    So I finally finished off my Valspar LICP20 Epoxy Primer.
    Of course, only about a pint shy of what I needed to finish the project. :S
    I was finally getting the feel for the stuff.

    Now I’m debating on what to go with.

    You guys got anything you like in your systems?

    I’m debating on giving Summit Racings new UP230 Epoxy primer a try, at 90 bucks for a 2 gallon kit, it isn’t bad priced.
    Also considering Eastwoods new ZP primer. Equally priced with Summits.
    Or maybe just going back to Kirkers Epoxy primer at 80 bucks a kit…

    But of course I can’t get any of it locally.
    So if you guys have anything good in your system you’d suggest I try I’m all ears.

    Also what Urethane Surfacer/Sealer you guys like?

    Which are you using, How much does a kit cost you?

    Got anything good in that Martin Manure Bondo?

    I like the SPI epoxy, especially since it comes in white, gray and black.
    I buy the white and black and mix to get the shade I want depending
    on what color I’m covering with.
    It’s also a “flexible” epoxy so I like it for plastic parts and bumpers.

    I also like Kirker epoxy, it’s cheaper and only comes in black and gray,
    but it’s a real easy to use epoxy, not as flexible though.
    But I have been able to pile it on more without any issues,
    the SPI is sensitive if you go more than a couple of coats,
    I get pin holes if I rush it, never have with the Kirker.
    they both are easy to sand after a day or two.

    I’ve used lots of Kirker Epoxy. But it’s too brittle to be used on plastics.
    SPI epoxy is what i’m using also. Haven’t had pin hole issues. Good stuff!

    I have been using DP800 – DIMENSION Epoxy Primer on my current project and it lays down nice.

    Pretty sure thats the same as Martin Senour CP 400. Mixes like 8:4:1 ?

    I haven’t used any in years. Always found it was kinda gummy even after a few days of dry time, but yeah, it does lay down nice.

    I’ve used alot of Kirker epoxy in the past but am trying to get away from Kirker anything.

    I still like MS 15210 Etching primer. :blush:

    Usually use MS 15222 for 2K.

    ppg dp epoxy (white, gray, & black) and ppg k36 high build … good primers but no longer have a supplier for them :huh:

    June 18, 2009 at 6:21 pm #14735

    Dont know how you could use K36, it shrinks like crazy.. Even PPG will tell you that!

    June 19, 2009 at 1:53 am #14736

    I used K36 for a few years and found it pretty good. I thought it was pretty comparable to some of the basf primers I’ve used.

    so rat whats ur opinion on that 440 now????wicked good aint it 😛 😛 😛 😛

    June 19, 2009 at 9:02 pm #14738

    They wont even sell you K36 around here anymore… They had way to many problems with shrinkage.
