Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chassis Black Primer Best primer I've ever used in my 69 years dealing with Rattle Cans
Date published: 2021-07-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just as good as any 2k primer. The quality of this spray can is unbelievable! The spray atomizes very well and it lays a good foundation for a 2k polyurethane overcoat. I will never buy the Rustoleum or Dupli color garbage again now that I have used this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great prep for the chassis top coat I bought this because I had some prep issues for the chassis paints with a couple of the other primers I have used. this seems to be holding up good now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprise in a Can! Doing a new project and purchased the Extreme undercoat, Chassis Black and Pre-Prep. Pleasantly surprised at the spray volume, pattern, and coverage coming from a can. Have done a few support pieces so far and am doing frame rails next. This is about 3/4's of a can for 2 solid coats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EW Chassis Black Primer Aerosol Since 2014, I've had a weekend project going to convert two damaged 56 INTL S-110 Pick-ups into a street rod. Both trucks needed extensive body repairs (what was good on one truck was bad on the other and vice-versa). After sandblasting and applying an initial primer treatment, I've consistently used EW Extreme Chassis Black Primer throughout the project whenever I expose bare metal after welding and grinding. This product has worked GREAT. The only thing is that each of my body parts now look like spotted cows with black primer in so many places on each piece. One happy hobbyist!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extreme Chassis Black Primer I purchased Extreme Chassis Black paint on sale a while back on sale. I finally got my Cycle Frame sandblasted and was ready to start the paint job. The insreuctions on the can recommended Extreme Chassis Black Primer, so I ordered a couple of cans. The Primer adhered to the blasted frame quite well and was a great base for the Finish coat of Extreme Chassis Black. The final job looks great. Only time will tell if it's durability is as good as its recommendations and reputation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I bought this primer and the extreme chassis black stain for the top coat. I also purchased Eastwood's After Blast and PRE painting prep, as to follow the instructions to the "T". I bought this "system" to paint all my small parts that couldn't go to the powder coater for a car restoration. This review will reflect the primer. Summary of how it went: Some of the parts were E-coated and some were bare. I treated the bare stuff with the after blast for 5 mins. or so then washed with the pre paint prep, the E-coated stuff was just washed with the pre-prep. Along with the parts for my car I sprayed a piece of scrap tubing to test the toughness after. I went really slow and methodical to try and get the maximum results that I could. I actually went as far as to warm the cans up and also warm the parts before starting. The primer sprayed nice and even, the pattern was good (disclaimer: I am not a pro, just a hobbyist. It sprayed good for me contrary to some of the negative reviews for Eastwood's rattle can paints) and the paint laid out really nice with no runs (multiple lighter coats). I shot the parts in between coats with a hair dryer to keep the climate warm due to is being below optimal temps this time of year and to help the primer flash off. I did this after noticing the scrap test piece I painted took almost 48 hours to become tack free. That piece I painted then moved inside the house where the heater was on from 68-70. When the paint is dry the finish on the primer is almost a matte finish, I would say optimal for an under car black color but probably not good to leave without a top coat. After a few days of cure time I took the scrap piece I painted and did some destruction testing ( the other parts were top coated within the time frame the directions called for). I was shocked with the results, the paint stuck way better than any other product I used in the past. The paint did come off with some persistence, but I would say it will hold up to the once in a while tool drop or splash of gas/chemicals. Final assessment: All and all this is one of the better products I have used to date. The primer has good adhesion, lays down nice and easy to apply. One can of this primer goes a long way as well. I bought 4 cans thinking that's what I would need and ended up using 1 for all the parts I had at 3 coats per, so that's a big pro! The one downside to this product I would say is that it takes a long time to dry under normal circumstances, the directions contradict the actual cure time. I will say that in hind sight I should have gone with Eastwood's 2K product line just for the added bonus of an actual 2 part paint system, so if that's even a consideration of yours I would advise just going with it. The price difference is negligible from this line to the 2K line in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Primer over POR15 I had blasted my Ford 9" and the painted it with POR15 to prevent any further rust. Because I knew POR15 wasn't UV resistant, I wanted to paint it Satin Chassis Black to match the rest of my frame and suspension pieces, so I hit the POR with some POR15 Self-Etching Primer to applying the Eastwood Chassis Black. MAJOR MISTAKE! I didn't notice you can't use the Chassis Black over a self-etching primer (not sure why but it is what it is!) so I had to strip off all the old coatings down to the POR15 (now THAT stuff is tough!) and then used the Chassis Black Primer before laying down the finish coats of Satin Chassis Black. Came out GREAT this time!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stuff! This product performed as expected, sprayed from the can without problem. Aroma wonderfully toxic. One knowledgeable observer thought that the primer coat was finish coat. That good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Using this on Frame and parts I'm using this on my 1928 Durant frame and I like the way it goes on. Another thing I like is that it comes in quarts and aerosol so you can do the smaller parts by can. I recommend it to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sprays on real nice. I can't paint, but I try. Chassis black primer sprayed on real nice, no runs, and that's a miracle for me! Can't wait to top coat with satin chassis black!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great primer I used this on a chassis and its much better than the stuff at the auto parts store, I only wanted to do this one time and this is worth the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from does the job A little to thin for me as a rookie I get too many runs. Waiting 24hrs to recoat or top coat drags out a job. covers well and drys nicely.
Date published: 2018-08-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Must Use As Directed...... This is an excellent product if you DO EXACTLY WHAT IS RECOMMENDED. If you cut corners (aka, don't use Pre-Prep or After Blast,) you may have issues. I did exactly as it recommended and it laid down a perfect coat. Hard as nails and perfect primer for the Extreme Chassis Product. Oh, be careful. If you let the product sit in the can for too long the solids will settle. Make sure you 1) Stir very, very well until most of the solids are broken up. 2) Use a strainer to filter out the particulate solids that don't get broken up. If you don't it will clog your gun.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very tough and chip resistant, trouble with adhesion I sprayed this over top of Eastwood AfterBlast and it proved to be a very tough and chip resistant even for a primer. I did have trouble with some places flaking and bubbling. I attribute this to me not moving the frame inside before the dew set in as only the top sides had this issue. Overall I would use this primer again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Results I'm glad that Eastwood came out with this primer. Now I know that I'm using the correct primer under Extreme Chassis Black. I brushed this on several types of surfaces, from smooth to rough, with good results. It covered in one coat and dried to the touch in 30-60 minutes.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Way overpriced. Overpriced. I guess we'll find out if it works but do I really need a two stage system for my undercarriage when I'm already covering it with paint that's nearly $20 a can?
Date published: 2021-08-16
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do Not Use On Rollcage I attempted to prime a rollcage with this product in order to apply Extreme Chassis Black. This product and the Extreme Chassis Black have the consistency of water. The paint was running and dripping everywhere just like water. I struggled to apply two coats, then when I went to scuff the primer, there were about 1,100,321 runs in the paint. I had to sand down the entire rollcage with 400 grit, which left about 121 areas that went back down to bare metal, in order to remove the runs because this paint is so thin. I will never buy any product from Eastwood again, and will be heading over to Summit Racing for some KBS, POR-15, or Summit Racing chassis paint.
Date published: 2021-02-13
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good for one use til the tip clogs. I am ticked off. This is fantastic chassis paint but the spray tip for the primer clogs after the first use. I now have 3 half-full cans of primer that I can't use because of clogged tips. They use a non-universal tip apparently. Before you ask, yes I invert the can and spray after each use like the instructions say. I don't have this problem with any other can of spray paint or with the actual Chassis Black Paint. Only this primer has the problem. This is absurd. I generally like Eastwood but poor quality has been really annoying me lately.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth buying I used Extreme Chassis Black Primer and finish and according to the instructions several weeks ago on my 1950 Studebaker. Before putting things back together I decided to turn the steering box upside down and flush it out with brake clean. The brake clean washed the paint and primer off instantly on contact. Very Low-Grade, Huge disappointment

Used 2 cans of  Self Etching Primer (#16014Z)  on +- half of my 57 Chev underfloor. Just learned it's not compatible with Extreme Chassis Black. I already have 3 cans. What is the negative reaction?? What can I use over the primer to fix this problem?

The extreme chassis black doesn't adhere to self etch. What does adhere perfectly though is our Ceramic chassis black. This is a two part catalyzed paint which is extremely durable and a perfect finish for an under floor.
