I never could find out what type of primer this thread was about. When you use any new paint you should get a specification sheet from the paint supplier. It has the instructions that should be on the can. They don't put much instructions on paint anymore to make room for hazard warnings in three languages. I don't care for alkyd primers but with that type of primer you can paint over it in 24 hours or next year. There is no recoat window. I prefer to use epoxy primers. The recoat window varies from product to product but I think most you should topcoat within 72 hours. After 72 hours it hardens up so much you have to go over it and roughen it up with sandpaper to get good adhesion. Its a lot of work and Epoxy primers don't sand very well so it is usually easier just to put another coat of epoxy primer on if you exceed the recoat window.

Thanks. Epoxy primer is what I plan to use. I would like to get a coat on there as I clean the parts up to prevent oxidation, with the plan to top coat later. If I can just shoot another coat of epoxy on there before the topcoat without having to sand/prep again, I'll be a happy guy.
