Best Uses

    Comments about 6455 Metal Primer Quart:

    I used this to spot prime bare aluminum on a mast prior to painting. It is very difficult to apply an even coat by hand. Best way I found was to use a small foam brush or mini foam roller. CANNOT go over this paint twice! Work quick and move on. Sticks well and forms a good base for future coats of paint.
