RE: What Primer for Fiberglass??
The primer is great. But, the paint is a different animal. Lot of bad press about it. But, I've had good luck with it. The secret is, you absolutely must follow Nelson's directions. You also need to shoot a lot of practice patterns on a test piece to get the spray gun adjusted correctly. I use a sheet of builders' foam since the paint is water based. It won't attack the foam. Once you get the gun adjusted, write down the settings BEFORE you disassemble it for cleaning or you'll never find the settings again. Also be aware, the lighter the color, the flatter the gloss. I find that white has little or no gloss, but red or black dry to a nice medium gloss. If you clear coat for gloss, don't over do it. One light coat is usually best. Too much and you'll ruin a nice paint job. Trust me, I know. I can tell you also that the paint will NOT stick to any primer except Nelson's. Don't be tempted to use anything else, including Rustoleum. His directions say Rustoleum will work. I've tried it twice with very bad results! A final note. If you let the paint dry for about 24 hours, it sands beautifully. In fact, after a day or so, the paint surface takes on a plastic quality.
