How to prep a resin body?
Posted by Anonymous on Monday, February 2, 2004 12:08 PM
What is the best way to do bodywork on a resin body?
I have some small nicks and holes to fill.
Do I prime before using filler? Or fill and sand first and then prime?
What is the best filler to use?
Any suggestions?

First step , wash it really good in a degreasing soap to remove all the mold release
For pinholes I find Bondo Glazing putty to work well, you can fix up the pinholes prior to paint or primer

I gave it a bath in CSC. I even have a tube of Bondo Glazing putty.
Just wondered if it mattered whether or not I prime it first.
Thanks dag,

You should use a good primer/sealer,then just paint as you normally would.Good luck,W.F.
