Part Two: Shoot The Primer
After the entire truck was sanded with the 220 and all the chips and scratches were feathered out, a coat of high-build primer was applied. This primer goes on very thick and is used as a blocking primer to get the truck even straighter. One thing to note about the primer Maaco uses: It's the same professional stuff custom shops use. If you plan on doing bodywork at home before taking your truck to Maaco, make sure to check with the manager about what materials to use. If you use spray-paint-type primer, you will get charged to strip it off because it conflicts with the company's warranty.
