Default Self Etching Primer, I Need Help Finding Some In Spray Cans!

Does anyone know of a place where I can buy self etching primer in a spray can at a reasonable price? Also, what is a reasonable price for it? Or, does anyopne here sell it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I've used Dupli-color before (Dupli-color ).

It should be available locally. They have a dealer locator on their web site. Hope this helps.

Go to a local auto paint store, almost all product lines have it.

I use Standox and Sherwin-Williams 981 is a true acid etching primer

You can also use a Prevail sprayer. It works good, but the primer has to be cut to spray it.

I don't think you will find self etching in a spray can, the acid would destroy the can

I bought a can at a local automotive paint supply store. Seems it was around $10.00 a can.

You can find chromate primer in a can, but not self etching. As Cord says the Preval sprayer is an idea.

Fred,

THANKS for the offer! I am painting my 2 gearcases so I think it would be to much. But I sure do appreciate it! That is awefully nice of you. Know where I can get spray can stuff? I know it is not as quality as what would be done in a shop like yours, but....

Thanks again Fred.
