Ran out of SPI High Build Euro Primer
I ran out of SPI Euro primer and have a Fender on the car left to block. Given that Im on a tight budget and they dont have SPI in quarts Im wondering what would be my best alternative... if it really matters?
The way Ive been applying my coats;
Seal metal with Epoxy... light coat of SPI Euro Primer, Skim with Evercoat rage extreme, 2 heavy coats of SPI high build primer, Block..Block..block..block.. Sand with 400, Seal with HOK Ko-Seal white that I will scuff when ready to shoot HOK paint.
Im wondering if I use a featherfill G2 polyester primer on the last fender to block and HOK Ko-Seal will it be a big difference from the SPI high build to block? or what other brand do you guys recommend of Urethane primer that they sell in quart?
I walked into a local paint store today and asked about primers. They said there is no such thing as Urethane primers and pointed me to the shelf of cheap polyester primer and he said that was the way to go...the best primer on the market.. for all.. sealing metal etc etc.. I started explaining to him what I have heard about the differences ie; sandability, shrinkage, etc.. and a person came out of the back and called me aside and began explaining to me that most customers dont care about these fine details and the high end stuff would be way out of their price range etc.. we started talking about what I have learned over time and he agreed but said most customers only care about price.. LOL he gave me a huge discount on other items I purchased and mentioned that he will give me a discount and beat any price around on 'high end' products that he can order for me.. I guess a way of paying me for shutting up ..
