New panels, remove primer or what?


Recommended Posts

Hi again all,

What's the concensus of opinion on new panels?

When they arrive they have a coat of paint (primer?) on them. I've heard it said that this is for protection in storage only and should be removed before fitting to a vehicle.

Others say that it's ok to paint over the makers primer.

Obviously it's much quicker to paint over the primer but will it lead to early rust problems?

Obviously I'm talking about steel panels, not aluminium. RR rear wheel arch to be precise.

Any views would be most welcome.
