Different primer questions
 
What is the difference between yellow primer sealer and grey primer sealer. I am going to be primering my blazer and leaving it for a while. Which would be better for me? And about how much would each cost? And do they both just spray on with a spray gun or would I have to add something to it?

theres no difference it depends on what color you want to paint yours, if its gonna be black id go with darker one (black/gray) or if you wanna paint your truck with yellow/orange go with lighter sealer yellow..etc.

Well I am going to be painting my blazer white. But I want to re primer it and leave it for a while. Like a year or two. So I wanted yellow primer. I saw a kid at my school with a 67 chevy that was a dark yellow primer. And it was smooth. But I saw a blazer like mine with a light yellow primer and it had black splotches on it. Why does it have black?

Like these are all yellow.

The fogged on black is used to find the low places when block sanding.

What primer would be better for a white paint? Grey or yellow?

mitmaks 08-01-2004 02:20 PM

those black splotches are guide coat, its thin spray over all primered surfaces so when you sand whole car down you see where theres low spots.
if you want to paint it white id go with yellow, more bright sealer primer.

Ok thanks for the help. My dad said something like the yellow needs a reduser or soemthing and he doesn't know how to spray it. Is it just like regular primer sealer and I could use my uncle regular old spray gun? Or does it take special things? This is my first project so I dont know much. But I am learning. And about how much does this cost?

Search the knowledge base in the body paint forum, this has all been covered many times. Then come back and ask what you don't understand, there is a lot of information there on priming and preparation.

You really need to get the tech sheets on the primer and it will tell you all you need to know about reducer and hardener if used.

It will also tell you the gun to use. Most any automotive gun will do the trick to some degree. However some will be much better than others.

Do you have an idea of the brand you will be using and the part number?

Blazin88 08-02-2004 01:50 AM

No Idea. I am looking for suggestions.

MARTINSR 08-02-2004 07:50 AM

What is available to you? There are a few different companies who offer a "buff" or beige primer, the first that comes to mind is Uroprime by DuPont. The problem with letting us tell you is we don't know what you have available to you.

Not all products are available in every area. Sure you could get them on the net or something like that, but it is always best to be able to walk into the store and talk to the people you bought it from.

Go to a body shop or two in town or near by and find out where they get their paint and primer products. Then go by that store (jobber) and find out what they have.
