Primer Before Paint???

Post by Keneken on June 29th 2011, 2:34 am

Any help to my question would be appreciated. Do I need primer on bare metal before I apply the Rustoleum paint? Or will it stick good with out it? Will be using a spray gun, don't know if that matters.

Rustoleum can be painted over bare metal,but the many paint job's on this site , most have primed bare metal, For my own peace of mind I would prime any bare metal, Hope this may answer your question.

I second that. Priming will make everything uniform plus if your metal has any hidden oil or grease in it , it's easier to fix fisheyes in primer then it is in paint.
