Need to let it go Rick talking about being sarcastic. I use white primer all the time bought at any auto store. Or even Wally World. post your addy but then again all you are doing is sniping.


Hope he didn't paint my white Camaro

Chad,
Go to your nearest paint supplier or W-Mart and buy a spray can of Kilz. This works great.

Painting a Fiberglass Storage Building

This response submitted by Karen S on 10/07/2002. ( ) 205.188.208.71

Hi Guys,

Need your input. We bought a fiberglass storage bin (one that "UPS" uses in the belly of a plane to put parcels in for transport)and it needs painting. Right now it's white. What type of primer (if needed) and paint can I use so that it will stick and not peel. Where can I buy it and roughly how far will it spread. The building is about 10 foot long x 8 foot wide x 7 foot tall Weighs around 630 lbs. We were going to paint it green so it would blend in with the evergreen shrubs that's behind it. Thanks. Karen
