Thanks!

 

I have just a couple of spots to finish sanding, the rear of the rocker panels and over the windshield on the roof, and then I guess I need to buy 2K primer. The good thing is that this next step should be way quicker because the sanding should be much more minor.

Alright I am buying 2K primer for this weekend.

2 gallons plus activator equals 2 1/2 sprayable. Is that enough, even for the inside of the bed? I am thinking 2-3 coats total. 

 

The SPI "perfect paint job" has reduced epoxy as a sealer, but the 2K primer datasheet says no sealer needed. I should have enough epoxy leftover, but I want to make sure that's reasonable.

What 2k primer are you using?

I've decided to go with SPI primer with a slow reducer despite your recommendation earlier for feather fill.

In reply to tuna55 :

I have a feeling that you have gone above and beyond where I use Featherfill. Featherfill really does need a sealer in my experience regardless of what the data sheet said; too "powdery" if that makes sense. I like a 600 wet  sand finish to put paint on, but anything over 400 should be adequate. 

Some 2k primers are either a high fill of a sealer depending on how much you reduce them. Is this the case with the SPI product? These are usually urethanes in my experience but there could be epoxies that do the same.

Yes I believe that's correct and I don't plan on reducing this primer unless I misunderstand what it's for.

I used ProForm 2K Epoxy Primer on my '61. 

You can spray it as a primer, or reduce it and spray it as a sealer/primer. 

Reduced you can spray colour within half an hour (I think), but unreduced you need it to sit for a day first.

Is there yet an app/program/website which allows you to try different colors from a picture? I ask because there is a slim but nonzero chance that I can do body color before winter.

Apparently seafoam green is a GM color from the early 90s, and looks like this from the factory:

You guys like pictures, right? Tunakid 4 took a lot. She helped a ton with sanding before all of this. I'm not entirely happy with three spots,a very small part of the roof, and the section of the b pillar where the body line changes on both sides. It's very minor. 

 

The truck is now 100% in epoxy primer. 2k primer arrives tomorrow.
