Oh yea, I use it all the time. it's really thick stuff. I don't think it's
as user friendly as some of the other brands but for the money it's
an amazing value. I am real happy with it. It's pretty durable.
What I don't like is it needs to be thinned a lot (I thin 1 to 1)
and it settles out extremely fast, even with a good reducer.
I can't use it in my gravity feed gun because it settles between coats
so fast it clogs the inlet.
I always use a really slow reducer with it because it seems to dry so fast,
makeing it hard to get a smooth finish. That makes you wait longer between
coats but it does go on smoother. I think it has to be sanded before painting,
I can't remember. I always let my primer cure longer than most people,
3 days to a week, so I always wet sand with 400 before topcoating.
Some may argue, but I think I get less dye back this way.
The stuff is really tough so make sure you clean your gun thourghly.
I do the same thing with this primer I do with my paint since it dries and skins
over so fast in the can. Aafter mixing a new gallon I pour off 3 one
quart cans worth for future use. Compensates for the fast setteling,
You just can't keep it stirred enough it seems.

sometimes i wonder when is a deal really deal. i cant imagine it seperating and settling like that. i've used atleast half dozen different brand primers and never had any settle, atleast like what you are talking. i think i would rather pay a couple extra dollars for a good primer that sprays good and sands easy. i hate block sanding primer so anything that makes it even slightly easier is worth it, imo.

Actually I agree with you, And I bought a different brand that I'm
planning on trying real soon. Since I haven't tried anything else before
maybe I will like the new stuff better and never go back. I hope I do.
I'm anxious to compare. Like you said, anything that makes it easier
usually is worth it.

There is nothing wrong with trying out new things and new defrent products....


A friend of mine brought me some Omni high build sv 2k primer once.......I never did like Omni so I wasn't looking foward on using it, but when I did, I was surprised........It had a better build, dried faster (but not to fast) and sanded easer then my Dupont 2K......and the price was less!!

It is now one of the only things that I use in the omni brand, glad my friend brought it by, or else I would have never used it.
