1956 Chevrolet Bel Air - Part 8
After all of the rust repairs were finished on the front fenders it was time to prepare them for some body filler and primer. The edges and insides of the fenders were sand blasted. The outsides of the fenders were sanded with a DA sander and then metal prepped with Dupont 5717S Metal Conditioner. A coat of epoxy primer followed just in case we didn't get to the filler work soon. The epoxy primer will keep the metal from rusting. The body filler work can be done over epoxy primer. The insides of the fenders were sprayed with 2 coats of black Zero-Rust.
Thin layers of body filler were applied to smooth out the repairs and waves in the fenders. We then applied another coat of epoxy primer to protect the exposed metal from rusting until we had time to apply the 2K filler primer.
