I do alot of boat work from transom jobs to small repairs, I picked this up in a pinch, never used it before. It says on the can that it sands easily but it doesant. It clogs sand paper right away, it's gummy when dry. Can says sandable in 18 hours, I'm over three days, it was still sticky at 18 hours, and it's been very warm out. Now I'm going to have to buy a high build primer to bury this stuff.

      This is a great product, but the best part was calling the Cape coral store and the young man put aside the product I needed, I walked in and I had my product... Thank-you:)

          Using this primer on a restoration project. Once you get the hang of laying it out it performs well. Helps produce mirror like finishes once top coated. Recommend 2/3 coats. 220 grit paper between coats.

                      This primer is typical of the primers I have used. It is thin (not very viscous), but doesn't spread real well. It has a nice sheen and is bright. It actually is great at hiding stains and covering a "multitude of sins". Works well with the brightside poly paint.
