In this post, we will show and demenstrate the process taken to complete the our 1963 Corvette Red Oxide Primer task.
We finished the initial round of body work and have sprayed both the epoxy primer (red oxide) and G2 primer (polyester high build, black).
Here is the body in the red oxide epoxy primer. Epoxy primer is a catalyzed primer that seals up the body and also prevents corrosion. This is one of many coats.
Here is a side view of the vehicle after epoxy primer.

The next primer is G2 polyester high build primer. This primer is basically spray-able body filler. It provides a thick layer that “flattens out” all the minor imperfection in the body. This layer is sanded out to make the body extremely flat. The G2 also locks everything down and has minor shrink back which helps prevent sand scratches.
