best way to proceed with bodywork/rustproofing?

What's this week's approved method for grinding,

filling/glazing, priming, topcoating that will last?

I know we've all done it a hundred different ways

but this is my 3rd resto and I (again) want it to be

absolutely right. I've had to weld in a rear wheel

arch and some patches here and there. After

welding/grinding, I left them to "season" before I

coated with POR15. I also want to use a totally

metal product called "Metal-Fill" as a filler (in the

South, any filler bubbles up under new paint...it is

NEVER dry enough to leave bare for a minute) then

feather edge with glazing putty.

Should I expect any adhesion problems with this

combination? Has anyone used POR15 on body

panels like this with any problems? Heard of or

used DynaTron's Metal-Fill?

sometimes that stuff does not stick too well at ALL. go to your local paint store at least and get the PPG or dupont stuff, they even have a 2 part glazing putty. UNBELIEVABLY better than the bondo stuff. Hope that helps at least a little, good luck!

the last quart I bought a year or so ago talked about priming the POR surface BEFORE the paint cured (while it's still tacky to the touch) if it was going to be painted over. POR 15 is great stuff, but if you try to sand it, you'll find it's really, really hard.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
