An epoxy primer can be mixed as a sealer. It is designed to seal the
surface, (it will tell you if you intend to paint don't let it harden for
more than x hours or you'll have to sand it down and do it again). This is
for your gun not a rattle can. I use DP epoxy primer system (PPG) but Dupont
and Centari are good brands as well. It can be mixed as primer, primer
surfacer and primer sealer all out of the same can.

Subject: [oletrucks] metal preservation
What is the best way to preserve my rusty ol'truck before I
working on it?
I'd like to be able to blast/hammer/sand/prime a fender at a
time, but I'm
afraid that I would actually accelerate the decay if I don't
paint. Would it be sufficient to use an aerosol can of
primer to cover any
exposed metal (realizing that I would completely re-sand
and re-prime when
I went to paint it for real.)
Primer really isn't intended for exposure to
elements...that's why we have
I know aerosol cans are expensive, but so is the amount of
paint I'd waste
cleaning the gun after only painting one fender.
Any other suggestions? What has everyone else done?
