Painting 8.8 Soon:

So I'm getting ready to cut off my 8.8's spring-pack brackets and sway-bar brackets, along with a wire-wheel job to blow the rust/old paint off. Then I want to prime it bc it'll be sitting a while before I get to install it, (getting lift-kit first).

I was just wondering what kind of primer I should use. I usually use Rustoleum Grey Sandable, but is there something better I should use since it'll be seeing a lot of dirt/stones/rocks/grease and all? Something that'll stick to the semi-rusty surface better? Don't care about price by the way, it can be $20 a can and ill do it if its good lol.

Get it as rust free as you can then prime it with a general gray colored primer.

Use some rust converter 24 hours prior to priming. The rust oleum primer and paint will be fine.
