Question Primer and Paint

I am going to repaint my 55 Belair it is now painted acrilic enamel
I have repaired several spots and primed them with a primer colored near the color of the car,it will be painted the same enamel again , do I have to re prime the whole car or can I just ruff the paint and block everything and paint?

No need to reprime but you should paint it with a sealer after an overall block sand and before the color.

I agree. The sealer will provide a uniform surface for the new top coat and will help protect the new paint from any reactions from the underlying repairs.

Thanks for the info, one other thing everone states that the temp should be around 70 for the paint to cure, how long do I have to keep it that warm as it is hard to keep the garage that warm up here for too long, I might have to wait for warmer weather.

get the garage and car as warm as possible. spray the sealer, turn the heat back on for an hour, spray the paint then turn the heat back on again as soon as you are done. once the painting is done you want the car to set in the warm garage for atleast 24 hours before you remove it.

That's the idela for sure but I just painted my truck a couple of weeks ago in a ~65F booth with no additional heat using catalyzed urethane. I got fast reducer spec'd for the cold weather and the job went great. Don't advise it unless absolutely necessary but it can be done.
