I have a primer question

To be honest Im being lazy and dont feel like searching. All I want to know is what primer to shoot my car. I want black thats all, not grey. I plan on leaving the car in primer this year, bad idea? Do I need to seal it? It probably wont see any weather but you never know this is Ohio. My car pretty much was black and has had primer shot over the paint already. It also has been sanded in some areas, just a mix of different finishes at this point. If you have a black suggestion please make sure to tell me manufacturer,part number, thinner to use and wharever else. Its the 40 chevy in my album.
Thanks in advance

I am assuming you are stripping to bare metal first?
Epoxy primer is the way to go. You can get it in black. Everyone here loves the epoxy primer from Southern Polyurethanes Inc.
Storing it this way is fine but don't leave it in the sun. (Primers don't have sun protection like paint does.)

After that year you will want to scuff the epoxy, give it a re-coat and then a coat of 2K urethane primer before your topcoat.

I like PPG Epoxy. Their black is DP-90. 40 Chevy is right on that it provides no UV protection, and must be scuffed to topcoat outside of a few days.

You can't get DP-90 anymore.
PPG only sells their new DPLF epoxy primers and although I have never used it, from what I hear it is not liked nearly as well as their old DP primer.
Like I said before, everyone here raves about the epoxy primers from SPI. I used it for the first time recently and was impressed as well.

My bad. I use DP-90LF...and I still like it.

Why don't we have a "Cheers" emoticon? If we did, I would place it here.
