greetings

Post by roky on December 11th 2007, 7:33 pm

i'm resoring an old vw, problem is, i'm in the middle of the desert with only solar for electric --- so no way to run my air compressor,and after reading about this approach, i think i can do at least as good a job as my last lacquer job -- thing is, i've got a bit of body work on the vw, and old, crazed lacquer paint -- so i would like to also roll on a high-build primer surfacer -- anybody hear of anyone doing that? -- i know how easy it is to spray primer, but again, no compressor on 12v solar -- i'm a bit concerned that since it will probably be 2 part urethane, it might set up too fast - i've rollled a boat before, and they do make primers that don't set up too fast for marine

and thanks much for the site

Welcome to the site. I had a 67 Baja Beetle at the beginning of the year. They are a blast. I thought I seen a primer made by rustoleum when I bought my paint. I don't see any problem with rolling the primer on other than spending a little extra time. Not sure how many coats of the primer it would take to cover. Maybe one or 2 coats if you didnt thin it? Hopefully one of the current members can chime in and elaborate a little more about the primer. If not, the site is growing with more and more knowledge everyday. I'm hoping soon that we can create a huge database for questions and answers regarding everything rolled on.

matt - i've used rustoleum primer before, but for this project, which involves quite a bit of bodywork, i want to use a 2-part high build primer, both for corrosion prevention, and to level the surface before painting -- i know transtar makes a roll on primer, but its not hi-build -- i figure a rolled on primer shouldn't be too hard to sand level, since it builds quickly and sands easily, compared to the finish coat -- maybe i will have to be the test case?
