Hi guys, I'm restoring a bike and I stripped old paint and sanded the frame. It is ready for priming and painting, but there is one little problem.. I can't find a primer spray anywhere. Before you point out where I can find it, I live in Egypt; here there is NOTHING. believe me I searched everywhere. There is a primer that comes in a tin can which can only be applied with a brush. That thing is terrible. I know i need a primer.. but what would you recommend I do if I can't find it (I also can't ship it cuz it's flammable).
Would painting/fine sanding the frame multiple coats (4-5) be an alternative to priming? if not, I'd appreciate any suggestion
I'm painting it white btw.
thanks for your 2 cents in advance
