Default Primer ?

I plan on getting a bed for my truck in a couple of weeks. it's a different color so I plan to sand it and prime it. What is a good primer to use that won't hold moisture?

I've used Spray can Rustoleum on my wheels and the fenders on the Bronco, it's held up fairly well, they need another coat to really seal it.

The true answer is none. Primer is like a sponge, it soaks up paint and well water. If you let bare primer sit around it will suck up any moisture and if you don't paint just after primer, it will have to be redone.

Thanks. I guess my truck will be multi color until it's ready to paint.

That's the best way to do it.

While most of the time what Russo said is correct, a product like this is an epoxy primer.
It will seal 100%, in fact a good sealer is what protects the metal.
Paint does nothing to protect metal, and clear protects the paint.

You need a high quality sealer. Do NOT use any type of rattle can primer, it is garbage...

Anything single component (rattle can) isn't worth doing. You have to have a primer you mix with a hardener then shoot to be of any effect at all. I'll be on here more because russo shamed me into it. I'll try to help. I've been a bodyman for 19 years and i'm gonna do my best to give back for the mechanical advice i've gotten.Oh and epoxy primer isn't a filler.It's kind of a final sealer you don't sand imperfections out of. it's for after the body work.Except no one uses it anymore. Kind of a dead horse.
