This is great info. Some of my issues are.
1 I donít have an expensive gun. It is a siphon type with a screw on cup. I bought it years ago and the last time I painted avehicle was about 25 years ago to paint a Datson pickup. At the time I was working at a Mack dealership and used Mack paint. I believe that it was manufactured by Kerker Chemical co. It turned out not all that bad. I have no idea what kind of paint it was but it looked ok considering what I started with.
2 I need to apply some body filler. Should I primer it first or apply the body filler(Rage Gold)?
3 There seems to be as many types of primers as there is paint. What would be a good primer to protect the metal until I am ready for painting if I go with acrylic enamel?
4 I have a good half mask, a home made paint booth made from plastic, and some box fans with some furnace filters.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
