I have a shell that is almost completely stripped and primed that needs painting. What should I use to sand down the last part of the car and can I use two different primers. Do I need to use certain primers for certain paints? Do you have any recommendations for painting the undercarriage? Also, how hard is it to weld the nose on the car because when I bought it the person that welded the nose on didn’t do a good job? Overall I need any advice you all can give on painting a car.

Thanks,

where will you buy your paint? I would talk to them

about primers and paint. you want them to be compatable

or you can run into problems.

I'm going to probably buy it from them or I know a guy that does body work on 2002's and I might buy it from him.

What philv said about the primer and paint.

I'm in about the same spot as you are with my chassis. I block wet-sand the primer/sealer with 320 grit before painting. ALWAYS use a block when sanding, otherwise you'll end up with a rippled surface. If the surface is concaved, like along the outside edges of the hood, try to use a large diameter piece of plastic pipe as a block. I've had good results, but everyone does it a little differently.
