Bob, thanks for being level headed on this and hearing me out. Now, is you read what I said again, I am mearly saying that there "could" be some things that could help. If your primer appears "harder" a month after you shot it than a few days or a week later, there IS something wrong. If there is some microscopic shinkage, ok, but "harder", it sounds like there is some serious lack of cureing. That is just not normal, period.

Go back and read the possible causes of shrinkage in my last post. Honestly ask yourself, "could I be pushing things?".

I have done many full on show cars, there is no way I am going to cut and buff a car six months down the road. It better be as best as it will ever be when I get it assembled. Because after I put together a chrome covered, detailed fender beading, zillion piece Model A coupe, there is NO WAY IN HELL I am going to buff it anymore. It gets Mirror Glazed for the rest of it's life, but not buffed. Now, of course when doing a street rod or custom you aren't priming and painting in the same day anyway, even if you wanted to. The project is just too big to apply too much stuff too fast. One thing is to keep the film build to a mininum, don't ask the primer to do too much filling.

Clark, I think it Jim right? Jim, I don't know what to say. I thought the subject in this thread was how long to wait before painting, right? That is all WE are discussing. I guess I failed in my communicating that I don't mean to say you are doing something wrong, I know how ridiculously sensitive this country has became, I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings. God knows we can't do anything anymore that could even be thought of in that light, it just makes me want to puke we are becoming so feminized.

I'll try not to comment to you in the future.
