Pick your primer

I know that kinds and types of primer are sometimes a prefrence or trial and error type process. But, I was just curious what kind/brand of primer you all prefer to use when you have some body filler in areas and new sheetmetal (ie. bed panels, doors or fenders) on your project. I have been using OMNI 2k2 high build, and its not bad but I would like to try something else next time I prime.

Thanks for your input

Depends on what your doing IMO.

The smart thing to do is stick with one particular brand. Example, if your paint is going to be PPG then use PPG primers.

On bare clean and properly prepped metal you want to use a two part epoxy primer followed by a 2K filler/primer.

On fiberglass I use a polyurethane primer first followed by a high build 2 K primer.

Marhyde makes a good 2k urethane filler primer called ultimate. Cheaper then ppg k200, around $65 a gallon with activator, it thick and has plenty of fill, and sands nicely. They make it in real light grey(tintable), and yellow buff color.
