I also have had good luck with red oxide primer in dry climates. Regular grey primers will rust in a few months requiring sanding (once again) down to bare metal. You can however get an etching primer that will not rust. They are fairly expensive costing wholesale around $90.00 per gallon. They also require a catalyst to kick off. There are some aerosol versions of etching primers available, Eastwoods has one, but they are extremely expensive at $20.00 a pop! The flat black primers look good but I have had no experiance with them. Doe's anyone know if the black primers hold up to the humidity without rusting?

Thanks,

Dave H.

don't waste your time. Do it all at once. I don't care what primer you use, primer absorbs water, period!

I have used Martin Seniour Epoxy Primer and it will bead water for a while out in the weather. It does not absorb moisture and it is hard as a freakin rock. It is very good for bare metal.
