Well, my right hand man calved on me Saturday, the pinion seal pushed out of the rear end so all the diff fluid leaked out and the bearings in the rear end heated up and caused the rear end to pile up. Since it's in the shop anyways I figured I would give my 98 chevy a paint job. Ive got a friend good with a paint gun, and one to help me with filling in paint chips with bondo. I usually wouldnt do this to a truck, but she's got 330 000km and zero rust. runs and drives good, but needs a wheel alignment and the four wheel drive cuts out once in a while, which is either the actuator in the front differential or something in the transfer cadse. Does anyone have any wisdom to share with me as to how I should go about painting it? do I need to reprime? Do I need a clear coat or something?
