Since the whole idea of powder coating is to have a pristine chemically and mechanically clean sand blasted white metal surface on which to melt the plastic powder, I can't imagine what kind of primer would enhance the process. I have my pickup frame, running gear, fender wells, and a bunch of other parts down at my 'coaters right now. I'll ask him if he knows anything about that. He has pretty good credentials, does a ton of oil field and refinery work such as the 6,000psi refinery heat exchanger enclosures he was doing when I dropped off my frame.
