Back when I used to drive my comet, In a moment of stupidity I Partially "Primered" the car with Black "Sandable" primer. I've noticed in a few areas the primer is Flaking off. I've since come to love the Tame original Glacier Blue.

I wonder is there a way to remove the Primer without doing too much damage to the body paint?.

Joseph:
Post your question on the BBS' at Len Stuart's site: www.autobodystore.com and/or on Kevin Tetz' www.paintucation.com and I'll wager both Len & Kev & contributors can give you some good advice.
Excellent sites, full of good solid info, especially for body/paint related subjects.
Hope this helps.

Joseph: IF, and I mean IF!!! Your car has the ORIGINAL, never been repainted, finish under the primer, you can possibly get it off with a low grade lacquer thinner. Try a small spot first in a low visibility area. It may work. I did it once with a car that I bought. Work fast and have plenty of paper towels. WIpe on and wipe off. It HAS to be the original finish or possibly a 2 stage paint. If you sanded the finish before priming, you are probably out of luck! Hope it works. Be careful!

I forgot something else. You may be able to get some off first by yanking it off with duct tape. The tape wont pull off the original paint but may pull off the primer. No matter how you slice and dice it, it is a pain in the a**!

Joseph, The only thing that will take it off is lacquer thinner like mellowyellow said.

The only problem is, your going to have to scrub it to take it off. The old factory paint is nowhere as durable as today's finishes and it will come off also.

New basecoat clearcoat paintjobs (factory) can be wiped off with lacquer thinner but if you start scrubbing on them even that paint will come off.

You can try it but I would'nt suggest it. Thinner is highly flammable and you need to do it outside with proper protection.
Hope this helps!!
Later,

Doug
