Body work
« on: November 30, 2017, 09:34:03 AM »
I had a blow out in my Mazda 3, it did some damage to the car.

It destroyed the inner fender plastic, and cracked the rear bumper, and knocked off my side skirt.

I want to clean this area up before I put the side skirt back on.

I’m not the best at body work, any tips.

 Clean it, rust prohibitor, wait 24 hrs, prime, wait 24 hrs, top coat.

Its cold now, you need a heated area to do this right.

Oh I know!

Step one.  Cut hole in roof, trunk and hood.

Step two.  Place 50lb bag of rock salt in each hole.

Step three.  Wait.

Problem should be solved within 2 to 3 years. :mrgreen:

Are you going to address the other side as well? I'm sure it isn't an isolated problem. If your only planning to do this side, I wouldn't put much into it. Even if this side lasts, the other side will rust out under the plastics anyway.
