  • What exactly is Primer?

    Please excuse the noob question. But I have no idea what is Primer and what is it for?

    Is it a paint? or is it a coating for paint? Do I apply it after paint or before? Does it provide a thicker layer coating?

    I'm in the process of fixing the dents of my car and I have no idea what to buy.

    Primer is usually put on before the paint, it bonds to the surface then the paint bonds well to it. It is not generally as attractive as paint but forms the bond between paint and other surfaces. Same as you'd prime a door then paint it.
