    anyone familiar with PPG products. I primered my 72 blazer with a ppg product i think it was k-200, could have been dp90. that thing is hard as can be.
    i am resotring a 71 blazer and am looking for that same primer, anyone familiar with any of these.

    the primer on the 72 turned pinkish after beeing out in the sun a while if that will give anyone clues.

    thanks,

    ARQ.

    was it humid out also?
    paint and primers will blush if it isnt down in a climate control area.

    i sprayed Black primer that ended up grey.

    it was around the 70s, PPG on the 72 is still holding on strong. the 71 is what i am concered about. i just had it checked out by a painter, the paint on there was too thin. guess i should of paid a bit more to get it done right the first time.

    K-200 was a yellow filler primer...and I think it's been discontinued..because of VOC laws.
    NCT primer was pink filler primer...I think that may be gone too..
    K-36 is their most popular filler primer...that's what I use...

    All DP primers (epoxy)...have had ALL leads removed from them...
    The red primer is DP74LF...
    Black is DP90LF..Green is DP40LF...

    I hope this helps..
