    We use a two pack primer/filler made by RobAust over the etch primer. It costs about $150 for a 5lt kit. We have tried heaps of different brands over the years and found it to be the best filling out there. It sands really easy and doesn't sink back when cured. 3 coats of it can be board file sanded with 180, guide coated and resanded with 400 -800 grit. Its a fast and economical way. We never use single pack fillers. Keep up this thread. Good job.

    lol im not gunna say much in here besides that what the others have said about single pack products are right.

    i only ever use 1k plastic primer for new bars and 1k etch primer especially if im doing wheels and ive decided that doing them wet on wet is the best way.

    Mate that VR has come up trumps! Would love my HT to be looking as clean as that - wanna do mine?

    Many thanks for the detailed write-up. My mate has most of the equipment you mentioned above so am going to try and borrow that from him. He did a few DIY small repairs at home but didn't paint the whole car, so I'll be using your steps above as a guide on what I need to do. Will post up a few pics as I go too incase I'm heading down the wrong path.

    Question - where you state "Spray your panels about 4 to 6 cms away with the gun, do slow even passes as if your painting it with colour... this is the final step before priming" what are you actually spraying/painting it with??

    Ev1LVT I have some questions.

    I had my whole car blasted. I then took it straight back to work and put Deoxidine on the whole shell. I then painted it in 2 pak Epoxy primer. I have now done the rust repairs and recoated in Epoxy primer. My next step is the High solid.

    http://www.aussiev8.com.au/conversio...n-project.html

    1. Should I spray high solid on the whole car with all panel fitted, or can they be done off?
    (Doors, Bonnet,Tailgate, Fronnt Gaurds)

    2. Do I spray the door jams of the shell, back side of front gaurds, underneath of bonnet and the back side of doors first. Then fit doors. If yes do I put the clear on?

    3. Do I spray the car with doors, bonnet and tail gate fitted? (wagon)

    Thanks Dave
