I ground off the E-coat using a Summit Racing 3˝ 80 grit abrasive disc. This will rough up the metal surface. The plastic filler will need this rough surface in order to adhere properly. Note how the area below the Chevron impression has been ground. Areas like this often need a little smoothing, as imperfections may be caused by the stamping process.
