    Has anyone given an in depth analysis or lecture about auto paint?
    I want to know the differences between primer, enamel, acrylic, epoxy, urethane, oil based, sandable, rust converter, when you use clear coat, hardener etc. Everything about paint, even getting into the chemical structure and properties if possible. And where to use these paints. What makes a paint chemical resistant or resistant to high temperatures?
    There’s so many different brands, marketing and misinformation out there.
    I’m currently cleaning up the engine bay and will be painting the firewall, chassis, engine, inner fenders, radiator core support, control arms etc.
