Prime Time

Today I got my acid etch and prime time. The acid etch is POR-15 Metal Ready, This was recommended from my paint supplier. I’ve never heard of it before but I’ll give it shot. I elected to use SEM EZCoat for my primer. I am skipping the alodine step. It seems to be either too expensive to get here, or too much of a hassle. I also picked up some underbed totes from Walmart for dipping tanks. Turns out one is cracked and I noticed it after I dumped the POR15MR in to it. After some creativity I managed to salvaged about 95% of it. I didn’t take any pictures of the process, but I did take pictures of the final layouts. I’ll let these sit for a day to firm up the primer and then begin riveting
