I have an Archie Phillips blank that was silver when I got it. This is my first Repro to ever do. The silver made it a little tough for me to see my paint going on but I had a decent paint job going.....until I spilled paint down the side! Well as I rinsed with lacquer thinner and repainted small areas problems started snowballing! Well, since I have a Repro crappie to repainted for a friend later I thought I would take the opportunity to strip and repainted this replica for the experience of doing it. I am sure that the silver will come off also as it already has in places leaving a pale pink. My question is should I prime with some sort of primer and what color?
