Kilz

I bought some Kilz Complete which is their oil based interior/exterior primer... would there be a problem with me using it on the interior aluminum walls? Someone said that they didn't think I should use it, that I should get a auto primer.

Hey Trix,
I used Kilz, applied with a roller and an overcoat of interior latex. It's been five years now and have not had any problems. Looks good and wipes down easily.

That's what I like to hear. I was planning on doing the same thing. Do you remember which Kilz primer you used... was it one of their water based or was it their oil based?

I used Kilz oil based primer on my aluminum walls. Worked well & covered the previous zolatone perfectly. I'd use it again.

I used the oil base. Applied with a roller. You will need a short roller for the curved end caps.

Did either one of you use it over the bare metal also? My trailer is completely gutted so there are some unpainted metal areas where there were cabinets and sofa, etc.

I highly recommend a new water based urethane primer - STIX. The stuff sicks to just about anything including plastic, pvc, matal and glass.

Ace Hardware and Town & Country sell it around here.

Hey Trix,
Our trailer was completely gutted too. I had filled unwanted openings and rivet holes with automotive body filler then sanded the patch smooth. At this point some aluminum was exposed with the original Zolatone and I painted over all of it with oil based Kilz. It's still stricken.

The only place my paint didn't stick was a new piece of aluminum that I forgot to prime with Kilz. Prime your new aluminum!

I would sand any bare aluminum. No finer than 400, and/or a purple scuff pad.
