I'd say you have just scratched it so far,, Happy arms are to come. Hve fun.
I have some sealer and builder primer to put on there. Happy arms my arms are not so happy so i decided to take the day off from sanding take a little break,i have to spread all this fun out i don't want it to end to soon you know

Here is a question about the sealer.
should i apply it before putting on any putty to give it a base to bond too.
Or should i use the sealer after the putty is applied and sanded.

Shoot the epoxy primer/sealer over the SMC then use body filler and urethane high build primer.
Dunno how much you're willing to spend: PPG DP epoxy is awesome stuff but at $70/qt it's pricey - a gallon is probably around $220 or so..... I have used Kustomshop epoxy from TCP global and that seems to be pretty good too, half the price, $120 shipped.....

You can then spray sealer (reduced epoxy primer) between the high build primer and base coat - after you spray the sealer you only have a few days to shoot the base, otherwise you have to sand and spray another coat sealer.

Thank you for the explanation some articles i have been reading were about as clear as the big Mo river.
I have PPG JP377 epoxy promer/sealer And PPG JP202 2K primer. Do those sound ok

PPG JP202 is the "shopline" urethane high build primer - I used it on the '79 and on the Ghia. I like it better than the Kustomshop which seems to be thinner and does not build up as well. The shopline primer is easy to sand.

I have not used their JP375 epoxy but the JP385 which is a sealer that's designed to seal the primer before the base coat is applied.

Here's the shopline info-website (the search function is on bottom left).
