Grey primer

Unread post by Thatch » Mon Jul 07, 2014 12:54 pm


I see a lot of pics on the Vans site where builders use a grey coloured primer.

I have been using rattle cans with a green coloured primer.

Busy with the fuse on a RV12 and wonder if it makes a difference when one comes to put on a top coat. Would a grey top coat cover just as easily over a green primer as a grey primer?

Can we even get a suitable grey primer in SA without having to import?

So far I am just priming mating parts but will prime the whole interior of the fuse when the time comes.
