Re: Pcking a high build primer

I've used 2 gallons of Kirker Perfect Prime and I was happy with it.
builds well, sands well.
you reduce it a bit and it lays out nice as a sealer coat

I think was about $90-100 per gallon with the activator

Re: Pcking a high build primer

You can’t beat slick sand or feather fill sands good and O shrinkage witch means no die backs

Re: Pcking a high build primer

I keep hearing about the shrinkage and die back. I'm a newb to painting...just finished the truck (mostly).

how long does it take for shrink to occur? what is the end look if it happens?
curious, I used the Kirker, 2 -3 coats and blocked it...some areas I did a final coat with reducer to make a slicker looking sealer.
I waited 2 days at least, till base coat went over it. Some panels waited months before base went on. I guess I'm wondering when does the flaws show up, if they are gonna happen.

thanks

Re: Pcking a high build primer

That really depends on what is underneath as far as welding and filler if There was no bodywork and the panel was straight And you got all sanding scratches out of it you really shouldn’t see any diy back. But if there was body filler used and you left some 80 grit scratches they’ll Probably show back through in time or you used a lot of high build to get it straight you could see some shrinkage in time with slicks sand there is zero shrinkage so no diy backs

Re: Pcking a high build primer

Ok thanks.....so it's scratches that mainly come back into view...after it dries

I mostly hit all my filler with 320 as last step before the high build went on.
hopefully all my 40 and 80 grit scratches were removed...but time will tell

Re: Pcking a high build primer

"primer" bare metal SPI epoxy every time @K primer surfacer spi also has a couple i like their regular 2k. if you have really deep scratches and a lot of filler work to smooth out slick sand. always use epoxy on any bare metal for best adhesion and corrosion resistance.
