Fixing dints

hey all,

just wondering, ive seen people with dints fixed on there cars which is grey. I have been trying to find the body filler that is grey, i used the normal body filler and that is pink and am told it is not waterproof, then i tried metal mend filler with stainless steel and fibreglass in it but that dried brown. So whats the best way to fix and hide dints on a ea falcon, and what is that grey stuff.

Re: Fixing dints

Well the last time I used pink bodyfiller, it was a fibreglass-based filler and was waterproof.
The grey is probably primer; in my admittedly limited experience the is no such thing as grey bodyfiller. White and pink, but not grey

Re: Fixing dints

grey would be primer paint which im also told that if its covering bog then you need to get some top coat on it quick smart as the primer paint isnt water proof either. good to know if your fixing rust as all your works just gonna rust out again real quick unless it gets some topcoat to seal it all up.

Re: Fixing dints

fixing dints u need to use bodyiller, the pink stuff on plastic, the metal stuff for metal surfaces, prep the surface around teh dint by slight sanding it back, apply the bog, if its a deep dint by several layers and sanding each layer smooth until u have a smooth and even finish. then prime it with 2 pac primer and finally spray it with 2pac body colour. clear coat will put the final touch on it.

any otehr way will look dodgy and unprofessional. uf its a very very small dint i wouldnt worry about it.

bog applied to the surface along will never dry out in whatever body color u need. u always have to paint it no matter what. as for water proof or not ... thast news to me ... and i have fixed a fair few cars ...
