Does anyone know the differences between the ligh and dark primers.

I've always used the lighter primers with pretty good results.

This time while painting a project, I decided to use a darker primer.

Is there any difference between the two, or will both yield the the same results :feedback

If I was painting the car black I would go with the darker primer.
If it was going to be white, I would go with the lighter primer.
Other than that, it will do the same thing for you :cheers

Primer can be used to both mask the under color (if all of it wasn't removed prior to the primer), and the prepare for the over color. As was pointed out, the final color of the primer is usually dictated by the over color, but if you had a car that you could not remove all of the paint from, you choose the primer based on what prepares the entire car for the final color.

I used paint remover and stripped the car down to the bare metal, much faster and easier than sanding.

I like the way the darker primer went on better than the lighter primer that I had been using.

I never there was a difference in the two :cheers
