sandblasted parts

I just bought some sandblasted fenders that were sprayed with a cheaper 2K primer.

I have always used epoxy primer on the bare metal after blasting.

Suggestions?

Re: sandblasted parts

My first concern would be if they are warped from the sandblasting.

Re: sandblasted parts

They appear to be straight. I have not tried to fit them but they look and feel good.

I'm no body guy so I have to follow the directions and the best methods. Anything I ever took to the metal I used an epoxy primer.

The are original fenders off a 72 Ambulance. I have to patch a 115 outlet hole on each one but other than that they are in incredible shape.

Re: sandblasted parts

I'd test fit them before moving ahead.
If they fit, then I'd take off the urethane primer and start over with epoxy. This way you know they're going to last.
