Afternoon gents,

I need see advice but to start. I know epoxy primer is what I need to use and it needs to go onto bare metal and it's the best primer out there. Now that's out of the way here is my situation.

I am removing paint and rust in areas to expose all the rusted areas I need to replace. However I just got orders to deploy in 1 week. Soooo that means I won't be able to finish the panel work.

That being said, I have exposed metal. I don't want to come back to a bunch of surface rust. What should I do?

Should I use rattle can etch primer then just remove it again before epoxy primer?

Should I use ospho or something similar then wash it off before epoxy primer.

Or is there a better route to take.

Just epoxy primering is not a option right now.

Thanks in advance

Just use the etch primer then remove it when it's time to epoxy. Keep it indoors if at all possible, at least out of the rain. Don't cover it (unless it has to be left outside.)


If any rust makes it through the spray can primer, you'll see it and remove it when you strip it off for the epoxy later.
