Wanna get some opinions and not meaning to start a debate. I am preparing to paint the entire body and I have several pieces bare and want to get them covered before they rust up, is it that much difference in quality between a good rattle can primer or the bulk sprayer type??? Like I mentioned I want to get the panels covered but I want a decent quality paint when its done....

You need to get the primer that works with the brand of paint you will be using. Good Luck

There is no such thing as decent quality AND rattle can. If you want good results, there is no way around using the right stuff, and sometimes the right stuff isnt real cheap. You could probly paint the Jeep for $400-$500 and still have good quality.

If it were mine I would spray, the bare stuff at least, with epoxy primer then a 2k (2k=primer + catylist) primer after the epoxy flashes.

If you are undecided, and the parts are kept in a garage, you could just wipe them with Ospho (or whatever phosphoric acid) until you were ready to primer many or all parts.
