hi guys my car is at the body shop getting ready for paint. the body was striped and any little waves were repaired. the car was then strayed with a fiber filled primer and sanded. while sanding the primer we noticed a small dip in the hood. the body man added more filler primer to that spot and sanded it out. is this going to be a problem, i feel this should of been repaired before the primer. it appears that a short cut is being taken. any input? the car will be painted with a tinted primer this week. thanks

no problem there, alot of times i fill in with alittle primer and block it out.you know when you can and when you need filler.BUT to much primer can CRACK just like bondo,oh i hate to use that word[let,s call it plastic ok].you,ll be ok sounds like the guy knows what he is doing.

Not the 'B' word.....I too prefer plastic or polyester, besides I dont know of anybody that uses that stuff anymore(the actual 'B' word). But like what was already said, its not a problem, as a matter of fact, its a very good idea to have something under your filler, cause if it ever gets a chip in the paint and moisture is allowed into the filler thats as far as its going cause youe sub-strate is protected, and you wont have the 'R' word. Besides that, nobodys perfect, nobody can straighten out a car on the 1st lap, especially if its black.
