Sealer question??

I've seen several post that brought up sealers for filler or primer. Can't find one at the moment so I'm trying to figure this out. I'm getting my Panel truck ready for paint and need to know if I need a sealer over the filler before primer or over the primer before color?? Also I asked about painting over the front fenders on the truck because they are already finish painted just the wrong color. They are perfect and I would like to know if I can just scuff and prime then paint or do I need a sealer for that?? If I need a sealed, what kind??
Like I've said with other questions I've asked this is my first paint job and need to ask lots of questions to get it right the first time.

Thanks folks

Depends on what type of paint the fenders are painted with, and what type of paint you will be applying over them. IMO it is always a good idea to use a priming sealer.

I like to seal after primer right before paint. The brand I use requires the paint to be applied after an hour. It 'seals' all the stuff you've done- like welding, filling, scuffed old paint, etc. for a good smooth topcoat. I've been told primers promote adhesion to the substrate, sealer seals it up to prevent any bleed-through or staining because of different substrate.

PPG's K36 primer can be used as a sealer simply by using the SCX8 hardener instead of K201.

Primer is for filling and leveling, the least amount you use the better the paint job will be. If there is nothing to fill( scratches and pitts etc. )you don`t need it. just use primer sealer. Using a top line sealer is the biggest secret to a good lasting paint job.

Good Luck
