1974 Corvette | Fiberglass Prep & Paint

Body and paint is one of the largest steps to a restoration project. The cosmetics of the car are extremely important because everyone wants to make sure that the car looks as good as it runs and vice versa. At the Guild, the process is more in depth and has more stages than a collision center Bodyshop. Though a collision center is perfectly setup for their purpose, ideally a car is merely being repaired of any damage that makes it unsafe and it is repaired cosmetically to a certain degree. The Guild’s primary goal when it comes to body and paint is longevity and with that comes a high level of cosmetics. We will often hear “I don’t want a show car, I just want a good quality paint job that lasts”. Unfortunately, the two are not mutually exclusive and one comes with the other.

This video shows the process of prep and paint on a fiberglass bodied car. We show some issues with even the best quality of aftermarket panels and why so much care must be put into the prep of a car before applying paint that should last for decades with proper care.

How to Bondo Video – Car Dent Repair Using a Body Filler – ABTL Auto Extras

Some day you are going to wind up with a dent in your car. A good body shop can repair most dents using bondo. 3M makes a wide range of body repair and abrasives products. They have designed a general 4-step process for repairing car dents and other body damage using bondo.

1) The first step involves taking down the paint around the damaged area to the bare metal so you have a good surface for the bondo to stick to.

2) Step 2 is all about reinforced fillers. If you have a rust out or hole that needs to be filled then reinforced filler should be used. If you have a dent then stage 2 is about pulling the dent out.

3) Stage 3 is about filling in that dent with bondo body filler and sanding it down using anything from 180-400 grit sandpaper.

4) Step 4 is all about the painting process.

Bondo is a 2-part filler made up of a resin and a hardening agent.
