Primer for painted and bare surfaces

My question is about the U-Pol Raptor Liner. I am prepping my jeep tub to spray and I have areas of sanded paint and bare metal. Should I put a primer down or just go ahead and spray it? If I need a primer, what type?


If I have to drill out another bolt, I'm just going to start welding parts on.

I would call the company, but I usually use epoxy primer over bare metal sometimes an acid etch primer. In your case I would probably use the epoxy.

Def go with epoxy. Etch primer will not stick correctly to the surrounding painted areas. Epoxy will go over all with no problem.
