Good morning , new to the group
I’m in Kentucky and have been following learn autobody for months now and have a 05 s197 that I had to do a motor swap due to the original car being totalled by my dad.
So ive been following Tony’s series on body and paint. I’ve completed the body repair and moved on to coatings and I picked a polyester fiber fill filler primer and finally shot it over the weekend . I was having some problems with it coming out of the gun in fact I couldn’t even get it to go through the cone filters at all. so I thinned it out and to a 5 to 1 ratio and it would finally shoot.
I’ve never painted anything other than walls in my homes so it’s new to me.
The texture was very rough but I got good coverage. I think in part I had a cheap $60 gun from Amazon that sucked. I could only get about a 4 inch fan pattern.
So I’m wondering if this was normal and if not should I be concerned about adherence. And should I recoat with a straight primer after I block the polyester?
I did order a atom x27 Sunday to use for the paint.
I also had some bad water issues and am going to build a water trap in the next couple of days.
Any input is welcomed
