Hi im repainting my 1996 chevy s-10 blazer again. Im gonna paint it Kandy cobalt blue this time around. I'v got a question though, its getting cold out side. Im getting the car reprimed. I am using just the cheap napa primer. I was woundering if the car aint gonna be painted for another few months (I think its getting to cold for the paint to actually dry) . SOuld I use some epoxy primer or a primer sealer to help protect the primer? Im also woundering if there are any products out there that seal the primer and bodywork to help prevent chipping or anything like that? DOes napa have some good epoxy primers/sealers? Or should I got with House of Kolor or PPG? Thanks, Chris

Need to just rent or buy a salamander or heater of somekind and paint it. You should be able to make sealer using your primer that you allready have. You just have to reduce it. The only time you need to use sealer is when you have new parts, mostly plastic and some metals, that dont need primered..so you seal it so the paint will stick better. Your gonna have to block your truck before you paint it anyways..so its kind pointless to put more on it or to protect it.

Now that's some good advice :thumbsup:
Sanding it like that will also get rid of anything that might have been absorbed by the primer, and because it's thick you still have plenty of primer as foundation.
