I personally like to lay down a few layers of primer and do some sanding just to make sure its blended in well.

I recommend primering the area where you did the bodywork if not the whole body. if not you will see an outline of the work through the finish. unless of course you have sanded it really really smooth...
primer also helps to find mold imperfections in the panels, but to each their own i reckon...

Sign - DittoSign - DittoSign - Ditto the primer will show you the low or high spots of the putty work, much easier to fix when primed , once you have all the bad spots fixed, just paint as normal. good luck, hope it comes out just like you want it to.Thumbs UpThumbs Up

What's a good putty to use, I've got a few scratches from carving out doors when the knife slipped.
