At some point I Have to paint the bug.
It is mostly aluminum , but some steel, and a bit of wood.
The Cat bottoms will be coated in GaterGlide slick paint, it has it's own primer.
Can I spray the same Primer on all the rest of it?
I'm planning on using some kind of "Implement" enamel in a light flat gray.( I'll hand paint camo )
I have an old style air sprayer , canister on the bottom.
What would be a good EASY primer/paint? I'm not painter.

To get the paint to hold you need to etch it with a mild
acid or the paint will chip off easy. Also remember
that AL is thin and will flex, think latex if you want
to stay camouflaged.

I bought an acid etch made for painting aluminum screen
