A minor body work question

My truck had been repainted a few years back however my roof gutters are really corroding and staining the paint as water drips down the pillars plus i got a few spots of rust on the crimp sections on the bottom of the door. I was planning on grinding off the rust spots , treating with ospho, but im told you must prime over ospho with an *epoxy* primer in order for paint to adhere [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img], which unfortunately you cant get in small quantities.

My only other option that i know of is POR-15 kit + a $20.00 can of their special primer [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img]
Does anyone know another primer (cheap) that will work over ospho?
Its not too bad now but if i keep putting this off , its gonna really get nasty i can tell...

You only need the POR15 primer if you plan on painting over fully cured POR15. If you follow the directions and wait 2 or 3 hours, when the POR15 is still a little tacky, you can paint over it with regular paint.

Re: A minor body work question

Thanks AL,
I did want to try that sample kit from POR but didnt want to have to buy a whole quart of the $20 primer also, i only have a few small minor spots to touch-up. Im gonna order the clear sample kit because it supposedly is smoother for exterior finishes.

Re: A minor body work question

I've had a few freinds try and POR15 does NOT make a good exterior finish. LOL It goes on too thick, but it's the greatest invention since the wheel.
