Do this before final masking and moving the vehicle into the paint booth. Primer is applied to bare metal and body filler before painting. Priming is necessary because paint alone will not properly adhere to or stick to bare metal. A spray can or spray gun is used to apply primer to all exposed metal surfaces (Figure 1–22). MIXING ROOM The mixing room, or mixing lab, is a power-ventilated area where refinish materials are mixed and prepared for application (Figure 1–25). Most large body shops have an inhouse mixing room.

It is larger and heavier and often uses a high-performance V8 engine. Full-size cars can have either unibody or body-over-frame construction. Full-size cars get lower fuel economy ratings, primarily because of their increased mass. J ROOF DESIGNS J J J J As shown in Figure 2–10, there are several basic body shapes or roof designs in use today: J A sedan refers to a body design with a center pillar that supports the roof. Sedans come in both two-door and four-door versions. J A hardtop does not have a center pillar to support the roof, so the roof must be reinforced to provide enough J strength.

If the amount of filler is as “big as a baseball,” use a 6-inch (152 mm) bead of hardener. Do not stir hardener into body filler or you can cause air bubbles and pin holes. Wipe back and forth to mix ingredients completely. (B) Apply the body filler to the clean body surface right away. It will start to harden in a few minutes. Try to spread it out to match the body shape to reduce filing and sanding times. (C) As soon as filler starts to solidify, use a coarse “cheese grater” file to rough out the shape.
