Rattle Can Primer

I am doing rust repair on my zuk and was looking for suggestions on rattle-can primer. I used Dupli-color in the past and it seemed rust would come back thru overnight.

I will be covering the entire floor in POR15 so I know rust wont come back thru but there are a few places in the body that I need to cover up for now. It will probably be a year or so before I get it painted so I need something that will withstand the elements.

Suggestions?

Re: Rattle Can Primer

You tried *Rustoleum* (sp?)? They carry it here at most auto parts stores and department stores like Fred Meyer.

I've seen it work before...

Re: Rattle Can Primer

Primer is porous, so regardless of whether it is rattle can or otherwise, unless it is sealed it will rust. Use a sealing primer and you have the benefits of primer and the sealing of paint.

Re: Rattle Can Primer

Do not "cover up" rust that is like miracle grow for it, if you wanna do it and do it right, sand it down to bare metal, then if you wanna be a perfectionist you can use a lil bondo and patch it over to make it smooth, It all depends on what you wanna do...

Re: Rattle Can Primer

I've had the best luck with Rustoleum, but prep is always critical for paint. Lately I have been using
Jasco metal etch after sanding down to bare metal. Its just phosphoric acid, and will eat only rust,
not metal.

Then I pre heat just enough to remove all moisture, or you are just trapping it to cause peeling or
downstream cancer.

Re: Rattle Can Primer

most of my zuke is painted with rustoleum (black) and hasn't shown any signs of rust, fading, or wear so far (been about 18 months).

my input for rattle-can spraying is to buy the trigger attachment thingy for spray cans. otherwise your fingers will hurt for days from pressing the spray button so much. good luck,

Re: Rattle Can Primer

I would remove all rust first, get it down to bare metal, then use a Vinyl Wash . This is a sealer as well as a metal etch. Good chit man!!!!! Comes in Olive drab [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Rattle Can Primer

I don't understand why you don't just go for the POR-15 right now!!!
You won't regret it and it will cure the rust problem NOW!

I'm presently working for the Canadian distributor of POR-15 and I myself have used the product for the last 4 years and it works.
Don't waste good money on anything else they are ALL inferior. You can apply POR right over the rust after prep and not worry about it again. This is the paint of choice for mega $$$,$$$ restos for a reason. Do yourself a favour and do it once not 2 or 3 times!
