Is the adhesion coat the first coat before the primer, or is it actually a primer then followed by the color coat? I have a couple cans of "sandable" grey primer that i can layer on good after I spend a good amount of time sanding the plastic tube as smooth as I can get it. Im so anal I actually completely sanded the previous color coat and primer down to the plastic on these used stillens I have, must of taken me about 3 hours total but I know i wouldnt feel right if I didnt do it, wanted it the best I could get it. Too bad it came out the wrong color and i have to do them over, Lol.

Re: What I just did, painted upper sway bar.

I use the adhesion promoter after sanding and before the primer

Im just going to have a quart of it mixed up from a local auto paint store and try using the spray gun I have to use with my compressor. Its not that expensive buying it that way. I feel im confident I can have it come out good now after my sway bar came out good just using spray paint, nice n smooth with no pits or orange peel.

Yea but if its not one of the first few posts it gets lost forever for no one to ever find again. Lol.

I cant believe my simple post on painting my upper sway bar is on 2 pages now.

And why wait till spring, perfect time to paint, its getting cold out, perfect to do things inside, I dont have a garage but my basement is setup like a nice workshop. Wish i could drive my car down there somehow. ha.
