Powder Coat as Primer?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone..! smile.gif

I will be painting my case. It is powder coated at the moment and I was wondering if I had to take all the powder coat off.. So, I was wondering if I could use the powder coat as a primer.

Thanks.

You can paint over it no problem, just prep it as if it was paint, and if you sand through it, you'll need to prime where you went through.
