K2 Epoxy over?

I am no body man.

I had to cut off the very bottom of my cab corner for access. I have patched it back together. I have some 2 part epoxy primer. I am reasonably sure it can go over the bare metal. Can I also spray it up to where the black paint is scuffed. I guess how do I best blend in the repair to existing paint.

Also, do I need to keep working the metal weld to get it smoother. Its been hard to get a dolly in behind positioned correctly.

Did I mention, I am no body man.

Re: K2 Epoxy over?

Get your metal as smooth as you can...
You'll need to skim some filler over your weld seam
You may want to feather the black paint edge more or you'll have a line there..
But yes, spray the epoxy up onto the black and blend it smooth
Epoxy is for bare metal...scuff the metal good ,then spray
