Hmmm, went paint shopping today, I can't find an epoxy primer for the life of me. Everybody wants to sell me etch primer.

Randy what's the verdict, you recommended a few coats of epoxy and then a urethane primer. I sanded a very small area yesterday and the metal is not as bad as I thought it was, it probably won't take as much build to smooth it out as I first thought. If it's smooth enough just from sanding can I get away with just applying a etch primer to the bare metal?

It seems everything on this car is turning out to be not quite as bad as it looks, which is great.

Ok, found the epoxy primer, so I'll stick with the original plan. Epoxy followed by Urethane.
