  • Primer

    My trunk started peeling and now my trunk is just grey. My question is, is this gray like a primer or something? since my car is white i was just gonna primer the trunk with white primer. Do i need to sand down the trunk first? and will primer withstand rain and weather and all that? Thanks

    i suggest that u do sand it down before u paint it. primer wont stand the rain & harsh weather that well. it will hold it's ground for a while, but it'll just start fading and/or staining (stains in the primer)

      is there anyway to prevent it from staining? clear coating or something along the lines of that?

        Primer absorbs moisture. So if you primer it, and can't afford to get it painted or whatever, just buy some white spray bombs and do it yourself. That will certainly help things.

                Would i have to prime it first, and then spray paint over it and then a gloss finish on top of that leaving me with three layers of 3 different things?

                  Well the clearcoat is optional. If it's just a temporary fix, you really don't need the clearcoat. You'll still need primer though or the paint won't stick.

                    Well this has to last as long as possible.........will the clearcoat stand up to weathering and stuff?? and can you guys recomend any good spraypaints, primers or clear coats? i assume its all the spray stuff right? sorry i've never done this before...

                      as long as u dont go super cheap.. like some of those 98 cent for a can of black spraypaint might be good.. but i'd be scepticle.. i might end up doing that.. but for clear coat.. i think u should go with good names.. if the undercoats are okay jobs.. then the top coat is a good brand job.. then i think it should hold pretty well..

                        Keep in mind that mixing brands may cause a chemical reaction and make the paint bubble; that's why "paint systems" exist. All the chemicals used in the system are compatible with each other.
