Would like to know what is the best fiberglass primer for reproductions?
I use a good spray can primer, but make sure blank is release agent free
Go to your local auto store as they carry great clear primers for plastics and fiberglass.
Fish taxidermy involves so much auto paint supplies I have a account at the local shop
I agree. Once I tried the automotive gloss I was hooked.
I did that for years until I tried a two part epoxy type of gloss
WAY cheaper, and I apply it with a cheap brush, hit it with hot air.
Downside is once dry it’s not coming off.
What exactly do you use?
It is from US composites in west palm beach fl
Called table top epoxy
Check out website
I little goes a long way, when you hit it with hot air it really thins out,
Needs to be rotated a couple times during drying,
I do this twice in a hour then tip it up with show side up.
Must be applied in temps 70 and above
Very similar to envirotex
They have lots Of goodies
The best primer I have found is Zinser brand 1,2,3. Kilz also works but the spray tends to get powdery for the last half of the rattle can. I usually let the stuff dry overnight.
