Frame and Chassis Paint

I'm planning a couple of future projects involving sandblasting and painting a truck frame and chassis.The first project though is going to be my car trailer(open)which I am going to rebuild ,by first sandblasting and painting it thoroughly.I haven't painted in a while,last time I did something similar I had it blasted and immediately primed it with PPG DP epoxy followed with Deltron paint,2 coats each.The DP primers of 10 years ago were impressive,but I know that all the new formulations have turned everything upside down.Maybe someone can give me some ideas on what to use for the stuff that's out there now,also how to shoot it and with what gun/settings?Time for the whole process is a consideration,I'm going to tow it to the blasters yard and shoot everything myself over there as soon as he is done with his thing,I'll have about 4 hours to have the finished product.

Yup The new formulations have turned everything upside down, Hell since i painted last (early 90s) the paint guns of today are upside down now....

I used PPG DP epoxy on the frame of my 34, wish I had not. Today I sprayed some of Souther Polyurethanes epoxy. It went on like cream and layed down real nice. Time will tell how durable it is, once I start laying on the 2K and block sanding. I would really like to repaint my frame with this stuff, but that would require a complete tear down and I don't think my wife could deal with it .

Seems time is an issue and CLEANING it will take alot of it.
Easiest is to get a gal. of Dupont Chassie Black. It's an Alkyloid Enamel and once it's dried,usually to the touch in 20-30 min,couple of days to fully dry,is some of the strongest frame/trailer paint around. Nice glossy finish and it's very tough. Second would be Nason Industrial Enamel as you can get it in colors. Gun is your choice. Harbor Freight comes to mind......
PSI depends on gun spec's.

If your just wanting to get something on it till you get around to painting,The SPI epoxy (or any good epoxy,PPG,Nason,ect) will get you there.

Frame and Chassis Paint

Thanks guys, appreciate that.I'm pretty hot to use the epoxy,the DP I used in the past was pretty bullet proof.Is this new stuff comparable?I see some good words for the Southern Poly around here.Is it because you got stock in the stuff? I'm not familiar with it.

Stock?? HUMMMM.....
BarryK is the man and he give's it to us straight. No sales hype crap,Just the real deal on products.
They are an Independant Co. like HOK was before Jon sold out.
Really good product because they actually care and a deicent price because they don't have a 1 million advertising bill to pay for each month.

Let's say I do go with the Southern Poly epoxy,what would be a good top coat?I'm looking for something superdurable (this is a trailer and some surfaces will see abuse) and single stage.I'm going to shoot the entire deal in one session.Excellent adhesion is probably the prime concern,I remember that the PPG Deltron was prone to chipping rather easily,whereas the epoxy primer could be smacked with a hammer and not go anywhere.
