    To use any other primer you will have to sand the por15, I'd spend the money and use the por15 tie coat primer because por15 does not sand easily.

    I layed a nice heavy coat of POR-15 down on the floor then scuffed it up which was a pain. Then I layed down a heavy coat of Hurculiner about 2 years ago. It is still holding up really well, no pealing or anything. I would do it again. I had no probelms.

    I used POR15 on the floorboards and primer in other places. After scuffing the POR15 with Scotch Brite I sprayed on Duplicolor bedliner which is similar to the Herculiner in composition. The bedliner bonded better to the POR15 than it did to the automotive primer over metal. You don't need the POR primer or any other primer. Not to be negative....but, I would not use Herculiner or Duplicolor if I was to do it again. Neither one is strong enough to resist impacts or scratches. They need constant touch up if you play rough. If you can afford it, get a Rhino /forums/images/icons/wink.gif . See ya, JT
