    Primer is a disaster...PLEASE HELP!

    i finished bondoing the fiberglass baffle on my enclosure, and did some layers of primer. I got really impatient, and did multiple layers without letting each one dry first. after i "thought" the layers were dry, i proceeded to sand, and ended just ruining the primer. its really bad now. a week later, you can still put your fingernail in the primer and it'll show. i attempted to scrape the primer off, but that will take forever to do the entire box. my dad is friends with a guy who owns a body shop, and he said he'd get the box painted the exact color of the car for free, but i want to remove all the primer and give him a good surface to work with. how do i get all the primer off? scraping with acetone jsut isnt cutting it. could i just body fill over the primer?

    no body filler! think about it. even though you got filler over the primer still isn't gonna be dry! elbow grease is the only way. . . or a da
