Rated 5 out of 5 by from another good polyester primer ive used all of the major brand polyester primers over the years. They all seem to aquire their own spray technique. Whereas I could get away with a 1.8 tip using evercoat featherfill, eastwood contour I had to use my 2.2 unless it was reduced the 10%...still a good HIGH build great sanding primer dry and wet. May be worth the $10 xtra dollars to buy featherfill G2 still. But im going to buy the contour primer again..like someone said above..Make sure to measure precisely. You have two Catalyst bottles = 64ounces or half gallon each. Peal of the label, mark the bottle mid way now you have quarts 32oz...divide into four and you hav pints 16oz. Stuff dries fast don't ruin it !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product!!! I purchased my first gallon of Eastwood Contour Polyester primer a month ago and used all of it up already. I had a relatively straight panel to after doing my rough body work with body filler. I then sprayed the Contour primer and I thinned it 10%. It sprayed great through my 2.3 tip. I used dry guide coat and sanded it smooth with 220 and then again with 320. It sanded like chalk after drying for only 90 min @ 70 degrees! The panel is lazer straight and ready for 2k primer after 1-2 applications of the Contour.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good stuff The concept of "spray on bondo" was a new one to me but this stuff works well. Some tips: 1) Stir it up using a BIG stick. This product settles out, and it is stiff. Shaking won't break it loose. I broke two regular wood paint stirring sticks in the process. Good arm exercise. 2)Strain it with a fine strainer, there are lumps even after a lot of stirring. My first attempt without straining properly resulted in a lot of gun plugging and sputtering. 3)Sprays well with the Eastwood Concours gun with a 1.8 tip and 40 psi at the gun inlet. Don't worry about trying to get it on too smoothly, because this stuff sands very easily. 4) I put on a guide coat and block sanded with 320 dry and then did 400. Because this polyester is fairly porous, my paint supplier suggested a sealer coat prior to the top coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy For the last 20+ years I've used Featherfill on my high end builds that need laser straight pannels. I decided to give eastwoods version a try due to its sale price. Overall I'm very happy with the product. Its been my experience with all of these firberglass resin high build primers no matter the brand its prudent to be patient and let the product cure over night before blocking. I like to play it safe. I've had shrink back issues due to haste on some past projects. As far as mixing, the stuff needs to be shaken thoroughly. It does settle! and stirring alone will not abolish the lumps. As far as adding the catylist, the mixing by weight instructions were too complicated and I can see it might be intimidating to new users. I like to use the KISS theory. My Kit incuded one gallon of primer and two bottles of catalyst. Peel back the warning lable on the cat. and eyeball or measure with a ruler half of it contents and draw a line on the bottle at the half way mark. Using a mixing cup pour a quart of primer into the container and one half of one bottle of catalyst. By doing it this way everything is divided equally as it came from the manufacture with out waste. I would also suggest that you only mix one quart at a time due to pot life parameters. If you mix too much at once It may start to harden before you get to use it all. Especially if the weather is warm. I KNOW!!! Be sure you use a large tip on your primer gun and apply as needed. As stated prior I like to come back the next day before I block. Sands Great but so have all the other priducts I've used. At any rate I'm very happy overall especially at the sale price. Keep in mind that this stuff as good as it is dosen't negate the need for good body work before hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Sanding Great product. Matches features as specified. Two suggestions: 1) Shake product prior to shipping to customer; product was very settled in bottom of can and extremely difficult to stir; 2) It wasn't clear that the proper amount of hardener shipped with the product, so I ordered hardener, but it turns out I received the proper amount of hardener with product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy to use product. Great product... one suggestion I offer is to remove the label on hardner and mark lines dividing it in half for quart(32oz) mixtures or in 4 equal parts for half quart (16oz)mixing. I also experimented with polyester fiberglass hardner with same results as supplied hardners in kit...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real time saver This paint is a gem to work with as far as getting panels straight as glass. It is a bear to mix if it has settled, but I found a paint mixer at Harbor Freight (part # 41014) for $3.99 and it made a world of difference. When you buy from Eastwood you know you're getting good products.

I have sprayed my substrates with Eastwood 2k epoxy primer. I'd like to block sand the truck to get it laser straight, can I spray this over epoxy primer to do my block sanding? Or should I use a different high build primer?
