What is the argument against thinning primer? Everywhere I read says not to thin primers like badger stnylrez. After getting fed up with trying to prime, I decided I would try thinning. I add two drops of windex in with my primer and the difference was night and day!
I live in a dry climate and previously I would get constant dry tip, the airbrush itself would clog, intermittent spray. The result was I would have to stop and clean my airbrush way more than I would like to. Priming a vehicle would take hours!
After thinning I got zero tip dry, no clogging, and the primer sprayed nice and smooth and dry to nice a flat and smooth finish. So far adhesion seems to not have suffered either. It seems like thinning has turned priming from an extremely frustrating experience to an easy one, I primed a whole vehicle in about 10 mins.
However, given that everywhere says not to do this, I wanted to make sure I wasn’t missing something?
