curb rash repair...jb weld
 
ok so i was told i could use jb-weld to repair my curb rash , and my girlfriend happened to be at the store when i heard this so i called her and asked her to grab some . she brought me jb quik weld . will this be ok to use ? is it any weaker than the reggo stuff?

how bad is the rash? Might have to do a few layers. I thought I could fill mine in one go but it's too wet.

JB weld is pretty hard to sand. If the rash isn't too bad a body filler should do.

mikebontoft 12-06-2012 09:55 PM

yes it hard to sand. electric sander ftw.

sam fisher 12-06-2012 09:58 PM

but thanks for the info . and mike , this stuff was hardining before i even started putting it on , it filled the rash very well... the last time i used regular jb it was much more watery than this . i was actually worried about just that lol. i think the quik weld " mistake " buy was actually a good thing :D

i will sand it tomorrow , maybe 60 grit will rough it out good ...?.?...and then a higher grit for smoothing.?..?

btw , its only been on for less than an hour and is ROCKED. i like this stuff

I spent a couple hours cleaning and sanding some wheels today for home refinishing, second set I have done this year.

I use 80 as the most course when touching up the rim edge rash.
I use a rubber block sandpaper holder and clean up the face of the rims, most small nicks will disappear. 80 grit, 120 grit to smooth it out. If I am going to prime and paint, I stop there until I have a coat of primer, then mild sanding with 320.

Here is a crappy cell phone pic of one of the rims I was sanding today, it had tiny little nicks all around as if it were used as a cymball, they all disappeared without taking but a tiny bit off.
