I'm like Bill Welch as I do not use primers. All they do is hide detail with an unnecessary layer of coating. I wash with Dawn and also
clean with a light going over in my grit blast booth if it seems needed. Then I paint with either Scalecoat or True Color/Accupaint. This is
done with brass, plastic, resin and wood all with good results. As we Yanks say, if it ain't broke don't fix it!
Cordially, Don Valentine
