Rob, I have a quick question about the primer - did you use mineral spirits to reduce it, or just roll it right out of the can? Also, how much did you end up using?

Thanks!

reduce it with some lacquer thinner. Your weather will come in to play on how much to add. Heat and humidity will make paint/primmer do funny things.

Thanks Bob - I've been reading up a lot in your thread, too. I am going to try to tackle my 88 F150 with Topside white, and I got a fender and a rock guard panel to begin practicing on. I'm getting pretty excited, I just haven't painted anything really since I used to build plastic car models back when I was a teenager in the mid to late 90's.....

Any insight on where to start as far as ratio goes for primer and lacquer thinner?

Thanks!

I would start with 75% primmer/25% thinner. Thats a good stating point. If you see the primmer dragging, clumping up then thin is some more and you should be good to go. The thing with primmer is its easy to sand and fix if you mess it up.
The key to this is using good rollers and taking your time.

Sorry to keep asking questions - this is what they have at the local AutoZone for primer



Is this OK to use?  And should I use Rustoleum laquer thinner or the Rustoleum specialty reducer with it?

THANKS!
