Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by myyellow Great on my Firebird!
I'm restoring an old Firebird and this primer has been my go-to. It fills in small imperfections very well and is very easy to apply without drips. It dries very quickly and can be sanded in under an hour after application.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kefi Does what it says it will do, adhere to metal.
I needed to paint raw aluminum and other so called metal spray paints were not working, so far this seams to do the trick!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PK Very good coverage, quick dry and easy to use.
The new line of rust-oleum is a big improvement over previous products.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JohnT Convenient primer
A good, high build primer in a convenient spray can. A better value would be to purchase a quart and mix with solvent and spray. But a quart is not easy to find.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Scantback Don't waste your money
This spray didn't last 2 seconds before it clogged and that was it. I did exactly what the directions said and this was a horrific waste of money. I then tried cleaning the nozzle to no avail. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Monday317 Good stuff!
I am restoring an old aluminum tripod that came with a beat-up black wrinkle finish. Stripped that off with Rust-Oleum Aircraft Stripper (does a great job, but plutonium is probably safer to handle...), washed with mineral spirits, then dish soap and water. Used a red Scotch pad to get to shiny, scoured, metal (helps paint adhesion on bare aluminum if the surface has a bit of texture to it), quick wipe with mineral spirits, and went to work.
Went on just fine, no surprises. It's gray with a noticeable greenish cast --very comforting to a guy used to zinc chromate on aluminum. Let it dry several days, and it needed just a few passes with some wet 400 grit to get a silky finish for the overcoat--the Forged Hammered Pewter that is ghastly when used on narrow, round tubes or vertical pieces... Reviewed that as well; paint's good, instructions not, so most have trouble with the stuff. Bot this primer worked just fine, recommended for bare aluminum. Be sure to allow a good, long dry before fiddling with the work--72 hours at least to be safe.
