another way to look at things is to check out some of these comerical direct to metal paints. I'm currently thinking about trying some ppg AUE-370 tech sheet cpcpb226. I dont know very much about this product I've seen the results of a similar dupont product. This ppg one is only available at a platinum level dealer.

Too much info for me to digest and figure out. I doubt if it has the gloss of automotive urethane, but some purists don't want the gloss, anyway. You will also have the problem of rust if it gets chipped. On sheet metal you are going to use primer and surfacer anyway to get a smooth finish. A quick scan indicates that the surface had better be sandblasted or some other method to insure adhesion, which makes me think there may be a question of how good it adheres to the metal. And epoxy is the easiest primer to use that exists. No reason to omit it except for a few minutes time, and of course the cost. Only my opinion without studying the stuff in detail. I'm not saying it won't work, but I don't want to take the time to see, I like what I am doing now.
