Hello, Im getting ready for paint just a bit more more sanding left. I went to home depot for paint and was going to use the Gliddon enamal but was told to use a killz 2 primer first then paint because the paint would not stick to the fiberglass. Is this a good idea or not? I am sanding off the gelcoat as it was pretty bad to begin with. Or do I just cover with the enamal after sanding and forget about the primer. Thanks Bryan

I always feel that a primer coat is a good idea when painting.
