Skim Coating Before Blocking | June 2015

66 Chevelle Bodywork

Skim Coating involves spreading a layer of body filler over the entire car to ensure that when you paint it, it’s smooth and there are no gaps or holes.  Blocking is the way you smooth minor surface waves and imperfections, much smaller than dents and dings. These are typically high and low spots so small you really can’t feel them, but you will certainly see them in the wavy reflections of light in a glossy top coat.
