Question about SPI

I am currently attempting my first paint job, and I have been looking arround for the primers that I need to start out with. I have heard great things about SPI, and would like to use their product.

Now, I would search for a jobber, but I actually live in Canton, Ga which is really close to their location. I intend to call them tomorrow about this, but I was wondering if anyone else has been able to buy directly from them ie. drive to their place and pick up paint, or does it have to be ordered?

Thanks, Kevin

They generally ship if no jobber is available. I just got of the phone with them and an order is on its way.

lol, I think that they are farther from me than I thought, it looks like they are in blairsville? I dont know what the canton is for.

I called them though, and there is a full on distributor about 20 minutes from me , its a really nice place too.

one thing, for the epoxy primer, it says to clean with wax and grease remover then let sit for an hour or so, then apply on rust free metal. My question is, in this humid Georgia weather, flash rust takes about 10 minutes to form, how can I avoid this?

Just clean real good with wax and grease and wipe down as good as you can. Go mix your primer, fill your gun , and get taced off to paint and thats all the time you need to give it. Dont worry about a little flash rust the primer will hold it down. Don't put it on in to thick of coats I've noticed it likes to run if you get carried away with your gun.

the reason for the wait time is to ensure the cleaner has totaly evaporated. you can speed the process with air and blow dry. just make sure its all evaporated. sometimes it hides in the sanding scratches and such.

Ok, sounds good, I guess I'll try to speed it up a bit with some air, should I be painting in small sections or is a whole panel ok?
