    OK nothing new to report but I'm wondering why my images are not showing up, I don't know if I put them in correctly can anyone help?

    The next thing is...

    While I'm working on my '55 I'm going to ask questions for things I don't know.

    1. As I'm working though stripping paint off of body parts and panels I plan on painting them with 2K epoxy primer. I've read that after ~7 days the primer is unable to make a chemical adhesion to new paints, primers, and fillers. I read that it requires sanding to add teeth to it. Is this true.

    2. How long does the 2K last ie does it start to rust or degrade over time.

    3. Do you do body work (filler) over the 2K primer?

    I had problems posting pics here. Then I resized them to a smaller size and they work just fine now.

    I thought 2k primer and epoxy primer were two different things. I am not familiar with "2k epoxy primer".

    I use SPI epoxy primer on bare metal. It keeps the metal from rusting. During the first week you can put body filler, 2k primer and more epoxy over it. After one week you need to sand it before putting anything over it.

    My understanding is that 2k primer does not prevent rust and you can not do body filler over it. That is why I put epoxy primer over bare metal first.

    SPI website has a lot of info and has helped me a lot. https://www.southernpolyurethanes.com/

    "2K" refers to any 2-part primer, including urethanes and epoxies. So epoxy primer is "2K".

    BamaNomad, for some reason there is no edit button on my posts with pics, that's why I was asking.

    Pretty sure the ability to edit a post goes away after 24 hours or so.

    CN is correct that it goes away after some time; I have the edit button on posts I made earlier today, but do not have it for posts several days ago...

    Thanks. Most of the cars I did in the past I used lacquer primer surfacer. This car I am working on is the first I have used 2k primer. I was just going on how things were worded on the SPI price list. Thanks for correcting me.

    But I am pretty sure that what I said about epoxy primer is correct.
