Aluminium etch primer

I need to prime an aluminum radar arch on a 40' boat and need a top of the line etching primer for it. Does anyone have any recommendations on one? Thanks in advance for any help!! Matt

There are a number of good primers meant for aluminum. I painted aluminum bodied dragsters and used a primer that was a yellow color. I forget the names but there are many out there. Go to your local automotive paint supply , they can help. remember to sand the aluminum with 400 wet to get the surface etched for adhesion of the primer.

SPI Epoxy will do a better job than etch primer

Thanks for the tip on the SPI epoxy, when I went to there website and read the tech on it though it said it was a self-etch primer which is what I am looking for... Thanks again,,, Matt
