Re: Painting questions

My limited knowlage/research showa that epoxy primer is to promote adhesion and seal up old paint from the new paint.

Normal primer will not seal raw metal (it will rust through primer easy) while epoxy is a sealer.

PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong.

Re: Painting questions

Ditto on the isocyanites warning. That is very nasty stuff. I painted a base clear combo on a show truck with a bad mask and learned the hard way what it will do to you in one shot. SEVERE flu like symptoms for a week and significant memory loss for the rest of my life. BE CAREFUL. You need an air supplied respirator for that stuff and it will go through uncovered skin. I forget what else... [img]images/graemlins/thud.gif[/img]

Re: Painting questions

I hope to be getting to this stage in a month or two [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] ....I don't know much about painting, so I have been trying to read up on it, so when I get there I have some idea...I think I am thinking of my paintjob as more of a protection against rust than for the showroom, but would like to try and do my best. Now, had read a few times that primer will absorb mosture (and thus rust underneath), but are we saying there is "epoxy primer " that you can cover the bare metal and not have to paint immediately to seal it up? If so, is there a reason for the other kind of primer? I would like to primer some pieces as I finish with them, but wouldn't have time to get the whole thing done and get it painted fast enough if the primer is going to absorb moisture over time...so this epoxy primer would be a great thing for me!

Re: Painting questions

I believe your statements are true.
Epoxy will seal raw metal, and your old paint from the new
Normal primer is used to promote adhesion, and to fill small blemishes (there are even "high build" primers that they say you can hide a quarter under)

I would recommend going to an automotive paint store near you. Ask lost of questions, they should be able to help.
I've also heard that you should use a paint "system" because different brands may not be happy with each other.
