, but could probably borrow, but never used one before. I only have 2 small areas that are body filled. I will do this properly, but any chance I can just use a self-etcher in the spray can or something similar?
Thanks.

Use a good spray can of automotive primer for small areas. Non self etching

A few important things here:

Self etch primer is ONLY used on BARE METAL. That's why it's called etch primer. It etches metal SUPPOSEDLY. Stuff is useless over non metal surfaces. Useless all around IMO as I've seen too many DIY failures.

2K epoxy primer is now available in spray cans. You push a plunger on bottom of can which punctures 2nd component and allows 2 parts to mix when you shake. Rustoleum and SprayMAX are the 2 products out there. Google it.

Whoever told you that 2K epoxy primer can only be sprayed is thinking "automotive painting". For bedliner applications, any brush or roller marks left in the primer will be hidden by the thickness of the liner. You just don't want to apply it slobbingly with drips, runs and thick lap marks. Work fast with a narrow foam roller and it works VERY well.

My wisdom for the day. Ask questions if you want more elaborate answers

How far up the firewall is everyone going up on the inside? Are you going all the way up or taping off and stopping somewhere? If anyone has not gone all the way up do you have pictures of where you stopped?

I used the welding line as my stopping point.
