Here the Ex is totally de-trimmed. All the glass is out, wheel flare off, tail light off, rocker trim off.
( body side mouldings were removed ages ago ) With a flat sanding block sand the primer smooth with 400
grit. Make sure you smooth the edges so that you can not feel a thing.
Wipe down the whole quarter panel with thinner to remove the wax and crud.
Scuff the whole panel with a 3M red scotchbrite pad.
Blow it clean with compressed air, and wipe it down with anti static degreaser.
Dirt is even more your enemy now.
This panel can not be clean enough from here on out.
Once you scuff and clean the panel, DO NOT touch it.
