Can that primer be applied over bare metal? I couldn't find any tech sheets for it that would download properly. I know that advertisement says, "properly prepared . . ." and that could mean you need epoxy primer or etch primer on there first.

I'd still be reluctant to put 2K (urethane primer) over any large
bare metal areas. Even if the mfg says it's ok.
I would put epoxy on it first.

Remember you can buy etch prime in the rattle can. I used some yesterday on a truck Im workin on....Just a little around the edge of my bondo,,,30min later I was spraying my filler primer.
