I've been doing body work/painting cars for a few years now, and I've always just put it on straight metal. Now and then when I get cars with new panels in factory e-coat (factory black primer), I'll scuff them with a red pad quick before I seam seal them.

i agree, if the metal is clean and freshly sandblasted i would put it on bare metal, but it never hurts to apply a primer first let it dry then scuff it up a bit with out rubbing through the primer.

If its DTM (direct to metal) seam sealer there is no problem, but its best to apply an etch primer first, and then the seam sealer.

Non, DTM seam sealer will stick to the metal initially, but over time it can separate.

What kind are you using? 1k urethane or a 2k? and what are you sealing?
