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!!

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.

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.

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.
