rattle can epoxy primer

I originally wanted the rattle can epoxy primer to spray an INSIDE AREA ONLY of the roof of my 33 Ford. Down the road when I do the car I plan on using my spray gun/gallon mix of epoxy to finish off the interior & exterior portions of the car. I currently have the roof off in preparation for chopping the top. The car was originally painted & I left it that way for rust prevention, figuring I would totally strip it when needed. However, doing some repairs to the drip rail area that had rusted led me to discover some prior owner had lap welded a section into the roof about 3 inches above the windshield frame. There is a major reinforcement piece beneath this area that housed the wipers & I guess provided some support to the roof. I've removed this support piece so I can hammer & dolly the suspect area after repair. Subsequently I was planning on using the rattle can epoxy to protect this small area only. Maybe there is a better way - what other materials might be a better solution ? I will eventually have a head liner in the car, so I don't plan on spraying a top coat.

Thanks,
Mike.

Try Spray Max 2K Epoxy Primer in a Rattlecan...

Recently purchased two cans of Spray Max 2K Epoxy Primer PN 680032 from Eastwood; sprayed bare metal trunk compartment in a mid-engine exotic because I needed a paint that wouldn't disolve from a drop of brake fluid. Spray Max 2K Epoxy Primer spray nozzle worked exceptionally well, layed down a very nice even coat which curred overnight. I will definitely be using this paint again... Was very impressed with results. As good as any professional spraygun, without the cleanup mess.

First post and he's hawking a product? Look at how that's written, he even lists the part number. This has SPAM written all over it! Eastwood junk!

Yeah Red, now that I read it again it is a little "gushing".

If you're just doing a small area and don't have a compressor, why not use one of the cheep spray setups that use a bottle and aresol propelant can? mix a small amount of good epoxy and don't worry about not using all your primer in one day.
just curious.

Northstar....I used one of those little bottles and aresol cans for my boat trailer repair. I was skeptical at first but it actually came out pretty nice, perfect deal for doing a trunk or engine bay.

Only rattle can product I use with respect to primer or paint is weld through primer, better than nothing at all...all others, don't trust them, don't use them. If I need a little Epoxy, I mix a little Epoxy. At $22.00 a can, I don't see any upside over using a product that I mix, that I monitor induction times, that I apply with proper air pressure.
