    If I were spraying an entire car I would just buy it by the gallon at my local paint shop. i just need a quart or less and had a heck of a time trying to find a normal epoxy primer at 3 or 4 shops I asked about it.

    Has anyone used UPOL Raptor, eastwood, speedkote or summit?

  4. UPOL Raptor is a bed liner not an epoxy.

  6. I use Summit and Kirker which I believe to be the same product. Zero complaints.

    I am surprised you can’t purchase epoxy primer in quarts. The shop I buy my supply’s from sells it that way.

    I used Eastwoods on one project. Wasn't that impressed with it. It was always sticky/gummy and a bitch to sand. Even called them and went over the process and I was doing everything right. Several months later it was "normal" and more what I expected. Talked to a few others on a message board that were having the exact same results as I was. Wouldn't buy it again.

    I use kirker brand, it has no induction time. One less thing an amateur like me can screw up.

    The NAPA I deliver for carries epoxy primer in quarts. I just did a new welding truck bed for my son in black epoxy. Used TranStar. Use a good respirator.

    i did a 56 chrysler a couple years ago with eastwoods flat black two part epoxy no matter how many coats you could see the body filler underneath. alway's have used ppg's epoxy but it's getting expensive next car i'll use ppg . no such thing as cheap and good when it applies to paint. oh yea i would consider eastwoods paint JUNK

    PPG shopline has quarts
    Also PPG has an industrial epoxy that works great. It’s the old DP, mixes 1:1 like it used too
    Runs me about $125 for a 2 gallon kit

    Look up TAMCO
    I like everything I have used from them
