sand and primer question

I have a '61 Apache that I need to sand and primer until I have the money to paint. What kind of sandpaper is good for this (grit). What primer works the best? Thanks.

I am confused.

Why would you want to mix sand and primer? That would make it awfull rough.

320 grit wet and dry. If it`s not going to be exposed to the elements just use a standard primer. If it going to be exposed use a two part urethane primer/sealer. HTH

Good Luck

Troy

troy-curt's talking about a black paper called 'wet or dry' as you can use it wet w/water or dry. Using it wet makes a very smooth finish, but dry keeps moisture away from any bare metal (thus less chance of rust) As he said, a two-part (catalyzed) primer will keep it well protected from the elements. If you encounter rust- FIX it, don't cover it up w/primer- you'll just be asking for future work. Good Luck!

I would say 320 wet would be good. I used Nason(dupont) primer/sealer(ready to spray), or Shopline(PPG) Epoxy primer(good if you have bare metal spots) it is 2 part so you need the activator.
