Ken Pridmore Posted June 28, 2018 Report Share Posted June 28, 2018 Why use Self Etch Primer if your Rust Seal or Top Coat can be painted over with a final top coat paint brand and color of my choosing ? I'm restoring a large old vehicle (1941) that was originally primed with a zinc dichromate primer. For the most part there is little rust anywhere and will scuff these areas up and prime. For the areas there is rust, I will repair, use KBS Clean and KBS Rust Blast followed with a primer. It will be approximately a year before applying a final top coat of paint brand and color of my choosing. I need a base coat that seals the bare metal until painting. So, back to my question, Why use Self Etch Primer if your Rust Seal or Top Coat can be painted over with a final top coat paint brand and color of my choosing ? Will any of them work as a base coat ?
