Wrong Primer Paint?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Well I just bought 3 cans of "primers" from the hardware store...unfortunately when I got back home I noticed it was a Paint & Primer in one...I do not know why on earth I missed that...So I'm wondering if I can still use it as a primer for my case? Btw the brand is X-O Rust in case you're wondering.

if your planing on spraying a case and you have sanded it or blasted it i would use an etcher rather than a primer. it will give you the best results because not only does an etcher coat the surface for the paint it also eats into the metal and forms a stronger finish

Key the old paint with some 3m scotch brite and spray it with what you've got, it'll be fine.

Is that paint / primer in an aerosol can or is it brush / roll on? I've never heard of that. Interested to see results!

I decided to go back and replace them with the primers only just to be safe...same brand.

I did look for the self-etching ones, but they're out of stock So I guess I'm sticking with this.
