primer and sealer

i was wondering if primer and the primersealer will keep water and other enviroments out as the final step
(rattle can type duplicolor).
i got it a 2 tone red oxide the top portion and the rod black primer on the side and lower part of it.

if i spray on the primer sealer will it last?

i really like the way it looks just primer was wondering if the primer sealer will make it last better..?

its on a 1965 elcamino looks good (seen no weather yet)

When you pay $3 for a rattle can primer you get $3 worth of quality and about 3 weeks protection. If you like the way primer looks then pick a good urethane in the primer color you like and have your local auto paint dealer add a good helping of flattening agent and then spray the car with that. All the protection of a good quality paint and the color and flatness of primer all in one.

We all have those days.

My point was that Duplicolor or any brand of rattle can primer/sealer really won't keep out the environment for very long.

Your idea about using clear should work but I would do a test panel first to make sure the clear is compatible with the rattle can paint just to be safe. You'd be surprised what bad things can happen when two different paints don't react well together. Makes a real mess.

You need a catalyzed urethane primer/sealer. PPG's K36 can be used as a sealer when the proper activator for sealer use is employed. A high quality catalyzed sealer will set you back a tidy sum, if all you are used to buying is rattle can junk.
