Paintable Sealer?

i've sandblasted and primered my hood, fender, and hatch. they've been wet sanded and are ready to go. i can't afford to paint the car right now BUT what kind of sealer can i use on the body parts that can be painted later? like a year from now. i've got the gravity feed spray gun and compressor. not sure what grade thinner to use for sealers either. thanks.

If you are going to do the whole car in time, then get a gallon of epoxy.. You can seal all your work with it.. It is the only oxygen air tight product we use in the industry.. Nothing in and nothing out... Perfect for what you are wanting..

brand choice is up to you.. Personally I use Southern Poly Urethanes.. The quality, price and customer service cant be beat.. You can look up SPI here or go here and look at what they have

Best of luck to you

If they are wet-sanded? and ready for paint? and there is no sand through. Leave it.

But, I'd suggest not wet-sanding till you are closer to being ready to paint. Store the parts ready to sand instead of ready to paint. If they get scratched, scuffed, or such, you'll fix it when you sand them. Storing them with epoxy on them as Bondoking said would be excellent.

If the car is in only 2K primer, and you plan on driving it until you can paint, I would definately seal it with epoxy. If driving it, I definately wouldn't consider it ready for paint until it is time to paint. Any driving will mean that it will need to be sanded again anyway.
