Using Slide Hammer on a rear wheel arch?

Looks like you're doing a pretty decent job with the limited experience and lack of professional tools. :thumb:

 

The fibreglass is a curious choice ??

I would have thought metal or body filler would be the way to go?

It doesn't absorb moisture like normal body filler, with normal filler this aspect can promote rust of the panel.

 

Or so I understand it.

I didn't even have metal filler in the short list, not sure why.

 

Edit: Although you can't go too thick with the fibre glass, but any remaining low spots that can be done with normal filler over the glass, or if really  small............spot filler.

 

Yeah, will do well enough, and the final prep will dictate how well the end result turns out :thumb:

Was on the home stretch but was sick of the dust and body work is not something I like doing or am good at, and as I'm not bothered with colour (too dodgy using aerosol cans and my paint also has a pearl components so hard to match....wetting out could be done with a proper spray gun but not these bloody cans).

 

I can live with it like this :)

 

I did also repair the front guard on the other side that had a big dent since I purchased it, have a can of Mitsubishi NF base and a can of clear to try on there as it is a smaller area and easier. Scratched the bumper up a little by accident but can polish that out easy enough.

 

I might revisit and finish, but meh......prefer to work on my CD player.

Be careful about leaving it in primer. I've heard primer is not waterproof.

I thought it was.

 

I'll double check :thumb:.

 

Edit: I'll put a couple of light coats of clear over it to seal it.

Got the guard on the other side coloured......Not proud of the job, way below what I used to do when younger, but I'm old and tired, and seem to be more prone to the thought "stuff it, that will do" :(

 

I'll have a look after I buff it in a day or so. I never want to paint with aerosol cans again, stupid things splatter even after 3 minutes of shaking the can, and I can't tell how wet or dry it is when spraying due to such a low pressure, where with a proper gun I find it easy and helps that I'm mixing the paint and thinners the way I like to :)

 

Never sprayed a metallic or anything where clear is used before, at least It's all blue on that side now.

Thanks for that post, Greg :)

 

I worked painting at GMH for a while (high pressure with a nice big fan :D ) and as a laborer in beaters on the paint side when younger, so only just above novice really.

 

I put 4 light coats of clear over the undercoat to seal it :thumb:

 

Might finish the side area down the track a bit.

Spray cans make running easy!

Not bloody wrong there, Les.

 

Got a run in the base coats and had to let dry enough to block it out before applying more base coats.

 

Edit: Bugger! started to cut it back only to find I didn't have enough clear on there 9_9

 

Rinse and repeat!
