    Sad, Sad deal, but I could be the poster child for Epoxy Primer. Not long after I had my chassis in primer & friend of mine talked me into taking it to a drag strip reunion. RAINED ALL AFTERNOON.

    That was in 2006. All these years later, sitting on concrete, hot humid summers, Getting pushed outside from time to time, Sometimes days under a tarp outside. The only rust is where I've wiped the primer off to do some fabricating.

    Take a shot at it yourself if you've got the space and a decent compressor. Eastwood, Summit, and TCP Global all have reasonably priced single stage eurothanes and it sounds like that would serve your purpose. You have to remember, every professional painter painted his first car at some point. You Tube has about a million do it yourself videos these days. Get one panel finished at a time, do your research, practice spraying on an old fender or hood; you might surprise yourself at how it comes out. TCP sells a single stage eurothane that you dont add a reducer; I was blown away at how easy this stuff lays out and how nice it looks. It's around $100 a gallon with the hardner and they have a lot of color choices.
