Hi,Can anybody tell which paint I should use on bare steel, i have only ever used two pack primer before but have heard a lot about epoxy primers (DP90?). Should i use etching primer then primer surfacer or epoxy then primer surfacer?. And anyone know where i can get it from as my local paint supply guy has never heard of it. I Normally paint all my cars and have never had any problems just wondered if its better for longevity and what benefits it has. Any advice would be appreciated.

just acid, epoxy it bob we can get it if needed pal
Colin ,Have used that Lechler etching primer (jeez that stuff makes your chest bad!!) then two pack primer, Is the epoxy better at holding back any corrosion due to having a high zinc content? Just want to know what folk think as a lot of the yanks seem to use DP90 epoxy

Now comments like that scare me, don't you wear a mask?????

As Bry said, epoxy & primer filler is the best way.
Yeh i wear a mask not a air fed one but not some cheap thing either (get new filters every time) ,just seems to effect me kinda makes my chest tight for a couple of days.don't have a problem with anything else just that lechlar stuff, but i take on board what your saying. I take it the epoxy takes the place of the etching primer and you use body filler on top of that?
