View Full Version : Primer over old paint


05-07-2006, 08:27 PM
Can I put new primer over old paint or do I have to scuff down to metal? I am using 2 part urethane primer/surfacer. Also I have part of my truck with the same primer on it that was applied about 2 years ago. The truck has been indoors since. Should I put another coat of primer over this old stuff before I paint? Thanks

What kind of primer is on it now and what kind of primer are you planning on using?

The two year old primer is the same as I am putting on now..Pro Form urethane 2 part Primer/Surfacer. I dont know what is under the original paint o the truck, but it would have been lacquer paint. Its on there really well and I wondered if I have to take it all off, or if I can put the Pro Form over it.
