    Recommend an epoxy primer

    We use PPG DP epoxy 90 ,50 ,40 with their 402 activator. We use it as a base over metal then polyester prime over top for body work, Also we use the same DP as a sealer but with a shot of reducer before base coat. I don't sand it but will scuff with a scotch brite if needed.
