"DO NOT ROLL ON THICK! ! !"

The can should specifically state, "DO NOT APPLY IN THICK COATS!". It will not dry hard. I'm a professional and grabbed this for a quick fix on the road. I blew 36 hrs waiting for this to dry at 90 degrees and low humidity. Gummy. Had to use solvent to remove. I'd recommend thinning with brushing/spraying solvent. Not happy.

        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.
