After I called and priced everything, he changed his mind and decided not to spend $2100 on materials alone.
no feathers ruffled at all
i have used tons of the cheaper line Primers.
none of them imo are really worth a crap.
i have used and really like SPI products for a few years and there Primers are top notch with a nice price to boot.
i got into the P30 SW Primer and P50 when i got hooked up with them and think its good stuff but the price sucks!
DTM primers i have never felt safe using on large open areas of bare metal.
Etch primers are 70s tech.imo
Epoxy all the way on Bare metal.
Everyones(top companies PPG,Dupont,SW,Spies ect.) products if you use them throughout are way over priced!
Best wishes Travis.
