View Full Version : Mis-mixed 2k primer
06-19-2006, 01:43 PM
I had the body media-blasted, did the filler, primed with epoxy and then 2k urethane primer. I found a few shallow dents and repaired those then recoated with 2k primer again. After I recoated I "discovered" that instead of mixing the urethane primer 4:1, I had mixed it 3:1. It looks okay and went on okay, but should I be worried about what's going to happen later? I'm a newbie and sure appreciate the help of this forum.

The biggest disadvantage I see so far is that you're going to run out of hardener before you run out of primer for upcoming priming jobs. I've mixed 'em anywhere from 4:1 to 2:1 with no negative side effects short term or long term. Bottom line to your question - you should be fine. Sand it as usual and get on to the next phase of the operation.

It would just be a little thinner and probably go on smoother :)

Thanks for the replies. Just one of my screw-ups that I figured I'd ask the experts before I tried to paint over it and find out later that it had to come off. You folks are a real inspiration and source of confidence to those of us who probably should just pay experts to do the job.
