Body filler over powder coating


 

Anybody know of a body filler that stick on powder coated metal? I have tried Bondo [linked by editor to product info at Amazon], but it does not stick. Any suggestions? Thanks!

I found that a bakeable caulking works good as a body filler. It takes a little more work.

Step 1 I found that if you put it on in thin layers and keep adding caulking with your desired tool, making sure you keep the bubbles out. Don't get to concern about the ridges.

Step 2 Bake for 60 minutes at 240 F.

Step 3 Let it cool for awhile. DO NOT COOL TO QUICKLY. Make sure it is all at the same temperature before moving on.

Step 4 Sand down.

Step 5 Repeat if necessary.

Step 6 Powder coat and bake.
