Body Work Questions
I just bought a YJ tub for my Jeep. This is my second swap, the first was done to my brothers jeep. When we painted his we just scuffed the paint, shot primer on it, then enamel based paint. We used about a gallon of paint for the whole thing.
His Jeep looks great but Iím worried that the paint didnít adhere as well as it could have. I dropped a wrench on the fender and it chipped the paint.
Iím painting this one black, and I know black shows every blemish. I want it to look original and last a long time. So far my plan is to strip the body down to bare metal and prime with epoxy primer. I'll then fill any dents or imperfections with bondo. Then shoot a finish primer, then paint.
I've done most of these steps before so I'm pretty confident in my ability to do it right. I want to get really good adhesion between the layers of primer and paint. Is this the best course of action?
Brock Iíll try to get some pictures of what Iíve done so far up this weekend.
