Primer for color molded bodys

11 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Wondering if anyone may have a magic trick to cure the red/yellow bleed through on color molded bodys and parts?

Like especially around panel lines, brutal.

I was contemplating using the tamiya brush on primer on the panel lines, wet sanding, then applying tamiya white primer in the spray can?

I would suggest using a good primer/sealer on the bodies before repainting them. I've had good luck with Duplicolor primer/sealer.

Ok, thanks.

I have not really painted plastic with anything other than Tamiya primer first, the primer sealer can go right on or should i prep the body with something first?

Paint it flat black first, then go from there with primer/paint.

I just finished a car molded in a green plastic. I sprayed the body silver, then primer, then color coats and clear. Works good.

Silver is the trick I used on a Jo-Han Ambulance molded in red to get

White on the Roof and Not Pink!!

you can always seal the body with future floor polish before you prime it.

A coat of spray can "self etching" primer (in that muddy green color) followed by regular primer seems to work best for me.

If you know how to use an airbrush I would use an

automotive primer. I use all DuPont paints I have never had a problem

with it.
