I find that one of the most important things to remember when block sanding filler is to use a coarse grit sandpaper to get the filler flat before going over it with 180-220. If you start out with paper that is too fine you filler with turn out wavy.
That is a 3 pointer….thanks for sharing the tip 🙂
In my country, we put under body filler, an epoxy primer (for optimal antirust protection),
Why most of people in us never do that? I know that body filler has better adhesion to metal, than to sanded paint.
3 Pointer….Many body filler have zinc, which aids in corrosion protection, but I agree, epoxy is excellent. If I have a lot of metal, if blasted for instance, I would epoxy the bare metal before doing the body work. Great tip, thanks for sharing.
3 Pointer…great tips, thanks for sharing your knowledge with us.
Thanks for watching Cheator40
Could have opened the hood to make sure you don't scratch it.
That is a good point, thanks for sharing. And 3 points!
Another good video…Thanks, Donnie!
We always finish out with 320's gives the primer nothing to shrink back into !!
Donnie your videos are very informative and more professional than a guy out there that has auto body videos in a web page and charges 179.00 USD for the VIP access. I went to school for auto body in high school back in the 90's. Now I'm learning to airbrush and Iove your videos. Thanks.
I am glad you like the videos. I am in the process of making the videos with better audio and visual. It'e been a learn as I go process on the video editing. Thanks for watching!
I never knew about the glazing….now I do….I always wondered how they went to ultra smooth fiber/bondo to paint…I just could never get there…now I know…thanks man…you're the best…
hey im not the best at body work but i can make do, i could never get the bondo completely smooth no matter how much i sanded or what grit i used.now i know about this glazing putty which is awesome. Thank you so much!!!
The glazing putty you use looks like a thin bondo. The glazing putty I know is the red kind in a tube made by Bondo. Is the glazing putty you use the same thing?
The red putty is a little different. That is a 1k product. The product I am using in the video is a 2k product. The 2k dries much faster and does not shrink like the 1k..
Hey Donnie. enjoying the vids. self taught body and paint guy working for my dad who has a small car lot that keeps me employed buying auction rides cheaper needing body /rust work. continually learning new things. I always take down to 320 before prime. Not nessasary? Btw…We got the same color works poster behind you. Had to cut off the 2012 calander though 😉 Keep up the vids
how much will you charge to customer for this "touch up" till you paint it??
Hello Donnie .. I want you to made one Video that explain step by step How to paint a car and what is the product you use …. i really like your videos you are perfect
I am glad you like the video. Thanks for the suggestion and for watching them.
Hi Donnie, great Vids, Tell me , do you sand of the guide cote in the low area's before reaplying a second layer of body filler or glaze putty ? Thank you ans have your self a great day 🙂
I usually do to rough up the low area. Just don't lose sight of where the low areas are.
Thank you very much for the great video!
Man!!! You are too awesome donnie!! Make it look so easy!
Thanks for video!!
Very good professional advice, thanks for the vids
10ks 4 those tips,,,so helpful.
Nice work thank for the advise
Funny….you make it look easy!! hahaha Great Video!
I'm doing my first body work at 66 years old. Always been intimidated and never tried it. Thanks for the tips and hands on, it definitely will help me feel more confident.
Just viewed your video on 'putty glaze over bondo'. Fantastic lesson.
Your channel is the Best on youtube for AutoBody repairs thanks Donnie Smith
Like the way you explain each step. Thanks
I plan on using the one part Spot Putty my car got keyed its from driver door to the passenger door makes me mad but it should be an easy fix.
Donnie do you have any tips on painting semi trucks. I mainly have problems reaching the very top of them
Great thank you
These videos are very helpful, thank you.
How long can your sanded body filler and glaze putty job sit before applying primer?
The only glaze putty that I have found in my area is red. It just goes on in one coat of putty.
Hello Donnie, I just discovered your video and I have not completed viewing them all just yet. I am more interested in learning how to paint motorcycles and eventually some cars if the need should ever arise. My question to you is, do all the rules apply in the same order. Any tips/videos you have would be greatly appreciated.
Did he just apply the glaze without applying a primer first to the exposed metal? what about the possibility of future rusting?
polyester putty should never go over paint or recently applied primer, although the manufactures say you can it will always sink around the outside edge.It may not happen right away but over a few months it's pretty much guaranteed to do so.Also NEVER EVER apply fillers up and down always spread the fillers as the wind would go over the car. Spreading it in a vertical application will make a whole lot more work to get the panel straight
can you put the fiber glass cloth over bondo?
Hey Donnie, What can I do about weather stripping and seals after a car has been painted? Im scared the seals will stick out like a sore thumb.
Hi ! Thanks for the video I think it was very good. I was wondering if you can help me out. I have a Fiberglass Jeep CJ that was previously painted and now I am redoing the paint,I started out sanding the paint with a block and 400 grit and when I finished one side of the Jeep I put on guide coat and notice very small and light dark areas from front to back of the Tub (Fiberglass). My question is; Can I use 3M acrylic putty to fill them up or do I use body filler? and what grit of sand paper should I use to get the putty to grab? If you can answer me It will be appreciated ,Thanks.,
great videogreat man
very nice product.
Can do you a video on alloy wheel repairs?
Do I have to sand over the body of my car before applying the filler? I have a big scratch that is deep on only 1/10th of it and the rest is fairly light but I might as well respray the entire area. Also what's the difference between spot and glazing putty?
Hey man can you make a video explaining, what to use and why to use certain types of bundle in certain situations, can I apply normal bundle over paint or primer, and in what phase of the body work been done to a car can I use putty.
How long do u let the putty dry before sanding!
Can this be applied over primer to fix small imperfections?
Why bother with body filler, looks like this would work fine just by itself!?
Don, I have a new BRZ and although not noticing everyone I have a spot underneath the Bumper lip I want to touch up. I have the exact paint and only needs a very light coat of filler. Where can I get this and would the be my best bet. Thanks !
MAN! ALL YOUR VIDS ARE THE BEST! EXACTLY WHAT I NEED! thanks 🙂
Very smooth application
what's a good sealer after blocking polyester primer?
Hi donnie, but my question is..so from the first video repair to this one what if you didn't wanna use glazing putty. would you just have finished the work off by sanding with 150 grit or a little finer up to 180 grit?
Very good teacher. Thorough and saves alot of time on my Chevelle
I am a beginner. I have been using bondo body filler. I used their red glazing and spot potty and it is a one part putty. Where can I get a putty similar to the one that you used here? It would be awesome to go over everything with putty like that. I waste alot of time due to inexperience.
Your vids are brilliant. Practical and very useful!
Someone should give you a pat on the back for sharing your experience and knowledge in this field. You seem like a humble person with a passion for teaching and sharing information you've learned in this profession. I enjoy your videos, thanks for sharing.
I learned that if you can use products from the same company. I worked in the police photo lab and used Kodac products exclusive. Lab techs would help you when you had a problem, only if you used their products.
Kudos! Does glaze putty have issues in being applied over etch or surface primers? In your description it sounds like glaze putty is a miracle product that can be applied over any primed, filled or bare metal as well as over old pre-existing paint.
Thanks for the great videos. Used to do body work but have not for many year, just brushing up on new techniques and products before doing some work on my truck. My how things have changed. thanks
how fix pithole without glaze putty?
a question so its bondo , glaze then primer and paint ? of course sanding
Never used putty before. I will from now on though. Trying to feather the filler to the paint has always been a pain.
is Glaze the same as puddy??? the puddy generally is red. why is ur Glaze greenish in most videos??? u can use hardener with the Glaze also right ?? thanks for clearing it up
40 yrs in the profession,learned something new,scuff pad to clean paper!!!! always blew clean with air.with u tube you never know if you can trust what your watching but i've watched several of your vids, and you are dead on on procedures and products,great job.newbies follow his advice you won't be sorry
my panel is pretty smooth ..I do have a few dime sized areas where it's approx 1/32 of inch low spots …Will this fill those areas of do I need more body fill. the product I am using is called seal skin polyester glaze…thanks
Ive been a drywall finisher for 13 years. Might have to get into this. It looks pretty easy. Im surprised to see you sanding with 150 though. If we do that with the putty it'll be scratch central after prime and paint.
Hmm, I'm 17 and I bondo'd and primed some holes in my 69 skylarks roof. However! I got a cracked windshield what should I do for it?
Thanks your a good Teacher, im subscribe too your channel, keep them videos coming .
What's the most sandable sot putty on the market?I have tiny chips from stones hitting the hood, taking off the paint down to the metal. I don't want to send down the whole hood just for 20 pinholes
Excellent professional video 👌🏽happy thanks giving
Why not use a filler primer and then use the glaze putty
Can you give a link to this product?
Thanks for posting Donny
The music at the end was great. The whole video was done well. Nice job.
What is the exact product being used here?
Great videos, Donnie! I watch almost all of them.
Hello! This was extremely helpful to me. I don't work on cars, but I make costume props. You may not have intended this video for that use, but you've saved me a lot time, money, and frustration!
What is the putty glaze used ?
So the body shop will finish the sanding in 2000 to 3000 before primer and paint?
You should always eat a bucket of kfc when doing body work ..with a potatoes mac and cheese… And do it in your bloomers but good work…
Excellent information & great instructions. You are definitely passionate about auto body & paint. You would make a great teacher. Well detailed, beginners & amatures like me are very greatful to have instructions like this. Body work & paint is very intimidating. Thank you for making it more inviting & less apprehensive. I keep watching & learning.
"There's no wrong or right way, as long as it's done right." Lol great video thank you sir
I've been a painter and a finisher for over 40 years never ever never use spot putty go ahead and use spot putty watch with solvents does to it hoorah
