Rust-Oleum Automotive Clean Metal Primer Spray is designed to prepare the surface of clean, lightly rusted or previously painted metal for application of automotive lacquers and enamels. Clean Metal Primer provides excellent rust prevention when top coated with lacquers or automotive enamels. For best results, top coat with Rust-Oleum Auto Paint. If using an auto lacquer, a test application for compatibility is recommended. Clean Metal Primer features an advanced spray system that allows you to spray at any angle, even upside down for those hard to reach areas. A comfort spray tip with a wider finger pad reduces fatigue caused by continuous spraying.
