Thanks for the input! Actually, the primer I am using is Martin Senour 15210 etch. I'm sure you guys know its actually a rebadged SW product. I wanted to ask, because I remember reading a thread here about NOT applying body filler over etch. Thats why I asked if its looked at as filler or primer.
As for why I wanted to use it, well I just want my panels as straight as possible. I no pro, and I just want the most bang for my buck when it comes to getting panels as good as I can possibly get them. I also thought that it might be a little more cost effective to use poly primer to block sand than to use multiple applications of urethane primer.I still will use a urethane in the end, I just didnt want to use as much of it (expense).
After looking at the PDS for the slick sand, you are right, sevt_chevelle. It doesnt say that etch is an "approved substrate", so forget that, I guess. I am intrigued by the link you posted, as it looks to be the same stuff badbob is using and seems to like.
Since Evercoat doesnt make paint, does the *use the same manufacturer* rule still apply? I'm just using them as an example, there might be other similar products where I would ask the same thing. Actually, if the rule DOESNT apply, could I ultimately switch to a Dupont or other urethane primer with little difficulty?
