I just read in another thread how primer is not a good moisture barrier. If you wanted (as I do) to prep a few panels for painting now because of rust, but don't plan on getting the paint job done for another year, what would you cover the panels with? It needs to be something that will provide protection, and either come off easily when the paint job comes around or can stay on under the paint. Is there special "long-term" primer for this?
Thanks,
Simon
P.S.: There are no Eastwoods in my part of the world Generic names would help.

clear coat would work ok but a good primer/sealer would be better.

Thanks guys! Just one more question. I think I've used that stuff or similar, Mike. It's not rattle can stuff, right? I think I can thin it and put it in a spray gun, but if I brush it on then when it comes time for the paint job, they'll just smooth it down, right?
