remember money IS an issue. Looking for something to last one year at most.

In my opinion if you don't have the bucks to do it right I'd do the epoxy primer job. The reason is that when you do have the money you're going to have to completely sand that maaco or scheib job off and start over. No paint manufacture that I know of will guaranty that their paint system will stick to the maaco job. What if the El cheapo job starts to peel? if I was realy short of funds I'd get the $60 Kirker epoxy primer kit before I got t6he cheapy Maaco job. I'm not slamming Maaco, they give you what you pay for. At least around here they will do a good job if you pay them to do a good job but you're not going to get the good job for $299.

I'v had nightmares trying to paint over Macco jobs. If it doesn't react with your new paint as you are spraying it, it will start peeling with in a year.

The only salution, if you ever plan on a nice paint job in the future, is to strip the macco stuff compleatly off.

So ya I will also go with the primer.

Go with a cheaper 2K Primer, there are Primers out there that are DTM primers at a inexpensive price, compared to brand names like Dupone, BASF< PPG etc....Try to find ProForm. See and see part # PF645 and PF646
