well,i had the liners blasted inside and out,followed all the prep steps that were dictated by sem in order to use their problem plastic repair material.with that i used their reinforcing repair tape on the back side to reinforce the repair.for the body filler i used sem's no swell plastic filler.it's designed to be used on plastic surfaces and not swell or distort the substrate underneath it.before priming i applied ppg's dpx 801 Plastic Adhesion Promoter to any remaining bare plastic. i applied three coats of the ppg dps3051.sanded and re applied the dpx 801 to any remaining bare plastic.followed by a coat of dark grey sealer.(the exact ppg number escapes me but it's in the deltron line)followed by two coats of sem's hot rod black.
for the underside,i knocked down the snadblasted surface with 220 da paper and applyed (wait for it) two coats of dpx 801 to the entire surface,followed by grey sealer,followed by two coats of black base coat made off the bank followed by two coats of ppgs flex and flat clear coat.the flat on the bottom side is the way to go.hope this helps. i did leave out the masking/cleaning details because it's something that goes without saying with any auto body repair work.I'm a big fan of sem products and their instruction sheets/downloads are very good and tell you which cleaning products etc they wish you to use with their products.

Wow there's a mouthful. Now I remember why I'm not a bodyman. I can't read all the directions.

i wish i could just get a spray can and be done with it but i can'tyour not missing anything it's a curse,i've got a pinstriped fridge and had(damn winter) a flamed/striped mailbox.i gotta post some pictures of the drive in speakers/stand i restored.i look @the motor work and some of the chassis stuff that people do and i wish i spent more time on my chassis than i did. i think if i did it again i'd go nuts with alot of stuff that you'd never see knowing what i know now.
