This is a video response about primers. There are so many different primers, how do you know which one to use for your car? I’ll do my best to explain it in this video.
- Self Etch Primer (acid) or
- Epoxy Primer
Filling Scratches, Body Work, etc.
- Primer Surfacer aka Primer Filler or Fill Primer must be sanded
Direct To Metal Primer (corrosion protection + filling) must be sanded
- Primer Sealer (not required, but helps hide and cover color variations)
There are other primers and systems out there, such as tinted primers, UV primers, but this may become confusing if you are not familiar with them, so we’ll keep it to the basics. However, I do recommend all 2k (two-part) primers, except for the etch primer which is a 1k primer. 2k simply means the primer mixes with a catalyst making it a two-part.
