kb here trying to find a lacquer gray fill primer like we use to use on repairing cars back in the old times i know that most states have bannned the old nitro lacquer supplies but there has to be some one who still makes this product. does any body know where. i wish i had all i threw away at the time. they say you can still buy it because some of these guys that restore car want the original lacquer finish why i want it it fills any voids with just about one coat and you can shoot createx over it and it sands easy kb

There is a brand name "Autobody Masters" sold by many parts suppliers.
I don't believe it is nitro, Acrylic. I think most of the paint jobbers still sell lacquer primer. Dupont sells lacquer primer under the Nason brand.

Don't know why u are looking for that but if you go to auto paint shops there's lots of substitutes available which I think are much better product with the advancement in polymer science. A product l like is urethrane primer and comes in white too. Fills voids and cures to a pretty hard surface, much harder then nitro stuff. Very good adhesion too.

the absolute best primer is by basf epoxy primer. i personally use lacquer primer due to cost efficiency. on plastics and metal basf epoxy primer is incredible. its a 2 part but cooked on chrome its indestructable

Try Polyester filler/primers. They contain high solids that fill sanding scratches & surface pinholes. They can be sanded, and polished to a semi-gloss. When preparing a master plug for mold making. They can take the place of final gel coats. Unlike epoxies & Urethanes; this material cures to a hard working surface in a matter of minutes. This and other lure design solutions can be found at: The Lure Makers Magazine. Reference: About Gel Coats in the READ ME Section. Or; visit http://fiberglast.com for primer/surfacers and a myriad other lure making materials.

To correct over-cuts when carving balsa & other wood lure making materials; use automotive spot putty. Spot putty can also be applied to create micro-detail on the lure surface. Spot puty can be found in all auto paint supply stores, and most auto parts stores. This and other lure making solutions can be found among the 300+ pages of The Lure Makers Magazine.

Lapala, I am interested in knowing more about the urethane primer. If you could be so kind to impart a little more info regarding the primer you are using. I have been hesitant to use any of the 2-part primers because of waste and clean-up associated with them. Since you mention dipping, is this accomplished without reduction or thinning? Do you know if what you are using is available in the U.S. or if there is a similar product?
