Omni primer

How would mp170 hold up to the elements? And does anyone know if it's suffering from the same failure to adhere to bare metal?

From the p sheet:

MP170 is a two component, gray non-chrome epoxy
primer designed to provide adhesion to cleaned
and sanded bare metal, metal, fiberglass and painted surfaces.

PPG at least claims it fine for that purpose.

Since your going to drive it like this, buy enough to put TWO good coats on.
Also considering where your located make sure temperature is at least 70 degrees for 4 hours after you spray it.
Epoxies go dormant real fast.

well i went with an even lower grade stuff

ppg phillips industrial coatings in a semigloss black, supposed to withstand the elements decently, moreso than the omni

gonna see how that works, it might suck, but it was cheap.

"ZERO INDUCTION EPOXY PRIMER - A technically advanced zero induction epoxy primer with excellent adhesion, toughness, and recoat properties. Intended for high performance OEM and refinish use wherever excellent durability, chemical and corrosion resistant properties are required. "

i bought enough for two sprayable gallons, and got a hvlp gun with the correct size nossle to transfer the most paint i can to the car.

Car is a Ford Gran Torino, so i might need more paint, but personally i have no idea how much i need
