Asked by Mahi Nov 22, 2010 at 11:36 PM about the 1977 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

After the soda blast.... I hand sanded down the entire body.  The interior is removed.  I just finished POR15'ing the floor area and windshield trim.  No damage to fix.  What filler do I use before I prime it to paint?  Thanks.

You want to use a fiberglass filler from Eckler's, use an epoxy primer to give your body an armor finish that will not crack or more important, not let gases like Freon R11 or 22 to escape and seep into your fiberglass hood. Once it gets into the hood and right front fender, the paint will always look funny. Almost like fisheyes.Then a nice thin base coat, and at least three coats of clear . Pound it down and stand back and be amazed.

Thank you for the insight; I have never thought of the gases seeping into the fiberglass.
