Default Primer Help

I just finished up the body work for my nieces honda and I'll be painting the entire car for her as well. Does anyone have any ideas for primer that they have used in the past that I can use. So far I have used duplicolor and rustoleum sprayable primer and both have been garbage.

if you have bare metal showing, use an etch primer shopline jp 215 or, NOT and. a epoxy primer shopline jp375. if you have small to light imperfections use a 2 part acrylic urathane primer shopline jp 202. if you have medium to large imperfections use polyester primer. basically spray filler. jp 205. all of these are at painters supply store. all are 125$ a gallon/kit or less. epoxy primer has the best corrosion protection on bare metal, it just dosent build and sand as well as the acrylic, or polyester primer. you can also reduse the epoxy primer and spray it as a sealer. if you dont use shopline brand/ppg those are still the same components in every diffrent brand of primers to look for.

If you use the epoxy primer, you should recoat it with 2k primer within 72 hours, or you will have to sand it.

Or paint it. in that 72 is hour window. Also one thing i forgot about most epoxy's is the 15 min induction period after you mix it but before you spray it. Just make sure you get the p-sheets at the paint store for which ever products you end up getting.
