    Hello all! I have but two questions so here they are. Below you will see my progress on my grill. I've already sanded 60 grit,220 grit,400 wet sand and everythings all cleaned up. In the picture i have a LITTLE bondo still on there.

    1. Can i paint over the fiberglass as is, or do i need to cover it up with bondo/hardner. Its the only thing stopping me from finishing it up today.
    2. How would i prep the metal mesh for paint? Im painting it black of course.

    All beneficial responses are welcome! :D

    HomerTaco told me you can get some degreaser and clean it off and spray. That just leaves your first question.

    I would say slow down a little. Anything you can see when it is primed will show up 10 times worse when you paint. Use 3m green tape if you don't want anything to bleed over and be careful with your tape lines. Sharp or overlapping tape lines will create a ridge that is a PITA to sand out. Multiple light coats will get you a lot farther than heavy coats. Temperature is important, so you might have to heat up the material a little bit. Good on ya for tackling it. Looks easy but it is actually a big job.

    If you are doing that outside, wait for a warmer day. It's way too cold for the primer and paint to cure right.

    If you are like me and have to get this done now :D get some space heaters and heat up the garage, unplug them before you paint but it has worked for me in the past

    practice on a piece of cardboard or an old can or bottle. When you are doing the final coats, you don't want to mess up.

    My mounting strategy: Epoxy!
