Meanwhile, the crew did some bodywork on the custom firewall and prepped it for paint. A gray coat of epoxy provides corrosion protection.
It didn’t need much, but we skim-coated the panel with Evercoat Ultra filler and blocked it flat as can be.
After filler, the panel was sprayed with a polyester filler, and block sanded some more.
The polyester is blocked until flat, removing any sanding scratches or marks left from the previous steps. It is sanded to 220 grit, and then brought back to the booth for some 2k high-build primer and more block sanding.
The seams were also sealed to prevent corrosion.
