I used an air gun to blow sanding dust out of any pinholes. This step is very easy to overlook but is very important. Blow off the filled areas every time you are finished sanding. RESTORING A HOT ROD Paint ge:38 I used an 80 grit abrasive pad on a right-angle grinder and ground down the high spots on the welds as well as roughed up the surrounding area to give the filler a tooth to stick to. I used a Summit Racing DA and 80 grit to rough up the area around the welds. Now, the fill area for this sail panel weld will extend well past the weld.

One of worst things that can happen in a project is for a car to fall off a jack or jackstands. It’s a safety issue. Here, the Firebird is securely supported by eight Craftsman 3-ton high lift jackstands (SHC-950159) as a Summit Racing low profile floor jack (SUM-G1020)—the best floor jack I’ve ever used—lifts the new floorpan in place. The difference between a cheap jack and a good one is how easy you can control it when it’s lowered. Twist the handle on a cheap jack, and many of them tend to come down too quick.

I primed the sides and sail panels of the quarters with PPG K38 using the SATA 100B spray gun. It is a high-build urethane primer mixed 4:1 with K201 catalyst. I mix right in the SATA RPS disposable cup, which has measurements on the side for different mixing ratios. It also has a built-in filter, so there’s no need to strain the material. We primed these panels first as it was going to take a few rounds of filler and sanding to get the sail panels perfectly smooth. We did not want to load up primer on areas of the car where it was not needed.
