I think there's some other threads on this but I'm having trouble finding them. I have some specific questions to my build and want to connect with any body shop people (or those who have been down this path) on this forum. I have some questions about prepping the truck for paint. First my strategy is to paint panel by panel as I get my technique down. 3:11 Will it hurt my truck's body / paint if I drive it around prepped for paint as I show in the video? Or do I basically have to keep it in the garage till it's repainted? 0:012 I'm roughing up the old paint and will apply paint directly over it where possible (no primer). In some spots gray starts to show through, I'm assuming that's factory primer. Do I need to paint more primer over that again? 2:40 Clear coat damage goes into the seam around the rear quarter panel window. How do I remove that window? 0:42 Any tricks to install badges back in same location? 2:05 Assuming I will have to use primer (possibly a little fill?) where the paint is chipped through to the metal? If so I don't think I'll need much primer. Is there a brand or type I can buy in a rattle can? One that comes highly recommended? Bottom of right rear quarter panel has a crease where old trim attached. However, I have no way to get a dolly back there. Any tips to clean that up? Picture below, I forgot to get it in the video. Drywall damage wraps around and into the seam with quarter panel glass. Not sure how to clean that up without removing the window and not sure how to remove the window. There is a crease in the body panel at bottom there (along gray line). I'd love to get it pulled out, however, I cannot get a dolly or anything behind there as a second piece of metal is blocking access. There is a small rubber plug there but not sure I can get tools in side that void. Any tips? Or does this have to be repaired with body filler?
