Greg Pugh Posted October 10, 2016 Share Posted October 10, 2016 I'm currently working on Moebius' 1965 Plymouth Satellite. Everything was going well and then... Friday evening I washed the body in warm soapy water, rinsed it, wet sanded it, rinsed it again, and left it to dry overnight. Saturday morning I shot it in primer and...it crazed. And check out this weirdness. Never seen this before, nor was this line here prior to painting... It's kinda got me scratching my head. I've used the same primer (Duplicolor 1699 Primer/Sealer) for the last 15+ years and have NEVER had a problem! In fact, I even have used it on this same kit on everything that's been painted up until now with no problems! So I broke out the body on the kit that I've been raiding parts from. I masked off half of the deck lid and shot it with the same can of primer, same result. I then masked off the other side of the deck lid and grabbed a brand new can of the same primer, same result. I then masked off half of the roof, and shot it with the color I'm going with (Duplicolor spray can) and it did not seem to have the same effect, not quite as bad anyways. I saw a post on Facebook where somebody had just finished building one of the Moebius Ford pickups and I asked him if he had any problems with primer crazing and he said that he did. So it's seeming to me like there's something up with the plastic in the bodies...? I guess I don't quite understand why everything else I've painted in this same kit didn't seem to have any reaction but the body did. And is this an issue with all of Moebius' kits? It's funny because I haven't heard anything about anybody having any issues until now and this is my first Moebius kit. Any ideas? I've stripped the primer off the body but of course now I have a lot of clean-up to do. I'm going to try a Tamiya primer on it next. Of course I'll try it on the test body first. I just hope that the Duplicolor Acrylic Lacquer will get along with the Tamiya primer. I've been told it will. If anybody has any ideas, I'm all ears!
