storage of primed parts (short term)

this summer I did most of the body filler work and then sprayed the parts with a epoxy primer to seal up the work, as I knew I would not have a painter to finish as he flaked on me. I have hung the parts till now (a few months) I need the space to do other things untill summer.

If I place a NEW moving blanket down and in between the Doors/ fenders up off the ground will I regret it if they stay like that for 6 more months? They will be place on top of my finished frame, no metal to metal contact and loosely covered. This is in a cold dry place, unconditioned but insulated.

Re: storage of primed parts (short term)

Epoxy primer dries up very hard. About the only issue I can see is the re - coat window. Ideally you dont want to allow more than 7-10 days between the time the epoxy cures and the 2k primer is applied. The epoxy will dry up so hard that the 2k won't bond to it as well.

Not the end of the world though.. just make sure you knock down the epoxy with maybe 220 before you apply your primer. I'd knock all the parts down good then do one more light pass of epoxy.. then on to 2k, guide, block, 2k, guide, block etc.. seal and base / color coat.

Just me.. hope this helps.

Re: storage of primed parts (short term)

For years I have been body working parts as time between jobs allow, and I have like 3 or 4 trucks worth of sheetmetal in prime ready to go. If you do leave the panel in epoxy, scuff sand with 220 sandpaper then one coat more of epoxy then move on to the high build. You will be fine laying your panels out on the frame just use a blanket like above or even cardboard in between the shiny places to be. Good luck Jim
