Thanks again. Will that primer sealer go down first under the epoxy primer, or ontop of it just before paint? Have only painted a few antique tractors and farm trucks where things were pretty basic,so have a lot of questions about doing my car properly. Jim

Read the previous posts, I do not use epoxy primer. I've never needed it. The less mill thickness you put on the better the paint job.

If you don't make mistakes. your not doing anything.

I have what i think is the same problem,i sand off the paint and primer,along with the rust,but the rusted area,as smooth as it is,has what looks like black stains in the metal,no pitting. i will follow the links from earlier posts but was told that there is some stuff that goes on like primer that actually inhibits rust and stops it? is this what you are all talking about?
Im going to sand as much out as i possible can,but dont want to create any damage either.

OK never mind,i should have read further before my post. But now i have another question,Do i have to use a brush to apply this stuff or can i use a spray gun?
