I shall be starting to rebuild an Austin Seven later in the year. I am a long, long way from being ready to paint anything, but I am trying to decide what would be the best primer or base paint to use to prevent it from rusting whilst being worked on. I have fairly average home workshop equipment and no air-fed breathing equipment, which rules out using 2k paints. Is all epoxy primer 2k or are there brands available which can be used with a decent quality carbon or charcoal mask? Alterrnatively, is there another system of paint which is considered to be a decent alternative and which can be sprayed without a full respirator? Regards, James.
