1966 GTO (restoration in progress)
Hey everyone. Because of the horrible filler and paint work by a previous owner, I am taking the entire car down to bare metal (in sections), making repairs, filling, and then covering with a coat of epoxy primer. Then, the goal is to follow up with the 2k high build primer and fine tune the body from there. The plan is to paint the car in Montero Red eventually. My question is, that even though the epoxy is going to be covered by several coats of high build primer, is the color of the epoxy primer (black or gray) really important to the finished paint? I can spray either, but have heard several conflicting opinions from some know-it-alls, and I'd rather get the straight answer from you guys. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
