black prime maintinece

hi, i recently painted a car of mine flat black primer... it looks good but its now getting drity and ugly from water getting on it, and lotsa dirt.... i need to clean it but what do i use ? if i use a rag the rough primer will rip it up and ill have bits of clath all over my car... and a scrub brush leaves scratches in it, also since i painted it, i can still somewhat see spots where i sprayed over body filler, liek it has a different texture to it so you can see where bare metal was, and primer... if i do another coat will this all go away? or am i stuck with it. thanks a lot!

You need to do a little more work to have a permanent primer look. Actually, what you have is a first step. Now sand that primer, spray on a new uniform coat (this coat will hide the different surfaces you now see) and spray that with a couple coats of catalyzed urethane clear with a flattening agent. This will give you the hot rod primer look you want with all of the benefits (wash-ability, rust proof, UV proof, etc) of a top-notch gloss job.

hey, thanks for that, but my worry is that i wont be able to paint it after that... i did this just for a temporary look because i might end up painting it another color eventually ( especially if i cant take the flat black car in the so-cal heat) so will the catalyzed urethane ruin my chances of just spraying over? or will i have to sand all that off again and re-prime? thanks...

No problem. a perfect urethane base is perfect to support a perfect repaint. Just an overall sanding w/320, wash down w/ oil/grease remover and it is ready for any sealer/color/clear you want to do.

I have found that John Deere farm impliment black will give the perfect semigloss primer look but it is a top coat. it doesn't sunfade and washes up great.

Forgot to mention it is available in spray cans,quarts,gallons. if you get the spray make sure it sprays...
