Painting over Bondo. Fairly sure any primer is fine. Don’t use hardware store “snake oil” paints “for plastics” anywhere near a nerf gun.
Can body filler go over primer?
Can you apply body filler or bondo over primer filler? Yes. You CAN apply over sanded 2k primer, or bare metal. Be sure to have the area sanded with at least a 150 so the filler has some TOOTH to grab to.
How soon can you paint over Bondo?
I let my filler sit for around 30 to 45 minutes before I sand it. Once its blocked out I go straight for the primer. I believe the shrinkage that people see is in the primer not the bondo. Let the primer sit for two or more weeks the longer the better.
