Primer ??

Will applying a coat of black primer help me achieve a more uniform paint job? My jeep/hunting buggy has some scratches and dents that I have fixed with Bondo.

I was thinking that the black primer will get the entire jeep the same color then I can paint it.

any thought??

Its always a good idea to primer all one color before spraying the color coat,if not,,yes,,it can easily cause different shades here and there.

That always depends on the color you are spraying..some colors will even come with a tech sheet that says the best option for a certain color primer for easier/better color coverage.

For example,I used a VW Metallic Reggata Blue for a project and it said to specificaly use a black primer to acheive the best shade and coverage it was intended to be.

But as far as camo colors,flat/semi colors..etc or just an enamel or such..grey is usualy the most used since it's the most common available.....

Black or grey will work on just about anything,unless your looking for a specific exact match of a color your shooting for...

But

That's a good point, DuPonts brand use ratings for the individual colors. For the Chromasystem they use values of 1-7 from white to dark gray that correspond to the sealer coat to use under the color like Ironworker said.

Now if you're new to painting and aren't familiar with this or you're using just rattle cans for a cheap paint job, then any primer would color would work. I don't think I saw anything that said what color you we going with. Now that would have a lot to determine what you should use.

Sent from my phone because I should be doing something else right now

You'll be fine with the black if thats what you already have..the army OD green is a high solids color..great color coverage

That is what I need coverage to cover the screw ups from 34 years of running it in Florida swamps.
