How does John Deere's buff primer compare to a 2 part epoxy primer? If I use the buff primer I would only use it on the case, engine, rear end, wheels, and some other non-visible parts. On the frame, hood, grille, and pedestal I'm going to bodywork and fill primer so I'll need the two-part epoxy so I won't have any lifting issues. Is there any reason to use the buff over the epoxy? Thanks

If you are using Deere paint there is no need to use primer on the areas you mention. On some bare areas I spot with Rustoleum rusty metal primer from a rattle can. On sheet metal where you've filled or have some pitting I use urethane primer to hide sanding scratches etc. Then sand it with finer paper. You can paint directly over it.

If it were me, I would try it on a piece of scrap first. I have never shot John Deere paint.

Only if you can't get the top coat on with in the time limit it states on the can, or need to do more prep work before the top coat.

The only reason I would use the buff primer is because I wonít be doing anything other than spraying the primer then topcoating. Not sure about the Deere primer but I use Eastwood 1:1 and itís supposed to be able to topcoat for 5 days but I wait until itís flashed at about 30 mins to topcoat. I didnít know if the Deere paint would have a reaction or not.

Iím sure the two part epoxy will have better adhesion as it is catalyzed so itís resistant to solvents (like gas) compared to the Deere of which I assume is self etching.

I have used epoxy paint. I can not tell you if this was epoxy primer or paint...

When I painted my finished coat of green or yellow on it, it would eventually flack off because the epoxy was smooth and the paint would not stick to it.
I do not know if this applies to epoxy primer.
