hey yall, quick question. im planning on taking my duster down to bare metal, but i dont have anywhere to do the priming via spraygun. i was wondering, since ill be doing all the bodywork except for the final final blocking, priming, and painting, if i could get away with the spray can primer that they sell in the parts stores? will it hold up?
what will it do underneath the final primer and paint?
also, what color primer should i use?
thanks fer the help, yall.

see, the problem is, i have the gun and everything, just nowhere to spray. i dont have an air compressor that mobile, and the garage im working in i CANNOT get overspray in. so i have to prime outside.
thats the reasoning behind this post.

ypou made a good point, paintman. it does cost more to do it twice than do it right once.

can i prime it outdoors with an etching primer, or is this a no-no?
if i do have to do it outside, any suggestions for how to keep the primer off everthing else?
thanks much, yall.
oh, i do have a spray gun. dont know what kind it is, a body-guy friend of mine loaned/tgave it to me to use for this purpose.
thanks
mike
