Not much of a body guy but I have used a product called Duo-Prime. Have heard body guys refer to it as spray on stucco..

Spies Hecker makes a spray polyester primer that can fill up to 100 mils. If you lay a dime on your hood you can fill it. I used some on a badly checked hood I didn't want to strip, been excellent for 8 years. Guys were using it to fill hail dents.

What are you putting it over?

I use a product from evercoat called slicksand .. Price wise it is pretty cheap around $75 dollars a gallon and it works great .. It is a spray polyester also and it sands alittle hard compared to primer but I wouldn't use anything else .. After my blocking is done I will even wetsand this and seal and paint directly over it ..

X2. That is a good product also. I think evety manufacturer has their own version of spray poly. Hard to sand is an understatement. .

Utech is a good build primer. Sprays and sands nice. All I use anymore.
If you need a extra high build for anything then you are doing it wrong.

Thumbs up Re: High build primers?

I am just looking to see what the best kind is and not gonna brake the bank? I use to do a lot of body work back when my Dad had our own shop but since I have been driving truck and out of it for so long there are so many changes since we were doin it! The body on my car has been completely stripped down to bare metal with aircraft paint stripper and doing all body work as I go. Replaced driverside quarter and redone some old body work in a couple other areas. I was watching Trucks today on Spike and they were sprayn some stuff I have never herd of and could not even find on the net? I think it was called Black polly primer/filler by Clawson? I know I know that I will have to put down etching primer before I can use much of anything else. All the help so far has been great. I do hace a Glass hood that I will need to use some good primer on to get a good block job done has bunch of cracks in the gel coat.

That would be odd. Try calling Azko Noble and ask them for a distributor in your area. 1-800-618-1010
