Good epoxy primer? Since New PPG dplv stinks on bare metal?
I am using all PPG products starting with the dx 579 acid etch wash and then I need to prime with a epoxy over the bare metal, PPG recommends their New environmentally friendly DPLV I have heard sucks since they had to stop making the old DP90 that adhered to bare metal much better, what can I use as a top shelf good quality bare metal epoxy primer??? I will be shooting DK-36 PPG primer over it and the rest of the car, followed by Deltron 2000 base color and clear.

I used this PPG MP 170 and it worked very well.

I can still obtain DP90 from our local PPG supplier.

Like 302 said, Check your local jobber stores. They might have some left. The new DP lead free works, but is no comparison to the old leaded version. The lead is a binder that sticks like crazy.
They have other products that work well if you want to stick with PPG......Bryan
