seems like anyone can get a car straight with that stuff. Opinions?

We don't feel the primer gets to breathe below.

I feel like a pitcher in the roid era, then again, we do use PLC for the first round which is a poly primer so I guess we're cheating too.

Having a good amount of flash time on the primer and then the slick sand is what is done..Just think of it as thin filler and go for it..can be a real help on some cars..Saves a lot on metal working when you are trying to make book on a job..

I usually put it right on top of the bodywork with no primer between.
It will take care of any minor imperfections, and sands very easy.
I'll top it off with a scuffcoat of urethane primer.

Yes, it's cheating.
But anything other than Laquer primer surfacer, and Laquer paint, would be considered cheating by some.

They don't sell it out here. I used featherfill though and it's really thick. A lot thicker than PLC., and according to the tip size recommendations it seems super thick. We have gotten Radeon (?) Spies Heckler but the car was yanked before we sprayed it cause we ignored it for too long but hear that's pretty thick too.

Have been using the poly primer for a long time on just about every job. I just recently started using one made by duratec, this one has micro balloons in it that make it soooo easy to sand its ridiculous. Don't know if you can get it out there but give it a shot if you get the chance. The stuff must be topcoated with a 2K or epoxy before you can base because it is so porous. The guy that turned me onto it is a good friend of mine and has been using it a while now and used it on a 64 vette he has that gets driven all over the country. He claims that it is very chip resistint as his car does not have a mark on it with the extreme driving he does. It is a true street car that runs in the 9's and has been to the event drag week they have once a year. Well anyway after using this primer it does make your typical poly primers seem like concrete to sand, even the slick sand.
