Today was epoxy day for the Ghia. We spent the morning hours prepping the car for primer. We sanded the entire car with 80 grit paper and used a grinder to remove body filler from the lower front center section. Once the metal was ready, we blew the dust off of all the nooks and crannies then wiped it down several times to be sure it was clean. Then we masked off the interior to keep things neat. Now its time for Paul to spray the epoxy. PPG’s epoxy primer is designed to seal up the metal and provide excellent adhesion to the metal and the subsequent products that will go on top of it. Since epoxy takes a while to dry, and it was late in the day, we chose to apply the Slick Sand primer tomorrow morning. Slick Sand primer will provide us with enough material to block out to ensure we have flat straight surface as well as a great base to do body work over. Stay tuned tomorrow to see it in its Slick Sand glory.
